- Joey’s Pussyhat made it to the DC march, and then went to Montana.
- Joey continues to work on a scarf for his son.
- Greg is working on his Halcyarn Socks (project page). First sock is complete, and he’s about 25% done with the leg of the second sock. He loves the contrasting cuffs, toes, and heels in black, but he hates weaving in the ends with black yarn. Yarn is custom-dyed by Dr. Kelly from the Ewe University podcast.
- Greg has converted his imaginary knitting to real-life knitting: the Sun Blossoms Cowl (project page) with amazing alpaca yarn from Fair Winds Farm.
- Greg resumed work on the Flower Cardigan (project page) that is he working on for his daughter.
- Greg started a Milo (project page) for a friend’s impending baby. He is knitting it Berroco Fiora, which he is really enjoying.

The February 2017 @knitcrate is bursting with goodness! The yarn is three(!) hanks of @mrscrosbyplays Steamer Trunk. The pattern is a patchwork purse collection from Irene York, which looks very interesting. The extra is a delicious-smelling (spoiler: it's lavender!) heart-shaped bath bomb from @PettingMyUnicorn.⠀ ⠀ There is still time to get this month's crate if you subscribe now!

#YarnLoveChallenge Day 4: speed. I'm not a fast knitter, so I wondered how I would represent "speed" in the challenge. Then I realized that "slow" is a speed! Here's a picture of a sweater I started for Blueberry this past summer, hoping to have it ready for this fall. Well, I just pulled it out of hibernation last night and will be lucky if I finish it before it gets too warm for her to wear this season. That's OK, I'm making it large enough for her to get several seasons out of it. I can't even figure where I left off with the pattern! Time for some detective work. I'm obviously a process knitter, and keeping it slow is just fine with me. What's your speed when it comes to knitting? #knitting #knittersofinstagram cc: @yarnlovechallenge @oharethey @maryheatherb
