Carol joined us for the first time and brought with her, for show and tell, an incredible Christening gown she knit for her son 23 years ago while on bed-rest. It was a Beatrix Potter pattern.
The bobbles looked so nice that it might even convert Janice to bobble-ism. (Part of our unofficial tally of those who love/hate bobbles or a new art trend.)
She swatched for the pattern for Lucille, a top down, set in sleeves yarn sweater in Anzula for Better or Worsted in a gorgeous pink (Worsted: 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon, 200 yards).
Carol is also in the process of knitting the Enchanted Forest Cardigan. In a word, WOW.
Allison and Carol recognized each other from the Westport Yarns Anzula trunk show where they were picking through the same suitcase of yarn. Allison also plans on knitting Lucille. We plan on checking out the comments on Ravelry for any helpful hints.
She (Allison) finished all the pieces for her Customfit sweater and it is going off to the finisher! Yay!
She didn’t know where she was with her Jeweled Collar. The yarn is Artyarns Beaded Mohair & Sequins (DK: 60% Silk, 40% Mohair, 114 yards). Mary Ellen’s aha moment was finding that there was zen in watching other people knit.
She brought a picture of her daughter wearing a Lopi sweater that she knit for her years ago when she (her daughter) wanted a Lopi sweater and couldn’t find one.
Calann: 2 projects in case she makes a mistake in one, she has an alternate.
Mary Ellen: 3-4 projects (at least).
Allison: 3, Hitchhiker, Burrow, and Fallen Halo.
Carol: 1 and she’s starting a second.
Eleanor: 1 (for now), swatching for next project – Burrow.
The “1’s” are leading in this tally. How many projects do you have going at a time?
