I have been knitting - I finished the Lulu Leggings from Spud and Chloe - they were fun. Here's Emma modelling one - because they were for her I did shorten them quite a bit. After I finished these I went into a bit of a knitting slump - nothing I picked up particularly inspired me. I spent a few days working on stuff only the rip it all back. My beautiful We Wear Red Sweater was begging for attention but it wasn't quite what I needed.
For the past few days, I've been happily knitting away on my We Wear Red February Lady Sweater - my mind is ticking away with future projects but this is a priority! It looks a bit on the small side for me so I think I might give it to my cousin for her birthday - she's not a knitter but was extremely close to my mom so I know she'll love it.
On the shop front, new yarn is starting to arrive - we've had 4 big boxes of Fleece Artist/Handmaiden with Casbah, Mini Maiden, Sea Silk, Merino 2/6, Thrum mittens and Thrum socks arrive. Berroco is expected this week - I've ordered all the new Noro Silk Garden and Silk Garden sock colors and I'm in the process of considering a new yarn to debut at the Knitter's Frolic in September.
