This Week

Hi, Knitters,
This week flew by faster than usual. My last post did not go out to email subscribers so I have tinkered around with a few things to try to fix it. I want to see if it will work today.

I finished writing a pattern for Unicorn Books for our Opal sock yarn toy series. I used the Lantern colorway of the Little Prince yarn line and a small amount of the black and natural solids from Opal. Once I see that this post goes out to subscribers I will write more about the new pattern.

I received a nice note from Gale of Gale's Art. I posted a photo of a skein of her beautifully dyed yarn on instagram and apparently she had lots of people show up at her booth at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival mentioning this photo and wanting to buy the same skein. I just started a pair of socks with it yesterday.... more to come on those.

Click here for Gale's Art on Etsy!  The yarn is called Graffiti and Asphalt Wonder Sock! This colorway is so cool and there is no filter on the photo above.

I turned the heel and finished the gusset on the sparkle Opal sock. I am loving this yarn. It is the Opal Hundertwassers Werk 625 Winterbild Polyp Wintergeist. 

Okay, I'm crossing my fingers that this post will be sent out to subscribers.

I will count up the sweater votes from last time and let you know the informal results. Quite a few of you chimed in so thank you! I loved reading your comments and thoughts.

Happy weekend to you all. I hope you find time to knit over the next few days.
best, susie
