Year of Handmade: Prompt 4 and a Late FO Friday Post.

Ok, I know I'm behind on some posts, so lets start with the 4th prompt of the Year of Handmade.

4. Dream craft products to use.

Well, there is a lot of them. I guess with yarn it would be MadTosh, since I heard nothing but good things about it from everyone I want to try it. I really want some Knit Picks Caspian needles and Knitter's Pride Marbles needles, they look so pretty! 
And the last one is........a spinning wheel, a Ladybug would be my choice but right now I would be happy with anything. I just want to spin on a wheel. Don't get me wrong, I love my drop spindles, but I really want a wheel.

And now my FO for this week!

My mom's socks are finally finished, and hopefully they will fit her. Now to work on her's and my sister's birthday presents before I get the package mailed out.

Happy Knitting!

FO Friday: Spun Right Round

So it's not the socks that are finished, sadly, but I did wind off some of my bamboo yarn that I had spun out of Spun Right Round's Bamboo fiber in Egyptian Red.

It's not all the fiber, it's just a little bit of what I got off my spindle yesterday. It's been soaked and measured , and it's dry this morning. So far about 78 yards of this single and I'm already ready to knit with it. But I'm trying to be good.

Happy Spinning!

WIP Wednesday: Business Casual Socks

Hopefully I can keep up the habit of finishing my WIPs that I blog about on here on Wednesday in time for FO Friday this week. This project is long over due to be finished but I'm loving knitting on it.

Project name: Business Casual Socks by Tanis Lavallee
Yarn: Patons Kroy Socks in the Rusty Stripes colorway.
Needles: US 3 (3,25mm)

These are a late, late, LATE Christmas present for my mom. I'm really loving how these are knitting up, I'm trying to be a good daughter and not keep them from my self. I hope you're having a great week so far!

Happy Knitting!

Year of Handmade: Prompt 3

3. Favorite craft products that you often use?

I don't really have too many favorites that I use. I just have basic Clover bamboo needles and Boye Metal needles, but I have one pair of Knitter's Pride wooden needles that I really like.
I love the stitch markers that I got from Winemakerssister's Esty store, they are amazing.
And I use my measuring tape that I had gotten from my mom to measure my projects. 
I would like to be able to use more craft products in the future when I have the money to invest in them. :)

Happy Crafting!

And I'm Back! (Memory Monday)

Sorry for the week of silence. I didn't have internet and was super busy with some life changes and work. But I'm back! I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. :)


Have a great week!
