The Spring Fiber Expo is coming up on April 9-10 in Highland, MI.

I’m going to Spring Fling 2016 in Peru, IN.

At Jessica Knits in Scottsdale I got two hanks of Meadow yarn from the Fibre Company in Ladyslipper to make Axis.

At Isabelle’s Parlour (no website) in Wickenburg I got a hank of Paca Peds HT sock yarn in the color Mermaids Go Walking.

I plan to knit the Cotton Lace Ponchette with the Ice yarn. I couldn’t find this yarn in Ravelry. 

My vacation knitting was a pair of top down mittens knit with Ambiente yarn. Interesting yarn with great colors.

No love for the toe up socks with KnitCircus Gradient Stripes yarn. I like the yarn but not my gauge.

The Answer Lady and Ask Jack have great information for do it yourself machine maintenance.
