My 2nd but definitely not last #vacillateStole is ta-done! This one is super slinky and luxurious out of @sunvalleyfibers MCS. Even in bright sunlight the camera is struggling with this color combo, but the outdoor FO-to shoot meant my neighbors got to meet Peg ( my dress form ) πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜„ http://ift.tt/1hF6hi2

One Done. Another just begun. My @716knit adventure walk socks have traveled many miles in my hands, while being knit. And will travel many more on my feet, once complete. #sockPoetry #SpaciousOMGheel http://ift.tt/1MJKNM8

Sometimes a yarn is just so gorgeous, that you plot and swatch and swatch some more, and nothing seems to do it justice. This stunning yellow @infinitetwist gradient has given me a huge case of designer's block. #yarnSwoon #soMuchPotential #knitting http://ift.tt/1h6lKXJ

I am in knit faster to make the yarn last longer mode, trying to eeek out 1 more repeat on this #vacillate stole by @wpknits. My camera can't quite figure out the colors, but trust me they are fabulous together. πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’š #beautifulFrontandBack http://ift.tt/1hNfdlo

This #hitofude is ready for its journey back to Illinois (from which it came)! I only knit the bottom half, and made it as long as I dared to. I love that this garment is a collaboration between friends and knitters. #yearofhitofude http://ift.tt/1WA47Af

Goodbye Vitamin D. Our relationship started back in 2013, with such potential and excitement. But we are a bad fit.....it's not you, it's me. I learned alot about what I am looking for in a sweater, and I think it's time to move on. #knitstalgia #sweaterBreakUp #frogging http://ift.tt/1IUQ29g

So very stuck on repeat! Here is another #hitofude out of gorgeous @missbabsyarns katahdin. It needs a few more repeats to be long enough, but the yarn ball has shrunk significantly compared to when I started on the bottom. #yearofhitofude #dejaqueue http://ift.tt/1PdDwDl

I finished my #vacillate top in time for #stitchesmidwest ! I love how it turned out, and the @jillmakesstuff Esopus washed up wonderfully. I won't tell you how late I stayed up last night to finish it, or you will think I am crazier than you already do πŸ˜‰ #crazyKnitter #knitting http://ift.tt/1JOPunw

I was flying along using the fun and addicting #vacillate stitch pattern, when I realized that I was going to run out of yarn, and the body would be very short. The sleeves were very deep, and the body had lots of positive ease, so I decided to #rippIt 🐸🐸🐸 It isnt easy to re-do work, but I never regret it. #noRegrets #beforePicture http://ift.tt/1M5uRVT
