westknits mystery knitalong 2014

It's the first time ever that I'm participating not only in a knitalong but in a mystery one. I'm so excited! I'm a huge fan of Stephen West's designs and one of the recommended yarns for the knitalong is our own Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn.
How can I resist?
The first thing is to choose colours. Fun!
What you need is 3 colours that are of similar value and one contrast colour. I chose (left to right) Silence, Stone, Monarch (club colourway) and Graphite as my contrast colour.

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!

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?
