Socks: Two at a Time!

Quince, Must Stash Yarn

I’ve finished my Birds of a Feather Shawl (pictures soon!) and I needed a small project to take a break from big projects. I decided to learn something I’ve really wanted to be able to do and that’s knitting socks two at a time via magic loop.

I watched some videos online to get me started and I’m doing pretty good so far, I’ve only had a couple “oh shit” moments! And of course this yarn from Must Stash Yarn is just to die for.

Hedgehog Fibres Tweedy

My skein of HHF Tweedy arrived in the mail today. I love the concept of this yarn, it’s 50% Falkland merino wool, 37.5% recycled wool, and 12.5% HHF thread waste.

It’s very soft and it’s fun to see the bits of waste thread in there that makes it a tweed. I think I’ll probably knit a hat with this, maybe held double with some mohair to have a marled tweed aesthetic.

Just Keep Knitting

Birds of a Feather, Andrea Mowry

I’m starting to get into the last part of my Birds of a Feather shawl! This is the second one I’ve knit as I adore the pattern and it’s the perfect weight for So Cal. Yarn is by Long Dog Yarn and Autumn and Indigo.

But I’ve got an exciting project I want to start ASAP and I’m forcing myself to finish this first!

Pizza Port California Honey

And for the pints part of Pints and Purls here is a solid San Diego beer choice. Super chill and slightly sweet California Honey from Pizza Port. The perfect smooth and refreshing summer beer choice.

Yum!
