I'm working my way through my stash! Here's a kit that I picked up a few years ago at my favorite Outer Banks yarn shop — @knittingaddiction. This is #SeaStarHandpaints in the Cape Hatteras and Brick-ish colorways. It's DK weight yarn, and I'm going to use US3 needles to make socks with it. I'll give it the contrasting heels and toes with the Brick-ish, and I'll make contrasting cuffs if there's enough. I'm looking forward to seeing how the black and white pools for the lighthouse. One of the exciting things about this kit is that it contains buried treasure! Tied to the main hank were a few charms. The kits were packaged and advertised to contain at least one charm — I got three: a shell, a seahorse, and a starfish. It's a fun surprise and a neat way to start a new project.⁠ ⁠ #knitting #knittersofinstagram

I spent some time at the river last week. It has been very relaxing. I have a cooler full of fish that is coming home with me. I got a good amount of work at my day job accomplished (work-from-home doesn’t necessarily mean *my* home). I enjoyed catching up@on some podcasts. I picked my book back up (“Just Mercy” by @eji_org Bryan Stevenson). And I rediscovered some of my stash projects and yarn. I started a new pair of socks in #seastarhandpaints “Sweater Weather” and am excited about how it is knitting up. Now that I’m past the 1×1 ribbing, I can settle into the calming stockinette for a while. I adore my @anntudorllc handmade glass progress keeper. It’s always a fun way to “dress up” my WIPs. Have you been able to take a break recently? What is your go-to knitting for de-stressing? #knitting #knittersofinstagram

With all the staying at home I’ve been doing recently, it’s really fun when yarn just shows up at my door. And that’s exactly what I get from @knitcrate every month. This months theme is “Luminous” and the two hanks of URU.YARN Sugared Sport fit the bill. I got the Lapis colorway and it is 70% merino, 20% nylon, and 10% stellina. It practically sparkles in my hands. Since I’ve recently started weaving, I’m considering putting this on my loom instead of knitting one of the included patterns. This month’s extra is my favorite wool wash — @soakwash. Of course, I already have a bottle, but it’s nice to have a small sample size for traveling. Thanks, Knitcrate! ——⁠ Knitcrate is a premium yarn subscription service.
