I love love LOVE getting pictures of my handknits in use, don’t you?
I just got this one the other day of my nephew and his momma both wearing hat’s I’ve made for them:
Jedis have mommies too
In the mean time, I’ve been working really hard getting things ready for my show and I apologize for the lack of posts! Pictures and stories to come, I promise!
what are you working on this season?
Welcome to another week! I hope you’re all staying warm (the high here today is 12! winter has arrived) and looking forward to the week. My weekend was super full and I expect the week to be the same, mostly working and preparing for my show on Saturday! I hope you all will come out and say hi if you’re able

I realize I discussed Bittersweet yesterday, but today it’s about the plain milk chocolate. When not being mixed into baked (coughshouldbebakedcough) goods, milk chocolate is at it’s best.
Today’s FO is a plain and simple pair of cozy chocolate colored socks (Raveled Here) knit as a custom order for a friend’s Christmas present to her sister.
Smooth and Rich
I knit them on size US 2 needles with Sirdar Snuggly and used about a ball and a half to make both socks. Next time I shall make them toe-up so that I can get the most use out of the skeins and longer socks, but ultimately, I am quite pleased with how these turned out.
Perfectly Simple and Satisfying

When I make chocolate chip cookie dough (it really hardly ever makes it to baked-cookie phase) I always prefer using bittersweet chocolate morsels to milk chocolate but today’s post isn’t about food. It’s about a different kind of sweet. The kind of sweet that only a shiny silk merino blend can satiate.
That's the kind of sweet I want to sink my teeth into
Tina of Bittersweet Woolery and I have been chatting for a bit about doing a collaboration together. Her yarn + My Design = awesome lace knitting for you!
I want to swim in merino silk and shiny
The other day I received two skeins of her Star Dust Lace yarn in the most beautiful, shimmery watery aqua color and I think it will go perfectly into the design we’ve discussed and collaborated on.

Have you worked with Bittersweet Woolery’s yarns yet? I want to see what you’ve made! And if you haven’t, I really quite highly suggest trying some for yourself, the woman behind the magic is just as sweet as the yarns she creates and she’s a pleasure to work with. Find her on Ravelry and don’t forget to read her blog!
