Contiguous It Is!

2 Comments

I started the pattern Driftwood last night, I couldn’t pass up the chance to try a new technique! I really like how the contiguous sleeves look and a set-in sleeve is more flattering for me.

My handspun is a bit heavier than the madtosh dk and dk twist but I think it will all work out in the end.

I also had some crafting time today. Knitting and beer, mmmmm.

What’s the most recent technique you learned? Hope you’re enjoying the lovely weather we’re having this weekend!

I haven’t been doing much crafting besides spinning lately. I was on a tear and weaving everything I could get my hands on, but it seems I need a little break from that. I did finish 1/2 of a pair of gorgeous knee socks at the beach a few weeks ago.

Knee Sock #1

So lots and lots of yarns coming off of the wheel lately.

I’ve also been working in the garden a bit, it’s still dark and wet here so I can’t plant the good stuff just yet. It rained today and hasn’t been hot enough for tomatoes and that’s really the only plant I care about over the summer.

How are your gardens coming?
