Sunday Craft Update -- March 28

Every Christmas, Laura and I do a sock-yarn exchange. This year, she gave me a skein of hand-dyed Indigo Moon merino wool in this crazy and wonderful colourway. I decided to go for a hat instead of socks this year, and it took me some time to finish, given that the yarn was fingering weight. However, I made it in time to wear for one of the last cold spells of the season.

Sunday Craft Update -- March 7

It's been months since the last Sunday Craft Update, but I've not been completely idle. Here is Kate's afghan, knitted according to specs (her specs, of course). I didn't bother writing up the instructions as it's a basic feather-and-fin pattern with random stripes. The yarn is from the gigantic stash of discounted Needful Yarns Santa Ana that I bought from Elann last year.
