My SIL’s Christmas Elvis mittens are done! The pattern is called Elvis Presley, (Ravelry link) and is by Lotta Lundin. I used Knit Picks Palette in white and black.

And then my Mom absconded with the rest of the yarn! I didn’t use a pattern… Continue reading FO Friday: Tigress Socks!

The festival was amazing – a much bigger event than I have been… Continue reading Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival
Not a lot different going on in my knitting world, but making progress on all the things. My cardigan fronts are about an inch from the armhole bindoff and lapel increases.

I started a pair of socks to take along on my upcoming trip to the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival. Because socks are the idea travel project 🙂 The yarn is from Urth yarns, and is their Uneek Sock Tigress. Meanwhile, my own tiny tigress wonders what the neighbors are up to.
