This is my first post of 2017, and I am looking forward to sharing another year of knitting adventures – albeit on a more frequent basis 🙂
I’ve started off the year visiting some new knitting stores – Nancy’s in North Conway NH and Trailside Yarn Shoppe in Kensington PE. Both were excellent establishments with great variety. Especially sock yarns!
I’m back teaching at City Centre School this winter, and I am proud to say that I have met a personal goal of mine by doing so. I’m teaching my students how to make a basic cuff down sock with a heel. I decided at the very last minute to offer this class, and I am so glad that I did. My students are progressing so well with their projects. I look forward to seeing them every week. I’m also very excited because my mom, who is an AMAZING knitter, is helping Fme out with the class. I’m knitting along with the group using Lane Cervinia ‘Forever’ sock yarn from Italy that I bought from Nancy’s.
I just finished making the Briggs and Little Heavy Socks pattern for my husband using beautiful wool from MacAusland’s Woolen Mill (right here on PEI). I went with a 9 inch cuff instead of the 11 inch, and the socks took 3 skeins. Great for our many winter adventures.
I’m planning on taking a break from socks once I have finished the ones I am working on with my class. I think I’m going to treat myself and make the Azul pullover for me!
Well friends, I’m going to try my best for 2017 to post more often and include pictures of my projects. Let’s keep the adventures going – share with me what you’re working on!
