While no excuse is needed, today I am coloring because my leggings made me do it! Doesn't this #sweetlegs print/motif just beg to be colored in? #SundayCraftingFunday #owlAlwaysLoveYou #KnitCahootsOnTheBrain #coloringbook http://ift.tt/2kCkUVr

These greens have been making eyes at me 😍 and singing the sweet siren song of "cast-on, cast-on, cast-on" ever since they arrived from @infinitetwist.💚💚 Today I obliged! I love the unique and simple to knit construction of the #GradientAnglesShawl by @twinsetjan and am trying to decide if I want to make the 2nd wing match or improv some stripes. #knitAndEatYourGreens #infiniteTwist #twinSetDesigns #ravelry #yarnSwoon #knittersofIG http://ift.tt/2jC8MFv

It would seem that recovering from surgery has left me with just enough brain space and energy to knit socks. #skewSocks are stuck on repeat, and I am making Ellie matching rollers with the leftovers. Yarn is @spinningfates @716knit and @wskmontana I caked up the Choco Rainbow #WesternSkyKnits for the @suburbanstitcher #rainbowalong but couldn't help myself from casting on and knitting it up before the KAL began. 😂 #knittingBrightensMyDay #handknitsocks #selfstripingsockyarn #ravelry #knittersofInstagram http://ift.tt/2kCxsPY

I got tired of my husband scolding me for picking out the cashews and hazelnuts from the standard nut mix, so I headed to #TraderJoes and bought only what I wanted to make my own mix. The Megan Mix (as it's known in my house) is raw cashews, hazelnuts, and orange flavored dried cranberries. What would be in your mix? #justMix #yummmmmm #nutsForNuts http://ift.tt/2kltB5q

This beautiful smile brought to you by 2 pair of new #handknitSocks! She really does love the socks I knit her. 😁😍💞 Leftover yarn from my socks aren't quite enough for her shorties anymore, so I am doing coordinating heels and toes. #hugsAndSmilesForSocks #SundaySockFunday #ravelry #knittinglove http://ift.tt/2jNUTEw

Walking and knitting a few rounds today at the indoor track; slowly making my way back to normal 👟 😁👍 Yet another pair of #skewSocks made it on my needles with a OOAK self-striping colorway from @716knit. I would name it: Zombie cupcake with sprinkles! #justWalkKnitForNow #walkKnit #handknitsocks #selfstripingsockyarn #yarnSwoon #knittymag #ravelry #knittersofIG http://ift.tt/2iKZo3A

R&R&K: Rest, relaxation, and knits. Recovering means lots of Chaz cuddles 😻 (my very own therapy cat) under a knit blanket, wearing comfy knit-print @sweetlegs, and a few rounds of knitting on a hat for Dex. @threeirishgirlsyarn yarn in the Northshore colorway from #yarnharborduluth. #sleepKnitRepeat #knittersofinstagram #ravelry http://ift.tt/2jR2Yp4

Thank you to everyone for their kindness, well wishes, and prayers. 💞🙏 After struggling with lots of pain post-op, I am now home from the hospital, resting and recovering. Knowing I have my knitting friends rooting for me has helped so much! Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you to everyone! #knittersarethebestpeople #flowerstobrightenmyday http://ift.tt/2ipal5T

On the final few rows of the last color of my #findyourfadeshawl and it doesn't quite all fit into the picture anymore! I can't wait to wear this large, smooshy, colorful, warm hug of a shawl! The deep pink reads red in the photo, but it is really striking in real life. #ravelry #knittersofInstagram #bigShawlLove #findyourfadekal http://ift.tt/2jfWz7f
