Fiber Friday: Little Giant & Moss Stitch

20140131-101055.jpgI am traveling this week, so I took an easy sweater for the trip, and since it’s SUPER bulky it’s moving along very quickly. The pattern is another Wool and the Gang pattern, Little Giants. I’m already done with the front and the back, and I can’t wait to do the sleeves and seam it up! Cozy!!! Plan on wearing it for the Superbowl! Go Seahawks!!
Until then, here’s a lovely pile of knitted goodness:

Spin (and knit) on!

Another finished sweater

I have been a bit of a knitting fiend. But here’s the crazy trail that took me to this now-my-favorite sweater. A few weeks ago I wrote this post about knitting and yoga. I mentioned in the post that I looked around to see who else was making this awesome connection. That brought me to this article in The Guardian, which took me to one of my new favorite fiber addictions, Wool and the Gang.

Oh. My. Gosh. I love the edgy cool factor in their knits. The attitude. The clean designs that are appealing to both beginning and advanced knitters. The fact that I cranked this hoodie out in a week and a half was just a bonus. They have a really unique vibe that reminds us that knitting is a blast!

I’ve been doing a ton of spinning, so I bought the knit kit for the hoodie because it was cotton yarn–something I am not likely to spin. Ever. Now I just want to try a bunch of their other patterns. The only mod I will make to my next hoodie (because there will be another) is to knit the sleeves in the round and the body in one piece. Bam!

Happy Friday and spin on!
