Happy Memorial Day and thanks to all that serve and protect. πŸ™πŸ™ I got a healthy dose of relativism today. Mother nature reminded me that it is indeed still May on Minnesota and not summer yet. And after working with linen for a day, this wool feels so very soft and smooshy! #rockingthejeweltones #ravelry #BannerDay #cyborgscraftroom #impromptuDanceParty http://ift.tt/2r5cBXE

It's beginning to feel (and look) a lot like Summer ☀πŸ˜πŸ‘Memorial Day weekend, flowering bushes, and a linen short-sleeve top on my needles. Pattern:: Walkway by @norahgn from @quinceandco #FrameworkBook. I modified to be in the round rather than worked flat, and it is really flying without those purl-back rows. Yarn:: @knit_picks #LindyChain (linen cotton blend) in the Honey colorway http://ift.tt/2ra5SKe

The 'Thunder boom' colorway seemed like an apropos cast-on for a stormy weekend, though the blues and greens are much brighter than my current view out the window. As always, I am loving the Corriedale sock base from @dyeabolicalyarn, and mixing things up with an asymmetrical​ #ExpandingCommuKnitty (off- center spine/expanding point). #dailyKnitSocks #rainraingoaway http://ift.tt/2q7hgFv

Happy Mother's Day! Apparently a 'quick trip' today to #shepherdsharvest2017 didn't stop me from power shopping and buying all the things! Definitely sensing a bright color theme (tap for tags). http://ift.tt/2qkVFdt

If you had told @irocknits and I last year when we started our #Minnesota52 book journey that we would have the amazingly talented @galezucker as photographer, @twinsetellen tech editor and photo assistant extraordinare, and gorgeous smart and fun models @teamjoj @therealjchang @jessannward involved I would have laughed and laughed! Add in a unicycling sweater shot and I would have accused you of hallucinations! Today was a surreal and fabulous experience that I couldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams! Thanks to the talented and fabulous ladies that are helping make our dream of a knit wear book come true! #dontquityourdaydream @knitcahoots http://ift.tt/2pW1obh
