Fridays at Cosi

There were 6 of us today at Cosi’s. I look forward to the conversations, growing camaraderie, and of course a delicious lunch!

Sara is making a gauge for a baby blanket gift she’s going to start soon. I’m going to write up a pattern that will be a “mindless” knit with a ruffle for a border. She’s near the end of the front of her husband’s cable sweater. Just two sleeves away!

Michelle (who is making the same sweater for her husband) finished sewing one side and finished weaving all her ends. She said, she’s in the home stretch and the finished sweater is now attainable. There may be a celebration after she’s finished, just bring the lint brush!

Shilpi joined us for the first time, normally she goes on Tuesday nights. She’s finishing a beautiful baby sweater (and learned to sew with the mattress stitch). Her next project will be a baby sweater where she learns to add a cable. It’s great how she jumps into new stitches with such determination.

Mary and I returned to the La Baguette pattern by Jane Elliott. I finally caught up with her on the bottom. Unfortunately Mary went the wrong way in her short rows. Very easy to do. That meant taking it back to the first spiral wedge. Luckily, the spirals can go quickly. Mary, I finished the bottom and the rest of the bag is not knit in the round!

Robin came with Bria and they showed us fantastic bracelets they made at Beadz Boutique in Darien. They were amazing. Robin said that the people at the store helped you with your beading project and no appointment is necessary.
