It's time for a little destashing at the iknit2purl2 household. I recently organized my knitting books and found a few duplicates (my relatives know what my favorite hobby is!) and I have several duplicates of sock yarn, more than I need because why was I thinking I'd knit so many pairs in every colorway that… Continue reading YarnGiveAway on Instagram

A New Pattern to Celebrate Socktober!!!
Effervescence Socks by iknit2purl2 on Ravelry To celebrate Socktober, I designed a sock pattern to share with all of you! Effervescence is now available as a free download on Ravelry. It's an easy knit, using the mock cable stitch.

I think most knitters would agree, a knitter's idea of a block party is significantly different than what most people would think...I finally blocked some finished knitting projects. I had so much to block that my small set of Knitpicks foam blocks wasn't enough to get the job done. I had my mind on completing this huge task… Continue reading Block Party!
