actual knitting content

i can't believe it's already february. the whole month of january has mysteriously vanished - i have no idea of where i was or what i was doing. i've been working a LOT, dyeing up a storm in the new studio (which has been fantastic - it's sooooo great to have such an amazing space to work in!) and i'm waiting on the delivery of two new electric hobs - serious, catering-quality stuff, so i should be able to dye even more after i get them. alas, this means my days of sitting at home knitting all day are over, so any actual knitting content has been hard to come by.

katje 1katje 2

katje (in artesano alpaca aran, colourway "sunset") just needs sleeves and buttons, and then she'll be done - maybe next week? the sleeves should be the easy part, so i'm hoping to finish up fairly quickly.

brainless socks

and there's some sock knitting going on as well - the "brainless" socks (designed by yarnissima for the wollmeise ravelry group, in wollmeise sockenwolle, sock club colourway "saami") . but that's about all i've had time for lately! i've got a queue of projects a mile long that i want to get started on, but i just don't have the time - guess that's what happens when you start working for a living, eh? and i've got a couple of things coming up in the next few months that will cut down on my knitting time even more....

Wish I could come along to the Trunk show ! Sigh! Those socks look amazing and the sweater is coming on a treat - such lovely shade.
