♥ Clean Slates and Big Things ends on 31 May, make sure to get your FOs into the thread before the morning of 01 June. That day, I will be drawing for winners!
♥ Sock it to Summer: The Fourth runs from 01 June, 2016 —> 31 August, 2016. Please be sure to check out the threads in the Ravelry group for rules and guidelines. I will be putting them up in the next week. If you want to play along for prizes, be sure to join the group and have a good time!
♥ There seems to be enough interest for Fall Into Shawls to run it again this year. Be watching for more information as the summer comes to an end!
♥ If sock knitting isn’t your thing and you prefer shawls, during SitS, Dianne over at Suburban Stitcher is hosting her Around Your Neck KAL. Go check it out!

WiPs:
Blank Canvas by Ysolda Teague (5£ or ~$7.42 US): I am using US size 07 needles and my MoonRover Monster Spin handspun. It is a wild sweater!

Lessons about Sweater Spinning:
For future sweater spins, I think deciding the type of sweater I want to knit first will help me better determine how to spin the fiber. I would like to find a way to make stripe widths more consistent between sleeves and bodies. I also think I need to put more thought into color management and progression. Some of my colors together are a bit ugly and muddy.

Spinning:
♥ Still working on ITW “Bigger on the Inside”
♥ Hello Yarn TdF Prep thread and challenge: I changed around my entire bin!

Piggery:
Astral Apothic Soaps
Love Not Found graphic Novel
♥ Eat.Sleep.Knit. Flash Sale Goods

Lamby:
♥ Aiming for a weekend update

FOs:
♥ Virpi by Lilja Palmgren (~ $4.60 USD) knit with my LOOP combo spin on size 10 needles. This shawl is huge! I definitely recommend the pattern: it’s easy to customize and well-translated.
♥ Piece of My Heart sock sample for Lamby in “Heartbreaker”

WiPs:
♥ NONE, currently!
♥ I will soon be casting on some socks and a sweater. Watch for them next week!

Spinning:
♥ My ITW wheel spin took a break this week, but I pulled out a spindle and spun up a couple mini skeins from samples of fiber I’ve been meaning to use.

Piggery:
♥ My sweet friend, Kate, picked up an October House fiber grab bag for me from Ply Away. It’s gorgeous!
♥ My Hello Yarn April fiber club arrived, as well as extras from March’s fiber club.
♥ Part of my order from Little Skein in the Big Wool arrived: it’s a Barruntando yarn bowl with little sheep! So sweet.
