Fluffy Fibers: Episode 23

 

 

I seem to have been knitting lots of tubes lately! And have been keeping happy with small projects.

I am FluffyFibers on Ravelry and the podcast has a Ravelry group and forum.

Thanks to Kristin and Dani for mentioning me on their podcasts! 

1. MY CUP OF TEA
A green organic Earl Grey, by Les Jardins de Gaia. 

2. WHAT I’M WEARING
I am wearing my Lala’s Simple Shawl out of Katia Sulka, layered over my red Moneta Dress by Colette Patterns.

3. TEA SWAP
Brilliantly imagined and organized by knittinluv on Ravelry. Sign-ups until February 11 (NOT 15 as said in the podcast!).
Send a minimum of 6 tea bags (can be loose tea that you package in tea bags), along with a little handcrafted tea-related item, and a note explaining your own little tea idiosyncrasies.
All the details have been posted in the ravelry group, and we have started a chat thread. We have also set up a small Pinterest board as inspiration for handcrafted gifties.

4. A BIT OF SEWING

 I made Simplicity 2946 out of a floral corduroy to make birthday dresses for my daughter and her doll.

 

5. A BIT OF KNITTING 

 

5.a Finished
Legwarmers out of Adriafil Knitcol in the Beethoveen (62) colourway.
Socks for me out of Adriagil Knitcol in the Boccioni (66) colourway.

I mention West Yorkshire Spinners, especially their Country Birds collection in fingering and DK weight. I am also quite enamoured with their Pennyroyal colourway in sock yarn.

5.b In Progress

– Lenny by Heidi Atwood-Reeves for my daughter, out of Countess Ablaze BFL Aran in Radioactive Raspberry.
– Curly Snake from Susan B Anderson’s Itty Bitty Toys. Knit out Crystal Palace Yarns Mini Mochi in colour #106. Yarn was bought from Annette Petavy, who hosts one of my favourite podcasts (in French), Mon crochet et moi.
I cast this on as part of the Little Along hosted by Dani of Little Bobbins Knits.

5.c Future Projects

– Cardigan for both me and my daughter, out of the Surnaturelle yarn that I got from La Droguerie for Christmas. My cardigan is going to be Alecia Beth by Justyna Lorkowska.
– socks for Seb out of Online Supersocke 4-fach, in the shade 1530.

6. A BIT OF SPINNING 

– I just finished spinning and plying a Juno Fibre Arts braid named Wishing Tree: 70% BFL- 30% Sparkle.I’m going to knit it into a Stretcher Quaker Boomerang by Susan Ashcroft.

– My daughter spun on her merino fibre, which she intends to knit into a hat!
