We've been having fun (and relaxing) at the lemknitcrochet household the past few weeks. Last weekend I stayed home and knit - it was so nice! I was even able to finish a test knit for my friend Susan Claudino. This is her Jinx pattern and it is SO much fun to knit! I used The Cyborg's Craft Room Bested base in the Do Cyborgs Knit With Electric Yarn? and Chilean Blue Crocus colorways. I really love how she turned out.
This weekend I went to my first fiber festival in Boerne, TX called Kid N Ewe. It was a lot of fun getting to meet different local dyers, as well as a few Ravelry friends! I discovered a San Antonio dyer, Lone Star Arts, that had some stunning skeins of yarn and ended up taking one home with me. The dyer, Amanda, has a shop on Etsy - Lone Star Arts. Check her out, her colorways are BEAUTIFUL! Here's the skein I had to have, the colorway is Sharp Dressed Man.
Lost City Knits and it was hard to pick something, since everything was so vibrant! I ended up taking home a skein of sock yarn in Texas Tech colors because I just couldn't resist. The colorway is Whirlwind and it is so beautiful!
That's about all for now. I plan to finally Cast-On for our Hunger Games KAL this week with either Girl on Fire or Trinket. Decisions, decisions. Have a great week and I'll be back soon with details about our next KAL and some new designs in the works...
