My Current Fix:
Jill was disappointed to realize that her Imitation Game sweater out of Knit Picks Palette was coming out way too big. She put it away to work on her Fish Lips Kiss Heel socks out of Regia 4-ply Design Line by Arne and Carlos. She made them shortie socks and used the rounded toe from the Rose City Rollers pattern. These are for the 2KnitLitChicks Never-Have-I-Ever sock KAL. She also started the Sizzle Pop shawl by Lesley Ann Robinson out of Hula Hut Tiki Sock yarn in the colorways Huckleberry Chuckle and Midnight.
What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill bought the pattern for Archer by Elizabeth Doherty. She'll use her skein of Forbidden Fiber Co Pride fingering in Mist with maybe a couple skeins of Color Notes Yarn Twinkle in Turquoise Strata or The Plucky Knitter Solo in Under the Sea. She got a free kit from Skacel to make a pair of Evil Eye Gloves out of Kensington HiKoo for the March For Our Lives on March 24. The pattern is the brainchild of Krista Suh and Kat Coyle. Jill bought a kit from Spincycle Yarns for the Fixation hat by Ann Weaver. The shawl for her sister may end up using the Tiong Bahru pattern by Asa Tricosa using Blue Moon Fiber Arts Marine Lace in Every Day Gray. She is also into a couple Kate Davies patterns including the Carbeth Cardigan and the Betty Mouat Cowl.
Other Re-ups include: Miss Babs, Western Sky Knits, Havirland Pax Sock from The Altered Stitch, Junkyarn, Knit Picks and Wool Buddy. Jill bought a necklace from Brittany (yarnbob) who has a shop at Fiber and Flame. She was helping at the Abundant Earth Fiber booth who had all of their merchandise stolen. Go order some yarn!
