Another great year at Twist in St-André-Avellin! This year they had a “mini farm” to go with the fibre theme, and the girls and I made some excellent finds! Compared to last year, there were a lot more vendors selling yarn, but fewer lace-makers and artisans. Not that I’m complaining - I wound up with a pretty awesome haul.

More shots of the cardigan I finished on the weekend! The base of the pattern was called Spice Trail from the East, in Knitty and I altered it heavily. I’ll put all of the details on my blog! I’m really happy with how it turned out, what do you guys think? #violetknits #currentlycrafting #knitting #knitty #love #crafts #handmade #pastel #igers #instagood #photooftheday #girl #cute
Socks are my favorite thing to knit, especially for other people. I think they’re the most caring thing you can knit for someone because you’ll spend up to weeks working intricate cables into them that’ll be destroyed in a year or two because your person wore them to bits. And it’s okay because you’ll just make them another pair and holey socks mean that they were loved.
