The first 100 shoppers will receive a goody bag filled with gifts and offers from our vendors and sponsors. For more information and a full list of vendors, visit Indie Untangled.On the NeedlesAlmost done with the body of Hinoki - I am debating on whether to do waist increases later on down in the sweater, or incorporate that into the raglan yoke, or to do it right after I separate the sleeves. I intend to wear this sweater with a shirt layered underneath, and I like a loose, but tailored fit. I do not really like overly fitted sweaters (which I why I do not wear Cadence too much), so I might go with the last option so that the underarms aren't so baggy. Frannie Cowl with Pepperberry Knits - nice and simple. Knitting it in the Long Johns Colorway. Knitting FindsErin Lane is starting her own fabric line! Check it out and support it here. There is a new knitting pattern collaboration and KAL between Andrea Mowry and Lesley Anne Robinson called Knit in Color. I love the patterns from both of these designers. Mingo and Asho make gorgeous supported spindles with glass bottoms. Pins and NeedlesNo spinning done for Tour de Fleece - been distracted by sewing! Completed the Colette Sorbetto top and Sailor Top with help from the Fancy Tiger Crafts class. I'm trying to make 3 versions of the Scout Tee by Grainline Studios and finish my dress from my Mood Class (McCall's 6124) as well as make another Dress (Simplicity 1880) and Pajamas (New Look 6859).Bias Tape is from So Biased.Knitting TravelsJackalope Art Fair and met with The Lemonade Shop, Sleep Season and Knerd Yarns!
