Twisted Again?!

Lois caught what everyone else had last week, twisting her stitches when she joined in the round. She was able to remedy her own mistake (go Lois!).
Robin is knitting my Twist and Shout summer mobius in a Great Adirondack yarn she bought at Westport Yarns. The colorway is reminiscent of a sunset. Robin had a couple of false starts and once she could see the pattern manifest itself, she was in a better place.
Mary started off with her Sasha skirt by Louet, she knit the elastic casing closed; it was very tedious work. When Mary explained the skirt, the different layers, and the length – Robin likened the skirt to her Kimono knit in the tweedy alpaca. Robin decided that it’s going to take both of them forever to finish. I don’t know, I think this was the equivalent of throwing down the gauntlet of a challenge.
Mary dropped a dropped stitch in her Artyarns Cotton String scarf. The pattern is the Drop Stitch Scarf by Christine Vogel. I like this pattern, it’s great for variegated and hand painted yarns. When Mary dropped a stitch, Lois got nervous that she was going to “catch” this too.She is almost up to the ruffle in her Chloe Sweater by Alana Dakos. Then she’s just got the sleeves and she’s done. This sweater is quick work. I still think we ought to re-size it for adults sans ruffle. (I don’t do ruffles!)
I know this is an old picture of Linda’s vest. She made her first button holes today. I’m happy to say that when she left today she only had 2 more rows of ribbing to do, then she could bind off and be done!

OK, that’s it for now, go knit/crochet something.
