#soakphotochallenge Day 19: Blanket - First #crochet project from 4+ years ago. It remains unfinished because of all those seams! #lawdhavemercy #seaminsanity #whatthewhat #WhoThoughtThatWasAGoodIdea #blanket #granniesquares #handmade
#soakphotochallenge Day 18: Colorway — Green! It’s the end all and be all for me despite what my IG feed suggests (*cough* red). I don’t come across good greens very often but deep, saturated, rich emerald and kelly green are my favorites. #color #green #yarn #igknitters #igspinners
#soakphotochallenge Day 17: Socks. I’m not really a sock knitter, but I did spin this yarn with the intent of trying out a new sock technique. One of these days… ;) #igknitters #igspinners #falkland #navajoply #socks #yarn #twoifbyhand #handmade #knitting #handspun

#soakphotochallenge Day 16: Fiber
Not a lot of #spinning going on cause you know, heat wave and all… #igspinners #targhee #wool #fiber
#soakphotochallenge Day 15: Cowl(s) - Pretty much my favorite thing to knit next to shawls this year. Oversized, lacy, striped, out of handspun… yes please! #igknitters #igspinners #knitting #cowlcrazy #cowls
#soakphotochallenge Day 14: Skein - I can’t seem to get enough of Beaverslide Dry Goods these days. This stuff is addicting.  #beaverslidedrygoods #woolen #yarn #igknitters #knitting
#soakphotochallenge Day 13: Knitting Bag - My favorite and most used are baskets and see-thru styles. I also reuse all my plastic bags from my spinning fiber to hold my yarn as I knit. #reduce #recycle #reuse #wastenotwantnot #igknitters #knitting #bags #baskets
#soakphotochallenge Day 12: Texture - First cloth. This is the first cloth off the #rigidheddleloom that has been warped since *cough* the beginning of the year. My partner in crime worked on this while binge watching sports last weekend. Done in two hours with bulky yarn. Next round, handspun! #weaving #igweavers #texture
Home stretch. Border time! #igknitters #knitting #shawl #beaverslidedrygoods #woolen
#soakphotochallenge Day 11: Fave Tools - I’m pretty minimal and streamlined, but my favorite tools are related to my Masters in Ripping, Frogging, and Tinking. I was a triple major.

Highlighter tape, measuring tape, row counter, lots of repair hooks of different sizes, mini scissors, lots of stitch markers (the three ring circus and spindle cat studio on etsy), post-it notes, handmade/handturned pencil made by the hubster. And lip balm. ;)
#soakphotochallenge Day 10: Dream Project - My love for the Brooklyn Tweed aesthetic has been well documented, so my pick should  come as no surprise. 

This is “Exeter” designed by Michele Wang for Brooklyn Tweed Spring Thaw (2012). This project was knit by the talented SiO2 (great photos, right?). I love a nice oversized sweater with an oversized collar. The cables add so much texture. This sweater is ALL kinds of big and chunky and would be so wonderful to curl up in. Loooove this! #obsessed #mustknitfaster #igknitters #knitting #brooklyntweed
#soakphotochallenge Day 9: Cast On — #10stitchblanket out of ‘vintage’ handspun from a few years ago. This is a 20 oz (567 g) gradient spin where I mixed 4 different colored braids of fiber. A nod to my painting days… #corgihillfarm #shescrafty #gradient

#soakphotochallenge Day 8: Favorite Yarn — My handspun, of course! I work mostly with fingering and sport weight yarn that is traditional 3-ply, chain ply, and singles. When I can’t find the ‘perfect’ yarn for a project, I spin it. True #process at its best. #diy #ThisAintEvenTheHalfOfIt #thatyarntho #makersgonnamake #igspinners #igknitters #handspun #yarn #slowspins #handspunstagram #soakworthy
