My knitting time this week has been scant but immeasurably pleasurable. I’m working on a new pattern and got this skein of Tundra from The Fibre Company to swatch with, thinking it might be the perfect yarn for the design, and holy alpaca is it wonderful stuff. And I did do my little bit of cable surgery last Sunday, which means the long-suffering cardigan is ready for my attention again. So I’ll be making time for both projects this weekend, if all goes well. (I know, monogamy, whut?)
1) I felt bad about pointing you to Rebekka Seale’s tasty Camellia Fiber Company while she happened to be low on skeins. But she mentioned in a message to me that she’s got new yarn going up today, so check back over there.
2) Angela Hickman followed up on my remark last week about not knowing what #CaribouKnits is all about. She pointed me to the source, and it’s a pretty awesome project, so take a look at that too, please. And I apologize for being inadvertently flip about it. More power to Kay Gardiner for having contributed miles of tweets to the cause at this point, and being wildly entertaining in the process.
3) I was asked whether Rhinebeck attendees who aren’t on Instagram could tweet with the #rhinebeck4fringe hashtag to enter the Rhinebeck Sweater contest, and the answer is YES. I’ve added that to the original post. Thanks so much to everyone who’s helped get the word out so far! Here’s hoping for photos.
Happy weekend, everyone. I may not always ask, but I always want to hear about what you’re working on…
