Getting fresh

Summer is here and I'm inspired to freshen things up! Our CSA started a couple weeks ago so I'm happily enjoying fresh fruits and veggies. This is my favorite time of year for food and I'll share more on our CSA in another post, just know that it is fabulous! I do have a few things on the needles - shocking, I know - but a project has freshly come off the needles...


This last Sunday, hubby and I enjoyed breakfast and coffee at our favorite coffee shop while I knitted on my Cap Sleeve Lattice Top. I'm happy to share that it went into the bath on Monday night and as of this morning, it's dry! This was part of a KAL that I joined in May (I think), but I missed the deadline and I'm okay with that. I'm hoping for a Friday morning open knitting debut at the shop and I'll post the full details and photos soon.

So, now I only have 3 sweaters on the needles:

  • one is in a time out
  • another is a secret *muahahaha*
  • the last is for the Beginning Sweater Workshop at Firefly Fibers.


Our class is getting a fresh new shop sample with Lamb's Pride Worsted by Brown Sheep - the yarn is new to the shop and it's a great fit for the upcoming class! This sweater class has it all and I'm really excited to create some new sweater monsters - umm, I mean knitters - this fall!

My knitting bag also contains the next Knitalong, my hexipuff pouch for my Beekeeper's Quilt and the Forest Floor hat from Botanical Knits for a shop sample. This almost seems too manageable, maybe I need to cast on a new project?
