Show Notes:” All the Footnotes”

FOs:
♥ Fuzzy Wuzzy vanilla toe-up socks with Fish Lips Kiss Heel. I use Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind off on these.
♥ Rainbow Birthday Cat- I will put my notes and tips together in a recipe and post it up on my Ravelry account and the blog.

WIPs:
♥ Follow Your Arrow MKAL by Ysolda Teague- 1B & 2B
♥ Partying it UP and Getting DOWN socks by Megan Williams-had to rip and restart these a size larger. Biased stitch socks are gorgeous, but so hard to fit on larger calves. I think I’ll try ribbing the back section of the leg to help combat the snugness. I also tried out Jeny’s Stretchy Slip Knot Cast on–it’s fiddly but works. I am making these as my January entry for Kate’s 2014 personal sock club challenge.
♥ Resurrected an old WIP that was last touched in February 2011. It’s a stripped garter stitch stripey blanket to eat up my leftovers. It was inspired by Craftivore’s blanket.

Spinning A Yarn:
♥ Spun Right Round BFL in “Love Bug” on my microXL Trindle.

Stash Enhancement:
♥ My January Moonrover club arrived and it reminds me of a Doctor Who scarf!! I plan to spin this up into stripey socks.

I’m so Excited!!:
♥ I got into the Hello Yarn Fiber club after stalking the wait list to get an opening and then waiting almost a full year on top of that. ALL THE HAPPY DANCING!

Stitcher’s Corner:
♥ “2014” Woodland Sampler-Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. I am currently trying to resist the Once Upon A Time Sampler. It’s so stinkin’ cute!

I’ve been Dyeing to Tell you:
♥ Played around more in the dye pots this week and came up with some lovely colors that use neutrals with bright rainbow colors. Fantastic!

Coming up Next:
♥ Mittens
♥ Some blog posts for more wordy topics
