Listen To the Episode
Really excited about how @thefiberseed Dual Solid knits up for a classy men's sock. I've got about 20 rounds to go before it's time to put in a #🐠👄😚👠 and zoom down the foot. Pattern is kinda a 3×1 rib (one round of k3, p1 followed by a round of knit). I like the stretch that creates in the fabric without the need to do ribbing the whole way down the sock. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #socks #fishlipskissheel
Quite an impressive collection of preemie hats, isn't it? Lindsay from @thefiberseed gave these to me yesterday at the #TNNAShow so I could donate them to @fsn_cc. They are all knit or crocheted from The Fiber Seed yarn (which is awesome), and were made as part of the KAL/CAL she recently hosted. Thanks, Lindsay! (And Jordan 😉)
