While the snow is melting, there is still a shortage of flowers in Roslyn, so I took a few minutes and made one of my own, using the Daisy Coasters pattern.

Also, save the date: Spring Girls' Night Out is April 13th. Details coming soon! learn

Back by popular demand, #yarnlovechallenge is daily photo challenge with yarn-themed prompts from Ravelry's Mary Heather and Christina. I didn't get in on the fun when it debuted in February, but I am excited to play along this time. Search the hashtag on Instagram, and my posts will be cross-posted to Yarn Folk's Facebook page, as well.


(Prompt for Day 1 was: Random Fact About me, and Day 2 was Squish. You can read all the prompts here.)

(Patterns shown are Brella's Intarsia Totoro Chart, and my Intermission cowl.) anticipate

Sirdar & Plymouth

Beyond Puerperium is a sweet baby sweater from Kelly van Niekerk. The shop sample is size 6-12 months and used one skein each of Sirdar Snuggly DK (the solid) and Crofter DK (the self-patterning lower section). Sirdar keeps their color selections fresh, so the exact combo I used is no longer available. Just for fun, I pulled out some other color pairings from the stock that arrived last week.

The shelves of Plymouth Encore are also full again, there's more Encore Mega, and I added colors of Homestead Tweed (which I used for the First Watch sweater).

Flip Stix

These colorful DPNs from Addi have one tapered tip, and one blunter one, giving you options  when deciding which is best for your project. It's like having the utility of two different sets of needles. For this test run, I ordered sizes US 0-4. stitch


That green marker marks the row I was about to rip back to. Far later than I would have liked, I realized that I'd missed an increase on one side of the front brioche sections, and it was something I definitely needed to correct. Wailing and gnashing of teeth ensued. You can see the pile of ripped yarn on my project page

Tashirojima Haori for Littles

I've started this Japanese-inspired cardigan sized for babies and children, using the budget-friendly Hayfield Baby Chunky. (It would also be lovely in Malabrigo Mecha.) I'm in the early stages, currently working the sleeves and upper bodice, which are knit side-to-side. Looking forward to the contiguous set-in pockets--it's always fun to try something new!

I have one more chart to work to complete Clue 2 of Romi Hill's Mystery Shawl 2017. If you'd like to see each step so far, hop on over to my project page. If you'd rather avoid spoilers, best stay away, as there are lots of progress photos!

Until next week!
