- Greg is working on his Halcyarn Socks (project page). First sock is complete, and he’s about 50% done with the foot of the second sock. He’s hoping to move this to FO by the next time we record. 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.

A couple of treasures from the #CarolinaFiberFest! The #vworpvworpvworp #DoctorWho project bag is from @shopsewflo Sabrina and is super awesome. Even cooler is that it pairs wonderfully with the #TravelMug kit from @knits4comfort Jennifer. I ❤ this kit! I started knitting it at the fest yesterday and finished it during lunch this afternoon. The kit contains a generous portion of yarn — I have enough to add a mitered square to my blanket, and maybe a hexipuff. I'm really looking forward to showing off my stitches with my coffee. And finding a new project to put in the sweet TARDIS bag!
