It may just be that I have been watching the #usolympicswimtrials2016 while knitting these socks, but this gorgeous blue @brewcity.yarns colorway is quite aquatic! Doesn't it looks like light reflecting off of rippling water? 🏊🏊🏊 #anotherWeekAnotherPair #Ravelry #iloveknitting #iloveswimming #OMGheel #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram http://ift.tt/296dTKo

The #CloseToYouShawl cast-on was inevitable and could be delayed no longer! I absolutely adore this @threeirishgirlsyarn colorway Rocket Man with the pops of brilliant #rainbow colors, and it works perfectly with the pattern! #gorgeousShawl #yarnSwoon #Ravelry #instaknit #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram http://ift.tt/2902fl6

Have you seen the #CloseToYouShawl by @letesknits ? I absolutely love the story and sentiment behind the pattern, and the stunning simplicity; and Justyna is generously offering it for free! I want to cast-on immediately! This is my pattern suggestion for Amy @jknitma who is asking for ideas to knit up her stash, and has some lovely skeins to giveaway.

I love the way the #MonkeySocks pattern makes these colors dance. 🐒🐒 I knit these for #zk2016 prize winners Amy and Lea, who picked these fabulous @AnotherCraftyGirl colorways! With these socks, I have hit the halfway point (26 of 52 pairs for 2016) of #anotherWeekAnotherPair 👍😀 #notMyMonkeysButMyCircus #handknitsocks #Ravelry #instaknit #knitstagram #knittersofInstagram http://ift.tt/28X4aHe

My #camploopy2016 project 2 yarn is swoon-worthy! 💞😍 I can't wait to #knit with this decadent BFL, silk, cashmere base #poshFingering from @theuncommonthread. This is going to be a fabulous, airy, and drapey #DarkPearl cardigan by #CarolFeller. 👍 #teamSapphire #yarnswoon #Ravelry http://ift.tt/290DZwl

My #HedgeHogFibres #CarpinoSweater by @feller.carol is ta-DONE, blocked, and had it's FO-to shoot! I love how the variegated colorway Dragonfly turned out on both the lace front and the stockinette back! I wish you could feel the fabric the yarn created, it is sooooo soft! #SummerKnits #Ravelry #knitstagram #instaknit #knittersofinstagram http://ift.tt/28LyPRT

A few moments of solitude on a shaded, red park bench with a slight breeze and a row or two of #knitting. The beauty of this Boomerang fish colorway from @AnotherCraftyGirl is only surpassed by the combination of the yarn with the #MonkeySocks pattern. 😍💞 #anotherWeekAnotherPair #adventurewalksocks #knitHappy #handknitsocks #knitstagram #knittersofIG #Ravelry http://ift.tt/28L5NNk

No matter what side you are looking at, this sweater is gorgeous! (Back pictured) 😍💞👍 When I decided to use this super variegated #hedgehogfibres sock yarn, it was a calculated risk, as there were not many non-solid/tonal versions out on #Ravelry project pages. But I am ever so glad I did! #CarpinoSweater #iloveknittingsweaters #riskySweaterBusiness #handknitSweater #knitstagram #knitterofinstagram http://ift.tt/1UyaL5C

My #CampLoopy socks have trekked all over #DuluthMN with me in a rather fun Lake Superior maritime version of #placesYouCanKnit! 👍😀 I will knit on the beach, I will knit on a boat, I will knit at the light house, I will knit on a ski lift, and I will knit on the lift bridge. #StaticZing socks out of @bcyarnings #selfstriping in the Lucky colorway. #adventurewalksocks #anotherWeekAnotherPair #handknitsocks #knitstagram #Ravelry http://ift.tt/25VZfc9

My whole family had so.much.fun at the @SpiritMtDuluth adventure park in #DuluthMN today. We all loved the Timber Twister, which is like a roller coaster and toboggan ride combined. You control the speed/brake and speed down the mountain on rails and then ride back up; in our case, over and over and over! 💞👍 We also did the zip line, mini golf, and sky lift (ski lift). #MinnesotaAdventures #lovemyfamily http://ift.tt/1Ub7ITK

I upped my #justRUNknit game today by running on the picturesque #DuluthLakeWalk trail alongside Lake Superior in #DuluthMN, which serendipitously led me to a yarn shop! 💞👍 @yarnharborduluth was closed for the day, but was so sweet to let me come in and take a look! #runningForYarn #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #fitknit http://ift.tt/1U5EMQ7

As promised, my #ZK2016 market stash enhancements to make everyone else feel better 😉 I couldn't help myself! Loads of gorgeous sock yarn (some already prepped for projects), mini skein kits, and somehow 4 sweater quantities snuck home with me!

I am all about these colors, texture, and asymmetrical shape for styling and wearability! #JoyAlloy shawl is now available on #Ravelry with 5, 6 and 7 mini skein color options. I had a few leftover coupon codes from #ZK2016, so be the first to grab one of these and the pattern is yours free! #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram http://ift.tt/1UgccK3

These colors can't stop; won't stop! My @dyeabolicalyarn targhee watercolor stripes and matching shorties for E (with a little room to grow) were great retreat #knitting! I don't know what I love more: the actual #handknitsocks or Ellie's excitement about our matching #stripedSocks! 💑💞😍 #Ravelry #ZK2016 #anotherWeekAnotherPair #knitstagram #iloveknitting #selfstripingsockyarn #instaknit http://ift.tt/1PCfR4K

Every year I am amazed by the wonderful group of #knitters that assemble for the Zombie Knitpocalypse retreat! 200 attendees brought kindness, friendship, and a fabulous sense of fun with them to Rochester; and that is what made #ZK2016 so special: YOU!
