busy bees - posted by Melissa


Flood's Flock 2017

Don't we look gooooood!?!

I screen grabbed everyone's latest progress photo from Instagram.  I'm going to try and do this periodically, especially if you guys are going to be so good about posting pictures!  I love to see where everyone is at and hear how excited you all are to be knitting together.  Andrea is bottom center - I don't see that she has an IG account so I'll always add her from her blog posts.  The only person missing is Morgen... she has yet to post anywhere (I even checked Ravelry) so I used a placeholder center square until she pops up somewhere to say hello!

update: Morgen surfaced and has taken her place at center square!!

Okay, I have 100 picots done and 267 left, so now that a little business is done, I'm off to knit my last day of vacation away until I'm hopefully done casting on!

Happy New Year everyone and thanks so much to each of you for making it something to look forward to.  You guys are the best!

Melissa

p.s. blog posts are always welcome from anyone that wants to write as well as post pictures - IG is great, but the blog is an easier format for words, if you're someone who likes to use them ; )

  1. Lol! I'm here Melissa! I had a blog post prewritten and was waiting morning light for photos...which I took yesterday. Frustrated because uploading the pics spun them on their side. Sigh.
    I am knitting Anisos in Rowan Felted Tweed DK in the color Duck Egg and am doing size 3 of the shawl. 300 stitches cast on and another 200 some to go. I'll post pics as soon as I can!!

  6. I've got about the last 50 yet to cast on. I don't have much room left on the 32" needles. Knit on, friends!
