Super fun knitting.
I have been knitting lots of mini mochimochi toys lately. So far last week I made 3 aliens, a cactus, corn on the cob, and a gnome. These tiny guys are so much fun. One of the problems I have is mixing yarns. If the yarns are not very close to exactly the same weight and texture.. it can be a bit of a problem. It seems like knitpicks has the best prices on sock yarn.. so I ordered a bunch of colors from them.. to solve my matching problems. I have never used their yarn before.. but I have heard good things about them. I have also been working on a fun shawl.. I am using Filati(FFF) Moira yarn.. it is a yarn with tiny ribbons tied around the main strands. Easy to work with and a fun yarn.
