Tuesday’s Stitch and Chat…
Jane received her Lotus Cashmere (DK: 100% Cashmere, 200 yards) that she will knit the Purl Soho Top-Down Turtleneck Cardigan (with).
During a conversation about naming pets, Jane said that her first cat was deaf. She named him “What”.
Exploration Station is giving Eileen quite the go around. The pattern stitch isn’t particularly difficult and she understands it. It was a mystery why she keeps getting off pattern – until today. She selectively read the pattern and missed a decrease on one of the rows. Keep your fingers crossed, she’s halfway done with this section and then she can bind off.
Her alternate project is Cloudy with a Chance of Bling (great name!). She’s knitting it with Artyarns Merino Cloud (Fingering: 80% Merino, 20% Cashmere, 436 yards and Artyarns Beaded Mohair and Sequins (DK: 60% Silk, 40% Mohair, 114 yards).
Lori finished her swatch for the cover up she is designing. We agreed the fabric was too tight – she’s going to go up two needle sizes and re-knit the swatch. She didn’t realize (until I pointed it out) that her new puppy snacked on her knitting needle! Apparently the puppy has a taste for yarn.
