I’ve sat down to write this post a dozen times over the last few days. I’m feeling a bit scatterbrained with my making and can’t really seem to synthesize all that’s happening into anything coherent. Let’s come at this from a different angle. The current state of affairs, in pictures:
I don’t eat the cupcakes, but I bake the cupcakes. Recipe from The Kitchn.
For about 30 seconds, this was the only project on my needles. I managed to brioche the brioche.
June rainbow socks are on the move. I think I knit the cuff too long. Le sigh.
I went to The Knot House for a Junkyarn trunk show. This dude stepped right into my awkward selfie and then I was too excited once inside to take any more pictures.
Junkyarn haul. (l-r) Lady Murasaki (mohair), Rosemary, Brigitte, and Amalthea. Not pictured, I might have picked up a little something for my FibreShare partner, too.
That yarn never even saw the stash before I wound it up. Also – cilantro flowers are pretty.
With the Madewell blocking, I finally got back to my swatching plans. And then I swatched something else, too.
Swapped destash yarn for sock cranking and received this–nearly 8 feet long–sock snake back this week. Afterthought everything, here we come.
It’s time to make pesto, again.
I finished the secret make, but can’t show that–so here is a gratuitous mohair floof shot.
I’m casting on some more colorwork as soon as I can get to it, wish me luck.
