Ah, there’s that lovely Vimeo video preview again…I look so angry. I was in a bit of a rush this week and started talking pretty fast. “Fun” fact: one of my grandparents nicknamed me, “Motor Mouth,” as a child. She added to the sting by making me an awful acrylic sweater with a bunny talking on the phone…and the words, “yakkity yak,” embroidered all over it. I never got over that one and started to withdraw more out of fear that I’d be made fun of for talking.
If I’m really excited about something, I can talk forever and at hyper speeds.
Onto the show notes!
♥ Pinkie Pie Socks – “Ribbed Socks for Kids” by Susan B. Anderson.
– US size 2 needles. Knit Pick’s Felici in “Positively Pink.”
– Made these as knee highs for my daughter with a 7.25″ leg. Managed to make a pair out of a 50g skein with a couple yards leftover. I often have just under half a skein of yarn from my own socks…I may have a future use for those partials.
♥ Crafty Neck Thingie – “Malabrigo Neck Thingie” by Anne Sahakian.
-US size 8 needles. Used Another Crafty Girl Merino Worsted in “Robo Boogie.”
-Pattern is a bit short as written, IMHO. I had enough yardage left over that it could have easily been made an inch or two taller. Also, not sold on the purl/knit alternating welts.
♥ 20 Penguin Puffs – My own pattern/improvised.
♥ Gnomies Can Never Be Broken – I am so close to having these done! It was a shame I couldn’t find the final 2 hours I needed so I could show them off this week.
♥ It’s On Like Donkey Kong! – “Ribbed Socks for Kids” in Hiwassee Creek Dyeworks Sassafras Sock: “Donkey Kong” colorway.
♥ Hoo boy. A lot this week after a month of almost nothing. But the coat yarn is here!! Yay!!
