Fiber Friday | 7.13.18

By the time you read this, Steve will be off to his work weekend extravaganza and I will be ensconced on the sofa attacking Day 4 of the Beekeeper Cardigan Knit Along. I have roughly 5 inches to go and then the ribbing of the body as per the pattern…BUT!!! I have seen some really awesome cropped models of the Beekeeper (especially like this one) and I am contemplating doing something similar. I love the idea of making my new tunics multi-seasonal by adding a layer. Although, I think I’d like the sleeves a little bit longer. What are your thoughts?

We had a Thursday night happy hour to make up for Steve missing tonight and I made a cocktail that was really incredibly delicious! It is from Ming Tsai’s Simply Ming Show. I made the cocktail exactly as written with Thai Basil from my garden and with Bombay Sapphire East Gin. Oh.my.gosh… it was so good! If you are looking for something different to sip, I highly recommend it!

If you are knitting KK’s MKAL, clue 4 is out today! I managed to get through clue 2 and started on clue 3 last night, but I was having trouble remembering the k3tog and the sk2p, so after tinking back a row, I set it aside last night. Apparently, I need to either mark the pattern to remember or get more sleep than I have this week.

The links were slim this week, but I did manage to find some things of controversy (of course) and interest to add in to the knitting links!

This Rolling Stone article on ICE is deeply troubling.

This is beautifully done… and powerful.

The knitting community is not without controversy, sadly. I knew of a bit of an uproar over BT which is why I did not post links to their latest collection. I would like to think that this community is better than this, but apparently not.

Did you see Dot? I loved it and especially appreciated how they made Dot!

Now for some actual knitting links!

I love Black Coast (and Holst Garn is a LOVELY place to order from!)

And, finally Nacre

That’s all I have for this week! Have a great weekend and I will see you back here on Monday!
