As promised, a knitting post this week! I am going to break it down into what I am currently working on and then yarns and patterns/projects I am interested in!
I have been knitting socks and my never-ending seed stitch wrap lately. I am LOVING sock knitting, which is something I would not have said just a few years ago. I have a DK weight sock going and a traditional sock-weight sock going too. In the past, I have done 2 at a time toe-up socks, but this time I am doing one at a time so that I can really get the construction method down pat. I am doing things like taking measurements and counting stitches and all those things you do when you are trying to really understand something. I cast on both socks with Judy's Magic Cast On and have turned heels on both socks with the Fish Lips Kiss Heel. I'll post a proper update of my WIPs eventually, complete with photos.
In addition to sock knitting, I have been researching eco-friendly yarns. I have come across a few from Woolful and then learned about another one recently. Let's just go in list form, shall we?
-Camellia Fiber Company. I am absolutely swooning over the colors of these yarns!
-Sincere Sheep. Love it when a company can tell me exactly what sheep breed their yarn is from.
-Wing and a Prayer. Of course, a classic!
-De Rurum Natura. Again, loving the colors.
-O Wool. Can't forget about good old O Wool.
-Beaverslide Mule-Spun Yarn. Can we please talk about the beauty that is the Hidden Lake color way?!
-Woolly Mammoth Fibre Company. I just found out about this one this week and I am already in love with their beautiful yarns and instagram.
-Hey Lady Hey is another one I have been looking into lately, though the shop is currently closed.
