Would you like to join me in my sweater?

 Michelle spent the weekend with her sisters and Mother for her birthday and received some really cool, “knitworthy” gifts.  I especially liked this little knitted bag key chain and

these knit themed wine charms.  One of her sisters found these on Etsy.

During Stitch and Chat, Michelle worked the heel flap and turned the heel on one of her Christmas Stockings. The pattern is Ann Norling #1019 . The yarn is Shepherd’s Wool Worsted by Stonehedge Fiber Mill (Worsted: 100% Merino, 250 yards).

She was on a roll, so she finished the stocking!  Notice Casey sleeping under the stocking!

 Irene brought in these two skeins from her stash, she wants to make a poncho with them.  She’s going to knit a swatch and we’ll go from there.  She likes the poncho that Michelle knit for Westport Yarns.

I don’t have a current picture of Linda’s sweater; Knitting Pure & Simple Neck Down Pullover Tunic.  However, she’s finished the first sleeve and is knitting the second. The yarn is Encore Worsted (Worsted: 75% Acrylic, 25% Wool, 200 yards). This size of the sweater continues to be the source of more than a few jokes.  When it’s done, we’ve come up with a plan to best depict it’s true size.

Again, falling down on the job.  I don’t have a current picture of Elaine’s progress on her Knit, Swirl.  She’s decreasing the sleeves.
