1, 2, 3, go OR 1, 2, go?

Eleanor is really enjoying knitting the Yowza Weigh it Shawl 3 it is a completely “mindless”.  In fact, she can’t wait to wear it because she loves how the Tahki Monet (Aran: 52% Cotton, 40% Acrylic, 8% Nylon, 60 yards) is working up.
She finished the the Anytime Cardi for her great goddaughter. We chose black buttons so the buttons wouldn’t fight with the yarn.
Cornelia finished the front of her Customfit sweater.  We checked it against the measurements in the pattern and they were correct.  I used a filter on the picture to give you an idea of the gorgeous color of her Malabrigo Worsted yarn (Aran: 100% Merino, 210 yards). The pictures just haven’t been doing it justice.

Having finished the front, she is onto the sleeves.  The color is more vibrant than this.  We had a refresher on the Make One Left/Right increases. There was the question of how to interpret the increase repeat. “Increase every 5th row.” She was working an increase, working rows 2, 3, 4 and working an increase.  It should be work an increase, work rows 1, 2, 3, 4, then work an increase. Her increases were stacking too close together.

While she was in class, she noticed the new Fibers Entwined Project Bags (a/k/a “Laura Bags).  Mary liked it so much I had to order her one. 
Mary brought a future knitter with her.  We have her an Alpaca stuffie to play with.  Good to get her acquainted with the different animals.
Mary is working on her first block from the Building Blocks class I’m teaching at Westport Yarns.

She continues to make progress on the wedding garter for her daughter-in-law to be. I hope her daughter-in-law appreciates that Mary is knitting this on a #00 knitting needle.  That is love.

Michelle finished sewing her CusomFit sweater.  She absolutely loves the fit.  The only thing she would change next time is the length of the body.  She chose cropped (for a summer top) and would choose mid hip next time.  She has to pick up and knit the neck next.

She finished the Chloe sweater gift in Cobasi Plus (Worsted: 55% Cotton, 21% Nylon, 16% Bamboo, 8% Silk, 177 yards). This is a great yarn.  I knit my Stella Dolman Sweater in it.  It really holds its shape.

For those of you in Stitch and Chat who were wondering, yes, this was two weeks together.
