++ UPDATE Wow! Thanks for the amazing response everyone! Unless there's some amazingly fast knitters out there who can convince me otherwise, I think I'm set for test knitters for now! You all should be hearing from me soon. THANK YOU!!!! ++ Anyone looking for a great mitten pattern for Christmas this year? I hope to finally release my Snowcuff Chopper into the wild this winter, but am looking for people who would be willing to test the toddler, child, teen, women or men's sizes. If you're interested, send me an email through the link in my profile letting me know what size you'd be interested in knitting, and I should be getting in touch soon. Feel free to tag people you think may be interested, I'd sure love it!

Rhinebeck 2017! While we were out east, it was looking like we would have to return home a lot earlier than expected, but Doug was able to find what felt like the ONLY remaining house rental anywhere close to the New York Sheep And Wool Festival, so we headed upstate! We had such a great time and I feel so happy to have experienced it. I was so thankful I had brought my Holiday Tee by @eritml knit with @thefarmersdaughterfibers along on the trip because it ended up making the perfect Rhinebeck sweater for this pretty hot year. I also wore my#farmhousecardigan by @savoryknitting on Sunday and my #verticesunite by @westknits (details of the yarn used months back in my feed) all weekend long. I think my favorite part of the whole weekend was seeing so many familiar faces and meeting and talking to @michele_nyc @sandyran @thefatsqrrl @legacyfiberartz @knit1chgo @allysondykhuizen @jgoerold @saltairarts and a couple kind others. Since we were headed home right after the festival and had been on the road for almost a month, I had just enough luggage space for a sweater's quantity of @peace_fleece and some amazing machine knitting wool. What a great weekend! 🐑🐑🐑

While we were traveling last month, I somehow finished my Ninilchik Swoncho by @boylandknitworks despite the complete insanity! I had the goal to finish it in case I was able to make it to Rhinebeck, but my daughter actually wore it for the festival on Sunday since it looked great on her and she could tolerate the long sleeves in that heat (kind of crazy and kind of amazing when your kids get big enough to swap clothes with you... especially on long trips!). I one hundred percent copied @porcupinestitches beautiful color choices, but used @berrocoyarn Remix Light yarn instead. You're going to want to check out her version in a gorgeous mixture of dk wools. It looks so cozy!

I just finished my October socks and I'm pretty pumped for two reasons - considering the circumstances, finishing these two days late was pretty dang good, and this cashmere yarn is out of this world! I was so thrilled to attend #needlesup the Friday before Rhinebeck, and had been itching to buy a skein of @legacyfiberartz yarn for socks after finishing my travel knitting a week earlier. The event itself was so much fun, but seeing the incredible wall of Sue and Chelsea's beautiful yarn had me standing there dumbfounded for quite a while. I gravitated towards this "Parchment" colorway right away, but it wasn't until my shopping buddy said "Mom, get that one. It reminds me of where we just were and the grey cottages next to the blue ocean" that I was 100% sure they would make the perfect October socks. And coming home to a winter wonderland seems fitting, too! I am very pleased with the fit of these socks which has been fine tuned over this year. I made up the garter pattern as I went, but I'm pretty sure I was inspired by a pair of baby socks I vaguely remember making years ago. And speaking of knitting, how beautiful is this guernsey scarf I'm using as a table runner made by @rehugg ?

I have a lot of catching up to do on here, but I thought I'd get the ball rolling by sharing my September socks. You know the spiel, nothing fancy or different on these ones. Except for the sock blocker I made out of a ritz cracker box to photograph these while on the road last month, that's definitely fancy. I'm too lazy to find the yarn label, but I do know they're from one of the @arnecarlos lines by Regia. They were finished one day late, and it's looking like my October socks are going to be the same deal. You guys, it's been quite the month.

I finished Holiday by @eritml in this beautiful @thefarmersdaughterfibers yarn in the color Winter Wolf, and now I'm ready to turn right back around and make another. This is one of those patterns that's simple in all the right ways and the fit is really gooooood. This yarn was a perfect choice for it, too. Two skeins were just enough to make it short sleeved, which I wasn't sure about, but turns out I absolutely love. Too bad that just the day after finishing it, it dropped forty degrees! Hej då summer, I'll be waiting patiently to greet you wearing the best summer sweater!

A beautiful package I ordered from @nastiasleptsova came on one of the hardest days this week. The way everything was so perfectly wrapped made it such a treat to open!

My August socks are waaaay good! This yarn was given to me by a friend which makes them extra special. The label has gone missing, so the dyer and colorway remain a mystery. That's probably good or I'd be ordering more immediately! 💙

Farm House Cardigan by Amy Christoffers, this time knit with Hikoo Rylie yarn, an alpaca/linen/silk blend. I absolutely love it! Details on my last post.

When you know you love a pattern, why not knit it again? Another Farm House Cardigan by Amy Christoffers, this time knit with Hikoo Rylie yarn, an alpaca/linen/silk blend. I had originally used this yarn to knit the Sleeper Car Jacket a couple summers back, but I think I should have knit it one size larger since it kept pulling and slipping off my shoulders. Frogging that cardigan was crazy, I had to just kind of charge ahead and not think about it! Being able to repurpose this yarn was so much fun and totally worth it though. Rylie is a sport weight yarn, so I had to gauge and decide which needle size I liked the best (I ended up going with a US 7), then I picked a body size based on the gauge I was getting (size 47 I think). I started with the sleeves and ended up having to reknit them a couple times to get them just right. I eventually decided this yarn demanded I use a tubular cast on so that there would be some stretch at the wrists and waist. I'm so happy with the fit of this sweater, and the lighter weight and softness makes it perfect for summer and travel.

Brynja sweater by Linda Lencovic, knit out of Plymouth Homestead with Himalaya Tibet yarn on the pockets. I modified the pattern and continued the cable panel up and around the neck. This sweater will be awesome for fall.
