In my grand tradition of all #knitting events I attend, I have officially over packed waaaaay more projects than I could ever knit in 4 days. But you never know what you will want to knit! πŸ˜€πŸ˜ From L to R: #handknitsocks, Urban Tribe #colorwork cowl, #AiskewHat, and #ChecksandBalancesPullover. So excited for #svfjanuarythaw2016! #Ravelry #knitty #knittersofinstgram #loveknitting #knitstagram http://ift.tt/1PC0dQe

Socks for my husband with his size 12 feet are usually a slog. This is my quickest pair of #handknitsocks for him yet, and they fit him perfectly! To say I am addicted to #skewSocks, and this gorgeous @leadingmenfiberarts variegated colorway, is an understatement. #dejaQueue #Ravelry #knitstagram #knittersofinstgram #instaknit http://ift.tt/1Uncex7

My #WhitePineSweater is a #ablockaway from being #tadone! I continue to love the bouncy and soft @cyborgscraftroom Targhee, the perfectly pink and red 'Punch' colorway, and all the lines created by @dreareneeknits gorgeous design, including the cuff detail! http://ift.tt/1OHVmQ6

Check out the beautiful lines the #WhitePine pullover by @dreareneeknits creates; so simple, yet aesthetic and dramatic. And I am also smitten with this tonal Targhee yarn from @cyborgscraftroom; it is so squishy, stretchy, and gorgeous. #yarnSwoon #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #knitstagram #igknitters #instaknit http://ift.tt/20hQkPE

My short indoor walking break today felt very productive. #multitasking By getting steps in, listening to @nph read his super entertaining and ingenious concept #chooseyourownautobiography, while #knitting on yet another pair of #skewSocks with #highlandhandmades Friends of the Forest and #girlcavebags. I highly recommend every part of the experience! #knitFit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #knitstagram #instaknit http://ift.tt/1V6tM0A

That moment when #knitting knee highs for your daughter forces you to realize just how long and tall she has grown the past few months. I am so blessed to have this growing too fast young lady in my life, and she is totally #knitworthy of these looooong #handknitSocks. #newDesign #Ravelry #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #knitstagram #instaknit http://ift.tt/1ngEJT0

When your husband is bicycling in sub-zero temperatures, but doesn't wear his super warm #handknitSweater you knit him back in 2013 because the neck is too big, you #knit that man a smaller neckline! The #flax is knit top down, so I had to pick up stitches and work up. The leftover yarn is from a darker part of the skein, but it sure will be warmer than not wearing it! ❄⛄🚲πŸ”₯πŸ˜€ #makeItWork #knittersofinstagram #knittersofig #knitstagram #Ravelry #instaknit http://ift.tt/1OxLHJV

Guess who took scissors to her #handknit garment for the first time and now has a #sweater she can try on with a fabulous fitting v-neck? This knitter right here! πŸ˜€ I may have gone a little overboard with the sewn reinforcements, but I am so happy with how the #steeking went! #TiberCardigan #extremeknitting #Ravelry #instaknit #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram http://ift.tt/1WghmEK

This is what happens when matching yarn and project syndrome combines with self-striping Valentine's sock cast-on-itis. So many Valentines self-striping socks are needle adjacent projects right now. #girlcavebags #vespersockyarn #highlandhandmades #dejaqueuekal #Ravelry #instaknit #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram http://ift.tt/1UVMBn5

This @twosistersyarnco 12 stripe colorway is just.so.beautiful and fun! Each stripe is the birthstone for the every month of the year, and was custom created for the #stockinettezombies self-striping KAL. These are another pair of #skewSocks for the #dejaQueueKAL πŸ’žπŸ˜€πŸ˜ I am totally #stuckOnRepeat with this sock pattern. #handknitsocks #knittersofinstagram #Ravelry #knitstagram #instaknit http://ift.tt/1Q1jxcG

I am overflowing with gratitude and disbelief! My dear friend and #knittingHero Cori knit me a #hiro out of #sunvalleyfibers MCN! I feel so honored to have 1of the so many (over 15?) that she has knit for loved ones. These colors are so me and it is sooo soft!

Thank you to everyone for the wonderful birthday well wishes! I spent the day doing things I love: #knitting, #running, drinking coffee and tea, and making my favorite kind of cake, #yarn! πŸ˜‰ I was spoiled rotten by my loved ones with #teavana, peanut M&Ms, and a #handknitsweater, the #pullmeover, in my favorite green from my dear friend Susan!

I didn't realize it as I was indulging in a @spunrightround shopping spree, but these all coordinate so well!

Don't mind me, just blissfully staring at my knitting..... I think I am spending more time admiring this than knitting it, but can you blame me!? I love this geometric design #TiberCardigan. The #GaleWoodsFarm Finn-Corriedale blend is so soft yet sheepy, and the tonal @infinitetwist Hookers Green is stunning! πŸ’žπŸ˜πŸ’ž #colorworkaddict #Ravelry #knitstagram #instaknit #knittersofinstagram http://ift.tt/1R838pS
