I finished this week's #anotherWeekAnotherPair #poolside at @adventurelandinn during our July family trip. Who would have thought at the end of July in Iowa it would be chilly outside? But the kids are loving this indoor sky-light filled pool play area. @knitcahoots design with #vespersockyarn @knitterly_thingsπŸ’žπŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸŒŠ #handknitsocks #lovemyfamily #Ravelry #instaknit #knitstagram #knittersofIG http://ift.tt/2akl7fO

Regram of @knitcahoots: This is by far our favorite design/book planning meet-up location! Sitting next to Lake Byllesby in the shade with a cool breeze, and our only worry is whether the wind will whip away our papers with notes. πŸ–πŸŒ…πŸŒŠ #knittingAndChatting #inCahoots #knitDesign #knitstagram #instaknit #anotherweekanotherpair http://ift.tt/2aEiKAa

Severe weather got in the way of my plans today, but the sun is out now, and another #CloseToYouShawl is #taDone and blocked! I love the results of this wonderfully speckled @brewcity.yarns colorway combined with a fabulous design by @letesknits #Ravelry #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #wishIwereclosetoyou http://ift.tt/2aDdeh3

Knitter, Knitter, what do you see? πŸ‘€ I see gorgeous self-striping stripes for a brown bear, red bird, yellow duck, blue horse, green frog, purple cat, white dog, and black sheep looking at me. πŸ˜πŸ’ž I have read #BrownBearBrownBear so many times with each of my kids that I just couldn't resist this fabulousness from @neeleysknits! #yarnSwoon #Ravelry #knittersofinstagram #instaknit #knistagram #yarnEnabling http://ift.tt/29TLseX

My solution to being design-blocked: grab a fun, gorgeous skein of @brewcity.yarns and cast-on another #CloseToYouShawl! This pattern is great inspiration for simplicity with stunning results! Plus #girlcavebags hippos make me happy! πŸ’žπŸ˜ #Ravelry #knitspiration #knittersofig #knitstagram #instaknit http://ift.tt/29YDpQl

In a world that sometimes feels like violence and hatred are taking over, I feel so fortunate to have #knitters and friends who spread kindness, love, and beauty! πŸ’ž THANK YOU doesn't seem like quite enough @yarnhoarder for surprising me with these trees that remind me so much of Melly, and to @andresueknits for creating such beauty that my sister most certainly would have loved! 🌲🌲🌲#hugATree #knitATree #yarnswoon #Ravelry #knitstagram #instaknit #knittersarethebestpeople http://ift.tt/29WPcyn

After many, many #skewSocks successes, this pair for J has given me fits! πŸ€” I had to try no less than 8 times to get the heel to fit, but the 2nd sock is now smooth sailing. I love how this @sunvalleyfibers colorway Mr Zombie worked up on the bias! #handknitsocks #anotherweekanotherpair #Ravelry #instaknit #knitstagram #knitwithlove http://ift.tt/29wJuk6

1 for me, 1 for you! πŸ‘πŸ‘ I was so excited that Laurel of #spinningfates was dyeing again, and I loved this self-striping colorway Radio GaGa so much, that I just had to grab 2!! #yarnSwoon πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’ž @stockinettezombies will be giving away 1 skein as part of the #2016SZstripes KAL. My skein will most likely be #handknitsocks, what would you knit? #Ravelry #knittersofinstagram #iloveYarn http://ift.tt/29RKDrD

I am slowly and steadily growing #sockLove in my family! πŸ’žπŸ˜˜ This week's #anotherWeekAnotherPair is for Dex, and he loves his socks with the Mr. Zombie colorway from @sunvalleyfibers. He is patiently waiting for when I get his brother's and Dad's matching pair done 😁 #Ravelry #handknitsocks #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #instaknit #lovemyfamily http://ift.tt/29GolX5

Happiest of birthdays to this smart, beautiful, and strong young woman! She made me a mom 10 years ago today, and has amazed me every day since! She only put down her birthday present (Android device) to eat crab legs and drink a non-alcoholic mango daiquiri at @redlobster! #ElliesFavoriteThings #thisIs10 #lovemyfamily http://ift.tt/29EdCfs

I love delivering #handknit items in-person! πŸ’žπŸ˜ But we were having such a great time this past weekend that we didn't stop to snap a picture of my Mom's socks on her feet. They are so soft, her favorite colors, and fit her so well! So instead, here is one of my favorite pictures of her with E snuggling and watching fireworks. #brewCityYarns #handknitsocks #Ravelry #knittersofinstagram #instaknit #lovemyfamily #anotherWeekAnotherPair http://ift.tt/29zNeDS

Happy 4th everyone! We've been busy enjoying time with my Mom and brother, and also loving the fabulous weather for outdoor fun. Yesterday we headed to the lake and had tons of fun at the beach. #latergram #lovemyfamily #socksOnTheBeach #anotherWeekAnotherPair #Ravelry #handknitsocks http://ift.tt/29pgUVm

BFL, cashmere, and silk have me like πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’žπŸ˜ The depth of color, drape, and sheen of the @theuncommonthread Posh fingering yarn is such a great combination with the #DarkPearlCardigan.

Happy Saturday! It was a beautiful #MN morning and my #footGolf Squad was ready to play at @willowcreekgc! I am much better with a soccer ball than a golf ball, but I still struggle with putting. Everyone had a great time! #getoutandplay #lovemyfamily πŸ’žπŸ˜πŸ‘ http://ift.tt/29haiYZ
