Knitting a few rows here and there inbetween #ZK2016 errands (all the things before tomorrow!) These colors are so saturated and fantastic jewel tones. @dyeabolicalyarn watercolor stripes, targhee base. #handknitsocks #yarnSwoon #anotherWeekAnotherPair #iloveknitting #knitstagram http://ift.tt/1spkPY9

How many wee socks is too many? 😀😉 I may be slightly addicted to #knitting all the #weeOMGheel socks! Such a fun quick project to use up scraps and practice the heel. The pattern is now available on #Ravelry and get it free with the code 'WeeOMG' if you have ever purchased the #OMGheel or #spaciousOMGheel. #loveknitting #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #zk2016 http://ift.tt/1si4OmT

My swift has a cover (and is no longer naked)! I have been storing my swift in the box they came in, but I am super excited about my @ewesewansew swift cover! It is padded, has an awesome, sturdy drawstring, and how fitting that it was smiling yarn on it, as my swift helps me make happy yarn cakes 👍😀 #knitting #pimpMySwift http://ift.tt/1NR3jpA

Summer FUN indeed! These colors alone are so.much.FUN, but together they are even better. This asymmetrical, triangular, textured shawl design is all about color, combinations, and JOY!

Lucky Ellie! Ellie not only won our game of #Skipbo, but is also sporting a brand new pair of #handknitsocks. I am treasuring every moment she still wants to play games with me and is excited to wear the socks I knit for her. Another pair of leftovers rollers, toe-up #spaciousOMGheel. #Ravelry #knitstagram #iloveknitting #lovemyfamily #anotherWeekAnotherPair http://ift.tt/27RKyJj

#HappyCaturday Isn't Max the best sock model? 😀💑💞 My wee #OMGheel sock for class at #ZK2016 isn't quite mochi-mochi size, but it is Max sized. 😻 5g of yarn and 30 minutes of #knitting and you too can have 1 cat sock. 😉 #knittersofinstagram #crazyKnitter #catsdonthaveheels #lovemycats http://ift.tt/25f07fl

This is one of my favorite places in all of #RochesterMN, other than with all the fabulous #knitters when they come to town in June. Hi I am Megan, one of the organizers of #ZK2016, and it hardly seems possible it has been 4 years of these retreats. #zk2016tag Tagging fellow ZKers, @leaaline @swordofaknitter @sunvalleyfibers http://ift.tt/27J88rB

Happy #socksSunday! Ever since I started #anotherWeekAnotherPair (knitting a pair of socks a week), Sundays are for wrapping up one pair and starting another. There is so much to love with this week's socks: the base, the colors, and trying out asymmetrical toes! Yarn: @yarnGeekFibers Corriedale base in the Cloud Smiles colorway.

What a discovery! I can get another pair of shortie socks for Ellie out of the leftovers from my socks. I call these Ellie Rose Rollers: toe-up #spaciousomgheel with a rolled top. She loves that we have matching socks and the style, and has worn them every day since I finished them (I had to make her put them in the wash). I see many more pairs in my future! #memademay #knitworthy #ravelry #handknitsocks #anotherWeekAnotherPair #knitstagram #knittersofig http://ift.tt/1X0HOUM

My #mothersdaycaston2016 accompanied me and my family on an awesome walking adventure that included fantastic weather, a delicious lunch and a fun playground. This fabulous colorway from @yarngeekfibers was quite the treat! I love and keep admiring the neon POPs with the tonal denim blues. #yarnSwoon #toePic #adventurewalksocks #anotherWeekAnotherPair http://ift.tt/24ELmSJ

#HappyMothersDay to all the strong, positive, and supportive women out there and in my life! I get such a kick out of my kids' cards every year. Q thinks I am 20, would go to work if I had more time, am good at 'yarning', and if we could go anywhere would go to Baker's Square. 😅 D's handwriting is improving so much, and E always comes up with a beautiful picture and sentiment. #lovemyfamily #feelingSoLoved 💑💞😘 http://ift.tt/1rIeW7Z

Today was all about celebrating my man's birthday with bicycling, beer, and a bevy of delicious food. We biked from #CannonFalls to #RedWing on the #CannonValleyTrail, and had a fabulous lunch at @Stagheadgastropub. Here's to many many more years and adventures! 🎂🎉 #lovemyfamily #beermeStaghead #bicyclingadventures #41years41miles http://ift.tt/1T2mw9O

As much as I loved #knitting with the @malabrigoyarn #RiosYarn, I know I will love wearing it even more! It is so very soft all washed up, and the colors are just too gorgeous. I will be rocking this #IrishCoffee by @theacolman soon and often! #handknitSweater #yarnswoon #Ravelry #knitstagram #instaknit #SZspringGreenKAL http://ift.tt/24wIeVv
