the rundown

Okay, just so this blog has some actual *content*, a quick summary: I'm Holli, college student in Amish country, native of the D.C. area. I've been knitting for a year and a half, spinning since September, and a fiber snob already-- the learning curve, she is steep. When I'm at home, I sew, sketch, and occasionally bead, but most of my good craft stuff is in boxes in my parents' basement these days.

On the needles right now:

  • Two pairs of socks in Knitpicks yarns, one for my sister and one for me. I have one sock from each pair finished, and the other halfway done.
  • My second try at a sweater in purple Peruvian Highland Wool from elann (the first one grew too much in the wash, and defeated all attempts at blocking). I'm calling it Harold, because it is exactly that purple crayon shade.
  • A to-be-felted blue-and-green pencil case for my other sister, in yarn that used to be a deeply horrifying sweater of my dad's.

  • Recently completed: a mini Kiri, two non-matching socks, and a whole lot of spinning. Pictures forthcoming.
