- Thank you so much for your #snowcuffchoppers pattern purchases, everyone! It’s been a week since I put the pattern up and it’s been so encouraging to see the steady stream of sales since. 100% of the money is still going to local charities, one of which being our food bank. They make an amazing impact on our community by feeding school kids over the weekends, holidays and summer breaks, helping to ease the pressure on families that depend on free or reduced price school lunches. It’s been thrilling to see everyone’s beautiful mitten knitting progress here and on Ravelry, so thank you for sharing your photos! If you are still looking for a last minute gift, these mittens knit up incredibly fast! I suggest filling them with chocolate, ornaments, tiny presents or candy canes like little Christmas stockings!

- ++ UPDATE Wow! Thanks for the amazing response everyone! Unless there's some amazingly fast knitters out there who can convince me otherwise, I think I'm set for test knitters for now! You all should be hearing from me soon. THANK YOU!!!! ++ Anyone looking for a great mitten pattern for Christmas this year? I hope to finally release my Snowcuff Chopper into the wild this winter, but am looking for people who would be willing to test the toddler, child, teen, women or men's sizes. If you're interested, send me an email through the link in my profile letting me know what size you'd be interested in knitting, and I should be getting in touch soon. Feel free to tag people you think may be interested, I'd sure love it!

- Rhinebeck 2017! While we were out east, it was looking like we would have to return home a lot earlier than expected, but Doug was able to find what felt like the ONLY remaining house rental anywhere close to the New York Sheep And Wool Festival, so we headed upstate! We had such a great time and I feel so happy to have experienced it. I was so thankful I had brought my Holiday Tee by @eritml knit with @thefarmersdaughterfibers along on the trip because it ended up making the perfect Rhinebeck sweater for this pretty hot year. I also wore my#farmhousecardigan by @savoryknitting on Sunday and my #verticesunite by @westknits (details of the yarn used months back in my feed) all weekend long. I think my favorite part of the whole weekend was seeing so many familiar faces and meeting and talking to @michele_nyc @sandyran @thefatsqrrl @legacyfiberartz @knit1chgo @allysondykhuizen @jgoerold @saltairarts and a couple kind others. Since we were headed home right after the festival and had been on the road for almost a month, I had just enough luggage space for a sweater's quantity of @peace_fleece and some amazing machine knitting wool. What a great weekend! 🐑🐑🐑

- While we were traveling last month, I somehow finished my Ninilchik Swoncho by @boylandknitworks despite the complete insanity! I had the goal to finish it in case I was able to make it to Rhinebeck, but my daughter actually wore it for the festival on Sunday since it looked great on her and she could tolerate the long sleeves in that heat (kind of crazy and kind of amazing when your kids get big enough to swap clothes with you... especially on long trips!). I one hundred percent copied @porcupinestitches beautiful color choices, but used @berrocoyarn Remix Light yarn instead. You're going to want to check out her version in a gorgeous mixture of dk wools. It looks so cozy!

- I just finished my October socks and I'm pretty pumped for two reasons - considering the circumstances, finishing these two days late was pretty dang good, and this cashmere yarn is out of this world! I was so thrilled to attend #needlesup the Friday before Rhinebeck, and had been itching to buy a skein of @legacyfiberartz yarn for socks after finishing my travel knitting a week earlier. The event itself was so much fun, but seeing the incredible wall of Sue and Chelsea's beautiful yarn had me standing there dumbfounded for quite a while. I gravitated towards this "Parchment" colorway right away, but it wasn't until my shopping buddy said "Mom, get that one. It reminds me of where we just were and the grey cottages next to the blue ocean" that I was 100% sure they would make the perfect October socks. And coming home to a winter wonderland seems fitting, too! I am very pleased with the fit of these socks which has been fine tuned over this year. I made up the garter pattern as I went, but I'm pretty sure I was inspired by a pair of baby socks I vaguely remember making years ago. And speaking of knitting, how beautiful is this guernsey scarf I'm using as a table runner made by @rehugg ?

- I have a lot of catching up to do on here, but I thought I'd get the ball rolling by sharing my September socks. You know the spiel, nothing fancy or different on these ones. Except for the sock blocker I made out of a ritz cracker box to photograph these while on the road last month, that's definitely fancy. I'm too lazy to find the yarn label, but I do know they're from one of the @arnecarlos lines by Regia. They were finished one day late, and it's looking like my October socks are going to be the same deal. You guys, it's been quite the month.

- I finished Holiday by @eritml in this beautiful @thefarmersdaughterfibers yarn in the color Winter Wolf, and now I'm ready to turn right back around and make another. This is one of those patterns that's simple in all the right ways and the fit is really gooooood. This yarn was a perfect choice for it, too. Two skeins were just enough to make it short sleeved, which I wasn't sure about, but turns out I absolutely love. Too bad that just the day after finishing it, it dropped forty degrees! Hej då summer, I'll be waiting patiently to greet you wearing the best summer sweater!

- When you know you love a pattern, why not knit it again? Another Farm House Cardigan by Amy Christoffers, this time knit with Hikoo Rylie yarn, an alpaca/linen/silk blend. I had originally used this yarn to knit the Sleeper Car Jacket a couple summers back, but I think I should have knit it one size larger since it kept pulling and slipping off my shoulders. Frogging that cardigan was crazy, I had to just kind of charge ahead and not think about it! Being able to repurpose this yarn was so much fun and totally worth it though. Rylie is a sport weight yarn, so I had to gauge and decide which needle size I liked the best (I ended up going with a US 7), then I picked a body size based on the gauge I was getting (size 47 I think). I started with the sleeves and ended up having to reknit them a couple times to get them just right. I eventually decided this yarn demanded I use a tubular cast on so that there would be some stretch at the wrists and waist. I'm so happy with the fit of this sweater, and the lighter weight and softness makes it perfect for summer and travel.

- My July socks came off the needles just in time! Man guys, July has been quite the month, one I definitely don't want to repeat. There have been a lot of doctor's offices, lots of blood draws and IVs, lots of confusion (still lots of confusion actually), stacks of medical records and insurance information and medical history forms, four MRI's between June and July, and then at the end of all that push, a last minute cancelled trip. It's funny, with June having it's share of curveballs too, I grabbed thicker dk weight yarn thinking I'd give myself a break and get these done within a couple days. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Or 31. I did love this Knitcol yarn (color 073) though which was kindly given to me by a friend. I had been hoping I'd be taking on some sock challenges by now (at least an afterthought heel or two), but obviously July was a much needed mindless vanilla sock month. And I think just to be safe, I'm going to stick to a vanilla sock next month too.

- Doug's Father's Day socks are finally done, knit in this wonderful local merino/yak/silk blend. Doug is such a good dad, and ends up helping me out more than either of us expected he would have to. Most recently, he's been waking up at 4:30 every morning and working before we all wake up which makes his work day end nice and early. He's also been doing all of my AIP cooking since I abruptly jumped into the elimination phase more than a month ago. He's wrestled the kids and brought them outside on days I felt like I would shrivel up and die in the heat, coming up with useful things for them to all work on in our tiny little yard. He's also meticulously worked on a vegetable garden from seed to help us get fresh, amazing produce every single day. These socks may be a month late, but he's still the most knitworthy person I could ever imagine.
