Jane B. wanted to compare the lengths of her Beech Hill Poncho in Acadia (DK: 60% Merino, 20% Silk, 20% Alpaca, 145 yards). She wanted to confirm she was at the right point to begin the bottom border. Later this week she sent if off to the finisher.
Jane brought this very cool contraption called a Yarn Buddy. She even tracked down the link for me. We share a love of knitting notions, bags, and basically any nifty product that simplifies life.
She knit 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).
For the first time (that I can remember) Eleanor is knitting with red; it is not a color she normally wears! She is knitting the #409 Cool Hemp Ponchette in the Rowan Softknit Cotton.
She finished the Ship Ahoy! sweater from Zoe Mellor’s book, Adorable Knits for Tots: 25 Stylish Designs for Babies and Toddlers.
Next on the needles will be the #409 Cool Hemp Ponchette in Blue Heron Rayon Metallic (DK: 88% Rayon, 12% Metallic, 550 yards).
Mary’s magic bag this week was the Mamy Bag, a bag we crocheted in a class several years ago. As a result of the class, we made some modifications which can be found here.
Allison was knitting along happily on her Easy Folded Poncho in Anzula Cricket (DK: 80% Merino, 10% Nylon, 10% Cashmere, 250 yards).
