What I’m wearing
Feel the Bern by Caitlin Hunter – a free pattern on Ravelry. I made mine in sports-weight, so had to go up 2 sizes. The yarns are all scraps of my own hand dyed yarn.
Sweater for John-John with Estonian Braids on the yoke. I will write up a pattern, but it will take some time. It is knit in Drops Lima, color 9015 for the yoke and arms, and color 0519 for the body.
A sweater to match John’s, made in Peter’s size. It’s a monster of a sweater, but I will finish it!
A new design; a hap shawl, knit in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, the Mink Heather color.
And a new Half & Half Wrap from Purl Soho because I need one in lighter colors for summer! The first half will be Knit Picks Palette in the Blush color, and the second half will be my own Salt & Peber – one of my undyed bases.
The Solitude Blanket from ChiWei Ranck
Knitalong and more
I hope you will join me for a #KnitAndBeKindKAL. Let’s focus on kindness in our knitting, whether it is by knitting an unexpected gift for someone, by treating yourself to a new cast-on, by using your knitting-practice to cultivate kindness, or something else entirely.

On April 21st I will draw the first winner and send out one of the prices for them – and we will continue the KAL for one more month!
