I did a Video Knit Night! I met Andrea of The CATT Lady Podcast, Sue from Two Tangled Skeins (who kindly mentioned me in episode 119), and Amanda from Stitching Ewe & More Podcast. (I also met Sarah of The Canadian Knitter Podcast, but totally blanked on her name during the episode.)
Thanks for the mention in episode 16, CutseyPu Creations!
Knit Picks: Felici in Glacier, Baker Street & Mosaic. Chroma Fingering in New Leaf. Chart keeper.
My husband shrank (shrunk?) one of my alpaca-blend socks (just one!!!), so I got to go to my LYS and got some Chiagoo needles size US 0, Louet Euroflax Linen in Seafoam Green, and Regia 8-Fadig in 08992.

Tour de Fleece:
Contented Butterfly Farm drop spindle & Fiber Stash Polwarth (I joined the Support Spindlers team & there is an unofficial team in my Ravelry group. I watched a video by Paradise Fibers and learned about parking in your armpit = genius! #teamuctdf
Russian support spindle & Contented Butterfly Farm Wee Beastie Batt (60% wool, 30% mohair, 10% silk)
I bought a zip-tie container and am using that as a storage case. I also bought a smaller bowl at Big Lots. Spinning my singles counter-clockwise. I watched some of Drafting: The Long & Short of It, which is helping with long-draw, but I keep pulling the different fibers away from each other.
I sent Lion Brand Magic Stripes, Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball, Dream in Color Smooshy, Red Heart Heart & Sole, Fiber Stash Twinkle Toes, as well as some Stash Chocolate Mint Tea and some stitch markers I made (yes, the return of Extra Credit!) using PDXKnitterati’s tutorial.
She sent me a lovely swap package with more yarn than she should have, including some extras she got from the Sock Yarn Minis/Scraps Swapping Facebook group. She also sent me an adorable notions bag!
