how to pack your knitting for a vacation

I'm going for two weeks and weight is an issue, as we'll be doing a fair bit of travelling around. However, I couldn't possibly leave my knitting behind!

lucidity

Our newest free pattern! Lucidity is a square shawl knitted in the round or a triangle shawl knitted flat. Both options are included in the pattern. The shawls are both quite large, but can be easily adjusted by making fewer (or more!) repeats.

vestigial socks, version 2

Now that I'm done with the baby knitting, I got to cast on for a pair of Vestigial socks in a Twist club colourway - Nemesis (June 2014). The clubs will be opening soon, next week. I'm loving the colours (the more crazy the sock yarn is, the better!) It's working really well with the pattern.

On a different note, would you like to see what arrived in the mail the other day?

baby gifts

Aww such tiny things! Just look at those little socks! I made a little knitted gift set for the little boy who wasn't born yet (I like to call him baby Kanye, but the parents don't like that as much as I do, hehehe) The cardigan is Bilbo Cardigan by Cirilia Rose, I used HF Merino Aran in a potluck colourway (similar one would be 'Glacier'). The only modification I made, is that I made it significantly longer.
