I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I started mine off by making some Hot Cross Buns… how very typically Easter! The recipe is from The Pioneer Woman here. While mine weren’t quite as pretty (by the time I iced them it was laaaate…), they did taste good!
I received a lovely skein of Cascade Heritage Hand Painted as a gift in a very pretty blue. This yarn is 75% merino and so soft! (On Ravelry here)
I’ve cast on a pair of socks with it. The pattern is Angee from Cookie A’s Sock Innovation. The pattern and the yarn are lovely, but I’m beginning to think these socks are cursed… I had to cast on three times before I got past the cuff (seriously, ribbing. You would think I’d have figured that one out by now…) and then 6 rows into the set up rounds, I couldn’t figure out why my stitch count was off. Turns out I dropped a stitch and it had fallen about a dozen rows. I’ll bring it back up later tonight (and then we’ll see how far I get before something else happens!). (On Ravelry here)
I also bought a drop spindle at my LYS this weekend. It came with come fibre and I’ve been learning how to spin. My yarn isn’t anywhere near perfect yet, but it’s getting a bit more even. I can’t wait to finish it up so that I can try plying it and knitting it! (On Ravelry here)
