The weather turned cool and rainy, so I was able to get more knitting time in than last week
Surprise!! Granny Square Blanket - taking this out of neutral to crochet the remaining 122 squares during the summer. Fingers crossed that I can get it finished in time for our anniversary at the end of September!
Review of Socktopus by Alice Yu. Thank you to the folks at Taunton Press for sending a copy for me to review. As a side note - Taunton Press is based here in my hometown of Newtown, CT!
Socktopus is available at your local yarn shop, bookstore, or on Amazon.
Hop on the Party Bus - Pre-Ravelympics Finish-along
For those who need a little boost to get some WIPs finished before the Ravelympics begin at the end of July. Join us over on the Commuter Knitter Podcast Ravelry group. Each FO posted in the FO thread before July 15th will be eligible for the prize drawing. Prizes TBD.
Note - you do not have to participate in the Ravelympics in order to be in the finish-along - it is open to anyone who needs a little boost to get the WIPS finished :-)
If you're looking for a Ravelympics Team (or if you are a spinner and are looking for a Tour de Fleece Team) come join Team Sasquatch - a large group of podcasters and podcast fans. Lots of fun!!
We passed 200 members in the Ravelry group! To commemorate the milestone, I decided to have a surprise giveaway!
