Off the Needles
 
Aunt Florence shawl. Got to half way point during 3/13 noreaster. 
  • Needles: US 6
  • Yarn: Invictus Yarn Beyond XL in the Colorway Believe 150g skein- 600 yards

  • Still looking for test knitters. Very loose timeline for this one. Would love to see how it works with handspun since it can be done based on weight instead of yards.

Slay the Stash 2018
  • Each month you can declare a skein of yarn to knit/crochet/weave to its very end. Let’s use up those older special skeins that are soooo pretty we don’t want to touch them. In 2018, we are turning those sacred skeins into beautiful projects you can enjoy-- and maybe win a new beautiful skein of yarn from one of our sponsors along the way! Full details and rules can be found here.
