Rainbow Sprinkles

A few days ago, I hand-painted this yarn for a custom order. This is my made to order “Rainbow Sprinkles” colorway on my sock base Footsie which is 80% SW Merino and 20% Nylon, 410 yds. It took everything I had not to keep this yarn and dye up another one for the order… lol.  Needless to…

Featherweight Cardigan

One of my goals this year is to make myself a sweater. Some of you may be scratching your head as to why I don’t own a hand knit sweater knit by myself. I’ve knit sweaters, however, just never for me- mostly as baby gifts and the latest one for my son. Now I know…
