Trammi finishing first sleeve of Essence Pullover in Tahoe (Aran: 32% Nylon, 27% Wool, 25% Alpaca, 16% Yak. She tried it on to see how the sleeve length was. Then she marked down the exact rows (to the best of her knowledge) and measurements. We chose centimeters instead of inches because it was a more exact measurement. Time to begin the twisted ribbing. One sleeve done, one to go.
She is definitely feeling the difference of knitting with super bulky yarn, it is like “changing from tree limbs to tooth picks”. It’s a real adjustment. She finds she is splitting the plies and has to be more careful. The knitting will be more time consuming and worth it in the long run.
She brought in her swatch for her Customfit cardigan. After months of watching Allison and Eleanor work on theirs – then seeing the gorgeous finished sweaters, she had to make one for herself. I won’t be far behind her.
She finished her Enchanted Forest Cardigan from Vogue Knitting Fall ’92. Or her ghost sweater as we have come to call it. Actually I said it was a haunted forest cardigan because it was giving her grief. She is happily giving it to the finisher.
Mallory brought in the first five stockings she has knit on our stocking journey. The first on on the left is the (sixth) one she is currently working on.
