  • Joy’s delightful Lexi the Peerie Mouse.  As some of you know, I’ve been (very slowly) working on Alex the Mouse, May’s A Year of Techniques project.  I’ve loved AYoT so far — not just for the amazing patterns, but for the camaraderie and inspiration of the monthly knitalongs.  Joy’s skillful adaptation of the Alex the Mouse pattern is so cute and lovely — I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of looking at it.  You can see lots more adorable pictures and read the details of Joy’s adaptation on her Ravelry project page, linked above.  Joy is KnittingJoy on Ravelry and joyous360 on Instagram — she’s a beautiful knitter with a wonderful color sense — definitely check out some of her other projects as well!
  • And while we’re on the subject of AYoT, I’m absolutely in love with June’s project, the Talmadge Cloche by Romi Hill.  I’m excited for a bit of lace knitting, and I love that the hat has a very vintage feel while being totally wearable.  I’m casting on this weekend, despite having too many WIPs on the needles already.
  • This new sweater, designed by Katrin Schneider (I particularly like this test knit version).  What a great wardrobe staple it would make!
  • I’m a big admirer of Scrumptiouspurl’s self striping yarn (I don’t have any myself, but I love her Instagram feed), and I love this new color, exclusive to Wool and Honey.  I’m very tempted …. except for the fact that I really have no business getting new sock yarn!

That’s it for today — thanks as always for stopping by.  And I’d love to hear what’s caught your eye this week!!

  1. All wonderful favs- but that version of Alex of the Mouse stole my heart. I often avoid toys because I think they are fiddly, but this one has me thinking I need one. 🙂
