A dreary, chilly, drizzly Saturday calls for bright stripes and hot tea. Another pair of #SkewSocks with @yarnenabler #selfstriping Girls Night colorway. I wound the coordinating mini skein on the outside of the cake, and it is making me crave sushi! #anotherWeekAnotherPair #Ravelry #knittingBrightensMyDay

This week my family has been going on day trip adventures, and my kids' favorite stop by far has to be stumbling upon this awesome donut shop @glamdolldonuts 👍👍😍🍩 Tons of unique and delicious flavor combos, including lots with bacon! @glamdolldonuts #daytripping #familyFun #lovemyfamily #theyLoveDonuts

My #ravellenics2016 project is #taDone! Getting a picture proved to be difficult, as Peg (my dress form) only has 1 skinny leg. I love how these fit, and also that the shaping in the ribbing looks like muscles! #mirrorPhotoshoot #myNeighborsThinkIamCrazy #coldWeatherHereICome #Ravelry

We are closing in on the Olympics Closing Ceremonies, and my #Ravellenics leggings are almost complete. They seem impossibly long, but all of that ribbing stretches wide and shortens up. I hope to turn the waistband and put in some elastic just in time! @nomadicyarns and @leadingmenfiberarts FTW! #ravellenics2016 #Ravelry #ilovecolor #looooonglegs

#taDone This may not be the largest shawl I've ever knit as far as yardage, but it is definitely the longest! Without wrapping it over my shoulders, it drags on the ground; such a great knit #Kallara by @ambahobrien with @hedgehogfibres sock from @theloopyewe for #camploopy2016 ! #Ravelry #doesYourShawlHangLow #iloveknitting

The theory of relativity of knitting: when knitting 1 leg for leggings makes you realize the knitting sleeves isn't that bad! How did I not realize how long my legs are!? Also #HappyCaturday from Max! #Ravelry #ravellenics2016 #looksLikeALegLamp #iloveknitting

After a few false starts, and a game time yarn substitution, my #ravellenics2016 project is a GO! I am knitting and designing some striped leggings with a faux cables motif. I am in love with the color combo of the #leadingmenfiberarts soliloquy BFL base in the London Fog colorway, and the tonal #nomadicyarns Brit BFL base in the Here Comes Your Man colorway. #ravellenics #Ravelry #looooonglegs #anotherWeekAnotherPair #knitstagram #knittersofig

Indecision, indecision! I swear deciding what to knit is soooo much easier than selecting buttons. Help me decide which buttons to use on my #DarkPearlCardigan so I can wear it at #stitichesmidwest! Do you prefer the shiny silver or the smoky grey buttons? #buttonindecision #Ravelry #iloveknitting

Happy August and #camploopy2016 project 3 cast-on! I am knitting #Kallara by @ambahobrien out of #HedgeHogFibres and these colors really #PopPop together! This blue is so gorgeous; the colorway is Wish, perhaps because you *WISH* you had another 3 skeins! #Ravelry #knittersofinstagram #iloveknitting
