This week I took part in the Sweets Off The Wheel Ply Days, so I have lots of finished spinning to share, as well as some good knitting progress.  I also share a quick look at some goodies from another swap package and a HUGE birthday yarn haul!


I wax poetic about my local library, mention the free shawl knitting workshop by Helen Stewart, and her accompanying free pattern, the Spindrift Shawl.

Speaking of shawls, I'm gearing up for the 5 Shawls in 5 Days Challenge with Aroha Knits - 5 days of mini shawl samples in different shapes!  I'm currently working on the Aroha Knits Initiate Knit Design Challenge. Follow along on instagram with the hashtag #initateknitdesign.
