On the Needles
Botanical Garden Shawl - did alot of knitting in the car and finished the body! I have not finished the body of a shawl in MONTHS. Wrist is doing better because of constant vigilance as per Mad Eye Moody - immobilizer at night and during the day when i am not knitting and when I do, back to the support brace.
I have ordered my Lendrum! It is coming from California because in the end I decided upon the Lendrum DT Original.
I am participating in Felicia Lo's Spinning Dyed Fibers blog tour, which is an online class on Craftsy. Check back on August 22, my stop on the tour for my post!

Cookie A Volume 1: Shapes + Form
As per usual, every time I go to Florida, I go to Disney. This time, The Aussie was with me and even though I was in Epcot the same time as Shari/Stitchmistress of the TV Knitting podcast, my phone died so our paths didn't cross.
Uncommon Threads in Palm Harbor, second was Knit n' Knibble in Tampa.
Greenville's Wool Over Your Eyes was the best - it wasn't there when I was in SC the last time (I went to The Needle Tree, which was outside downtown Greenville) and just as we were walking in, someone was delivering an antique spinning wheel for the shop and assembling it.
Lastly, I made a bit of a discovery - my grandmother has owned this sewing machine for over 25 years. Turns out, it is a Singer machine from 1947. It is in perfect condition.
Ravellenics - got off to a good start in first week but in the second week what with the trip down to flordia, lost a bit of the sweater mojo. I watched ALOT of the Olympics via the BBC and loved the opening ceremony, it had alot of heart and whimsy and showed that it didnt need to be flashy.
The winner of The Market Vegan cookbook giveaway is Sue! Please contact me via email or Ravelry.
