๐ŸŽ†Happy 4th of July! ๐ŸŽ† I am enjoying a lazy holiday at home with plans for fireworks tonight and very little else but knitting. I am completely in love with both this pattern and yarn: #FriendshipRoad by @irocknits #minnesota52 @knitcahoots with @cey_yarns Cricket (discontinued Cotton Merino) with such a fun marl and great hand. It really makes the addicting and simple Friendship Road motif ๐ŸŽ‰POP POP๐ŸŽ‰ What are you up to today? #cantstopwontstopknitting #ravelry #knitTheRoad #loveGreen #knittersofinstagram

#yarnLoveChallengeDay20 is #handmadeHome I tend to knit a lot of knitwear and not a lot of home items. But there was that one time in 2009, when I bought 12 skeins of @lionBrandyarn homespun, cast-on a ton of stitches on the longest circular needle I had and knit garter for what felt like infinity. I knit it as one piece and I was monogamous at the time, so I literally carried it around in a tote bag, lol! It was worth it though, as I am sitting underneath it right now as I type this.
