Saturday was the 3rd year in a row I participated in the TTC Knitalong, which was a blast. I was attempting to do more live tweeting, so I didn’t actually take any photos during the event that weren’t cell phone photos! But here is Team Purple at Americo (sorry for the grainy cell snap):
It was a very fun day indeed! I was pretty restrained, since my stash is already a huge storage problem to begin with, but I couldn’t resist taking home these goodies:
I was feeling salmon-y pinks that day, I think! And I also scored a Gleaner, which I was pretty excited about.
My take along knitting for this fun day was a very simple pattern made from this amazing, gorgeous handspun:
The roving is from Pidgeonroof studios, and was spun and plied by Tanis . As soon as I saw it, I couldn’t wait to knit something up- it’s so deliciously soft and cozy. Not that I need that right now in July, but that’s how amazing this yarn is- I couldn’t wait for chilly weather. FO photos coming very soon!
To conclude today’s post, here is a photo of Gatsby hiding under the barbecue:
So fluffy. And he’s trying to stay out the sun to cool off, poor thing.
