Surmount the Stash 2013 May update

Volume 2 now on sale!

  • Gentleman's Socks for Evening Wear were knit and then ripped out - should that count as "accomplished"? 
  • Another pair of socks - Gentleman's Plain Winter Socks - have been knit from scraps, but more on that on Friday. 
  • All the acrylic baby yarn is finished; there is a small pile of hats for my SIL who works in labour and delivery. 
  • All the hexagons for my African Flower blanket are done, with ends woven end but I still need to buy yarn for the borders and joining.
  • I did start and finish Ensnared Socks and they are gorgeous, even if they are too small.
  • Shark Week Socks have been started (and I've only had to rip back once). 
  • My weaving project is still sitting on the loom awaiting my attention. Maybe this weekend?
April was busy - at work and with personal design projects. The artist's portfolio book was printed and delivered in time for the gala reception held by my sister on the first of May, although I was hand-collating the night before! And my brother's second volume of short stories, Abigail Massey at McAdam Train Station Volume 2, was launched at a very successful event at the McAdam train station last Sunday. And finally I was able to deliver my secret Christmas 2012 knitting .... Star Trek socks for my brother and SIL, which were very well received!

goals for May:
  • finish one pair of Shark Week Socks for Robin
  • knit Summer Flies from 2 skeins of Shelridge Farm Soft Touch DK
  • knit Cladonia from 2 skeins of Wellington Fibres 3 ply (that I WON in the raffle at the Frolic!)
  • knit Totally Vanilla Socks for a Socktopus KAL that I rashly joined.

Your ohana is full of creative juices! What an exciting time for you all! Super sweet of you to hand-collate coming from someone who Xeroxes a lot for the teachers.
The STar Trek socks rock. And mahalo for asking about the new link. I will definitely post it once I have everything in order.
