Wow these weeks are slipping by so quickly!
We have 2 weeks left in the KAL!
I’m working away on my second pair of Business Casual’s while admiring my beautiful new Yarn Bowl.
My dad is a tad addicted to his lathe and I asked him to try making a few yarn bowls. This one is made out of Oak, Ash and Mahogany. I’m a complete sucker for Mahogany! He has several more finished up that I need to take pictures of so expect a full blog post with purchase information shortly..
Now onto the socks!!!
AndreaSJ chose London-Wul Heidi’s by Hand for her Spring-ish pair of socks.
Hannah finished her socks using Calkwalk Yarns Walk
FancyBell knit her BC’s with Tanis Blue Label in the colourway Thrills
Susieville chose Tanis Blue Label in Chestnut for the version she knit for her husband.
Hege has been hard at work. These are her third(above) and forth(below) pairs of Business Casuals.
She used Garnstudio Drops Fabel for both pairs.

I have more prize to show you this week.
Susan of Girl Cave Bags has kindly donated this cute sheep sock bag perfect for your current sock WIP.
Make sure to check out her Etsy shop for updates and uber cute bags to house your knitting. Love!
We also have three fabulous designers who are each generously donating patterns.
SpillyJane is a master when it comes to quirky knits. If your socks are covered in Gnomes or Pints of Beer everyone knows you’ve knit a SpillyJane pattern! She takes inspiration from pottery songs and food and I just love her quirky style.
Jane is kindly offering up one of her patterns for one lucky finisher!
