Toronto’s knitter’s frolic! 

I made it!  Despite spending the weekend at a dance competition in Hamilton with my girl, she and I made a quick trip to the frolic to gorge ourselves on the yarn fumes.  I’m raising her right ;). ….although all the attention she got because of her medal and stage makeup sure helped her love of wool festivals! Haha! 

She also scored some new sock wool, I looooove turtlepurl yarns self-stripping socks.  Just glorious 

This one’s called city girl

 

Somehow, and I still have no freaking clue how, my girl convinced me her American girl doll needed a hand knit sweater…made out of merino and silk!  

I don’t even have a merino/silk sweater!  Best dressed doll in Canada :/

  

Also scored some beautiful silk/merino for myself.  A new-to-me indie dyer as well, raventwist.  Because I was damned if the doll would get more wool than me! 

  

In my dye pots, I’ve had a big hit with my Sick monkey self-stripping sock wool..

 

You guys have snapped up all the ones I’ve made and I’m busy dyeing more every day!  Ya’ll bought so much I had to order more wool, lol!  My hubby fell in love with it too, I actually finished his first dock and am on to his second!  SSS has hit though, I’m having problems staying motivated…like usual! 

I’m still working on my watermelon shawl (not surprised…) and an alpaca cowl which is pretty much going to hibernate until fall now that I’m back in maxi dresses!  

What are you working on?
