Administration:
Still working out any kinks in the layout and format.
Watercolor stripes vs variegated when ordering. Watercolor Stripe colors will be clearly marked.
World’s Smallest Craft Fair was great. We’re doing it again on October 8. Correction: The date is being moved. I'll update when I have the final date.

Bootstrap Socks by Lara Neel
Spectrum by Joji Locatelli out of Louet Euroflax in Eggplant and Mustard (frogged)
Kvothe by Carmen Smolne 80/20 sw merino/nylon test base in the Taupiary color (frogged)
Rings of Saturn by verybusymonkey out of Inscrutable MysteryWatercolor Stripes on the Targhee base 90/10.  This thread helped me sort out the elongated twist stitches.
