May Wrap Up – The Clubs

May was very, very busy for me. VERY. Not only did I have my first outdoor, two day vending gig, I had to travel to attend it. And I brought my family with me. It was an adventure! Plus I had two club shipments to complete.

First up: the clubs.

The Not so Guilty club focused on my favorite musical guilty pleasure, Katy Perry.

Revelous Sockie Maki Set – Boom, Boom, Boom

I love this colorway! I chose the Revelous (sw merino/bamboo rayon/nylon) and its fiber counterpart for the sock and fiber club shipments. This blend is great for summer socks. Luxury Shawl club members received Telyn Maki put up in an exclusive 115g/4oz size.

Once again, members received some great stitch markers from Lucid Sunshine

In the Tripping Yarn Balls Zodiac Club, it was Taurus’s month. Taurus. A bull. It took me a while to find inspiration. I finally settled on a calf-inspired, self-striping colorway. I’m happy to say it was well received by members.

On Wednesday, you’ll find out what happens when I don’t make a packing list.

FO Friday – Tripping Yarn Balls Stripe Study Shawl

It’s Finished Object Friday, again!

I recently finished my Stripe Study Shawl (designed by Veera Välimäki) using Shameless Twist Obedience sock yarn. Her Capricorn and Libra colorways are from the Tripping Yarn Balls collaborative indie dyer yarn club. Our theme is, obviously, the zodiac and we’re having a blast working together. And Jodi is a genius for designing two colorways meant for each other.

I added some beads to the edge to highlight the opalescent qualities of Libra. I only used one tube of beads, so they add a little bit of shine without a lot of weight. I love this shawl!
