More stripey socks

I finished these socks March 29! I knit this pair on US1s, and I really like the resulting fabric.  These socks have been worn a few times already. This is my third pair of socks, third pair knit two-at-a-time, third pair self-striping, second pair toe-up. I think I’m sensing a pattern. I love a good sock pattern and they are interesting, but lately, these plain vanillas are so perfect! I don’t know that I ever actually linked to it, but the motivation for me and these socks this year is due to Kate, of the Stitch Addiction podcast. I’ve followed her blog for a while and was excited to see she started a podcast. I really enjoy it! I’m a few episodes behind, but hoping to catch up this weekend. What are you up to?

On a limb

I thought that once March wrapped up, we might be able to start April off on the right foot. Well, I may as well have started April off with a visit to the Ministry of Silly Walks because holy chickens, it has been a whirlwind of activity and not all of it is great. You’re here for the fiber projects, and what I have to share today is part of a new HeartCat. This one is a birthday present that I think might be a belated gift by the time it is done, but I will pres on. In the photo you can see one arm of the HeartCat, my painted fingernails (such a rarity, but a fun distraction), and my new specially commissioned project bag! Amanda, of SewKnitPicky and Knot a Podcast was so great to work with me for this bag. I love it! Little kitties and a heart zipper pull – perfect, as this bag is intended for HeartCat projects.
