WIPWed #56: Where Did May Go?

Wow, guys. I can’t believe that I haven’t done a single WIP Wednesday post since April 30th! Crazy. This month is seriously flying by. I have made a tiny bit of progress on some knitting projects and started a couple others, so let’s take a look!

Blue Loasa:

I’m nearing the toe of my Socks that Rawk! Q2 KAL socks. It has been an extremely quiet KAL so far… I appear to be the only one knitting! Seeing as I’m the slowest sock knitter ever, that is particularly sad. Oh well. Still a pretty pattern!

Linen Bryum:

Inspired by all the graphic shawl patterns out there, I cast on a Bryum by Cailliau Berangere with some new-to-me linen yarn. I’m not convinced that the linen will soften up much after blocking, considering I blocked a swatch and it still feels pretty rough. I think the garter stitch might be a bit too textured to give the fabric a really smooth hand. However, I find myself compelled to keep knitting it anyway and just see what happens… so I guess I’m doing that!

Secret Swatch:

BMFA Marine Silk Sport, colorway Ramalaba

This project is currently a secret, but I wanted to show off the pretty silkiness of its stitches nonetheless, so there it is!

Spinning:

Turtle!

Besides the pretty silk I just spun up, I’ve been spinning some angora on my Tibetan spindle and am still chipping away at the Nunoco batts on my Aegean Turkish spindle. It’s been slow and steady with those spins, they’ll be around for a while I bet.

Sample sized gift sets at Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe!

As for Sweet Sheep, I’ve just added themed gift sets (florals, fruits, sweets, etc) of three sample sized bars to the shop. Also, if any of you are local, you can come by the Mount Hope Farmer’s Market & Spinner’s Picnic this Saturday (May 31st) in Bristol, Rhode Island to sniff some lotion bars in person!

Oh, and one more thing! You have until tomorrow (Thursday 5/29 11:59pm Eastern) to enter the Karbonz needle giveaway in this post. Good luck, and check out more WIPs at Tamis Amis!

  1. I love your sheep packaging! So perfect! My May has been quiet because of all the secret swap knitting I’ve been doing lately … June will be full of “now I can show this!” posts!
