  1. You've got some good stuff on this list, like that Cowichan jumper project and dyeing your own yarn. And it sounds exciting how you plan to card your own fleece! Is that sock WIP a Cat Bordhi pattern?

  8. Looking forward to your Op-Art socks. I'm still contemplating whether to get the book or not - I have very small feet so usually patterns don't fit, it feels like wasting money buying a book with patterns I might not be able to use, but then again, those socks are so yummy to look at.
