Cast On: Into The Light

The first thing to hit my needles after my winding party is the Into The Light shawl by Casey Day-Crosier.

I did end up swapping out one of my color choices for a last minute addition. My gut told me to do it so I just went with it. I decided my final combo would be Hue Loco Spun Sock in
“Skip With Me” (my first color), Twisted Owl Fiber Studio Super Sock 4 ply in “Razz-Ma-Tazz” and finally Into The Whirled Meridian Sock in “Scissors Lizard Spock”.

I have the tiniest of the tab of the beginning of the shawl. This project does have you hold the yarn double. My needles aren’t the sharpest so I have to be careful to make sure I grab both strands. But otherwise, I REALLY love this project. It eats yarn sooooooo fast and I can’t wait to get to the first color fade.

Happy Knitting!!

Happy Mother’s Day To Me

My husband is a dear man. But he’s about as observant as the average knitting muggle. He has over the last 12 years taken an interest in my knitting and shown a great appreciation for my hobby. But he wouldn’t know sock yarn from bulky yarn if it hit him in the face.

I’ve been having a rough time at work adjusting to a lot of changes and new staff. It has left me drained by the time I get home. Mother’s day was approaching and it was a particularly bad day that had me window shopping on Etsy. I knew my husband hadn’t gotten me anything so I sent him an Etsy screenshot and said “I want this for Mothers Day”. It was a large project bag from Tannei Casey And he said ” buy it”. So I did…

It’s a wonderfully large bag made of some of the sturdiest material I have felt in a long time. The inside has two organization pockets and a box bottom.

The heavy canvas bottom might be my favorite thing!  I need to clear my needles a bit of WIPs and then I can’t wait to get a project started that will live in this bag!

Did anyone else get anything yarny for Mothers Day?
