Productive Knitting month

So March has been a productive knitting month for me. Not only have I finished 4 pairs of socks (3 of which were started in March), I have taught my BFF, Jaimie, how to knit socks too! I have brought her to the dark side and she will never go back, mwhahahahahaha! *insert evil grin to go with laugh*

I have also gotten some spinning finished. I finished spinning up the wool that I dyed, and made my first 3 ply (that wasnt navajo plied) sock yarn. I am currently knitting, what else but socks with it.

In other news, my back is hurting again - UGH. Kaitlyn went to the dermatologist and got diagnosed with psoriasis (at least now we know what it is). Jacob got his braces off! YAY! He has been chewing gum almost constantly since he got them off - except for school hours.

It is called Steeking, and it is scary! Meghan from the Stitch It! Podcast is hosting a steeking contest, so I decided to try it. I had a swatch from my Green Susie sweater just laying around, and it is wool, so I decided to go for it! So I followed the crocheted steek instructions from Euny Jang here that Meghan shared with us, and did it!! I got Kaitlyn to help me take pictures of the actual cutting process. And it worked!! Here is the photo progression!
