What great test knits, thanks for sharing! I am currently working on The Perfect Blend MKAL from Casapinka and having a great time. I'm using 12 mini skeins from Miss Babs in a "special edition" with a wild iris in the mix. Bright jewel tones. I have you, Allison, to thank for bringing that MKAL to my attention by mentioning it in your blog - this is my first knit-along of any kind (I have not felt confident enough to keep up or experienced enough to follow the pattern) but when they mentioned a "lag-a-long" group, I jumped in. Thanks again!
For knitting at our weekly sit and knit I am working on the shawl Silverleaf with a cotton yarn, easy to keep track of while talking.


That last one is right up my color alley. The first one worked up beautifully.
I'm knotting Changing Staircases


I love purples! I am finishing a pair of Christmas socks for myself that I started last year, haha! Also knit three hats for my kids this week. I have a hysterectomy tomorrow! This afternoon I am winding the yarn that I got from you last week (it came so fast, thank you) so that I'm ready and motivated to rest!


The top yarn (fall colors) is outside my normal range of color choices for myself but very much inside my younger daughter’s. So I might get it to make something for her. The pink, blue, purple is more my taste. But I like the speckled yarn that Rachael used better than either. She is an incredibly talented knitter.


Beautiful knitting! I just finished a Hitchhicker and now I am trying Find Your Fade. But if the lace proves to challenging for me some hats in DK will be next.

The first picture with treacle brown yarn is not something I'd usually knit but I like it - and you can work outside your usual for socks because it's easy to hide them in shoes if they don't turn out to be your favourite.


I am making Hermoine's socks with the last ( August) club yarn. I love the purple and gold. I would never choose it myself but I can't put it down..


I am in love with that brown/gold/green colorway, but I lean toward fall colors. Currently using a hank of Yarn Love and working on Show-Off Stranded socks and the Artfil Christmas kit and making Vanilla is the New Black socks.


That first sock is definitely within my color comfort range--very similar to Malabrigo Piedras, which was my first purchase to convince me that it was worthwhile to buy 'good' yarn.
