Jane knit not one, but two swatches and found the right gauge in Acadia (DK: 60% Merino, 20% Silk, 20% Alpaca, 145 yards) for the Easy Folded Poncho she is knitting.
The first one is the Collina Blanket in Berroco Comfort (Worsted: 50% Nylon, 50% Acrylic, 210 yards). Nice looking blanket that is written for several sizes.
Mary finished block #10 on her Building Blocks Afghan. She is into block #11, where she learned how to pfb, otherwise known as a purl into the front and back (increase).
And the knit goes on.
Now that spring has sprung, I have the pleasure of sitting outside to blog. The dogs have assumed their natural deck/coffee table positions.
