Love is in the air!
Good morning and happy Friday,
We hope you have all had a good week, and a good January. Can you believe it's already February 1st? Guess what that means...................it means it's time to cast on to those socks or legwarmers!!! But more on that later.
In knitting news this week, Sarah and I have some finished objects to share. First we are excited to report that Sarah finished this beautiful test knit for the lovely Laura Linneman aka Lala on Ravelry. She used the Punk Rock and A Little Bit of Rhythm colourways. I give her 8 fingers and 2 thumbs up!!! I think it turned out beautifully!!! Now I think she needs to make me one. Once the pattern becomes available we will let you guys know so that if you would like to make one you can do so!
She also cast on to this adorable Newborn Vertebra by Kelly Brooker, for a friends baby shower. Super cute!
For me as many of you know I finished my Little Stargazer hat for the Halos of Hope foundation. I really like the way it turned out.
I also cast on to the Flower Moon shawl and I am really pleased with my progress so far.
In non knitting news this week, I am super excited to share that we moved my son into his new room, which he is sharing with my middle daughter. He slept in there for the first time last night and once he fell asleep he actually stayed all night!!!! Hopefully we will have continued success in the nights to come.
Okay in "Out of this World" KAL news, we first want to congratulate everyone that completed the January "Put your HANDS up for knitters in Space" challenge. You all did an awesome job and everyone's FO's look great!!
The January FO thread has officially been locked and we are moving on to February's "Knitters WALK on the Moon" challenge. We are so excited to see what you all knit this month. There have been some awesome sock pattern ideas shared!
Since it's Friday we have a new extra credit challenge!! This one is all about the spirit of community and getting to know each other a little more. So with that said we want you to send a PM to another member in the group that is participating in the "Out of this World" KAL, and get their address (if they are willing to share it) so that you can send them a Valentine. Once you have a Valentine ready to send please take a picture of it and upload that picture in the extra credit thread. We also want you to take it a step further, if you are the recipient of a Valentine we would like you to say thank you to the sender in the "Out of this World" chatter thread. So go and share some "Out of this World" love!!!
Lastly just a quick reminder that the new collection will be going up in the shop on Monday February 4th. Can you feel the love? We sure can!!!
Well that about covers all of our news for this week. Hope everyone has a nice weekend, we look forward to the pictures and chatter about socks, slippers, legwarmers for humans and dogs alike, and all the wonderful Valentines!!
Talk to you next week!
