Jane B made an executive decision to put the Purl Soho Top-Down Turtleneck Cardigan on hold and knit Snowbird in Anzula For Better or Worsted (Worsted: 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere goat, 10% Nylon, 200 yards). She’ll start by swatching on a #7 needle.
When we laid out all the pieces, we noticed that the yarn pooled in the same places on the front and back. She couldn’t have made that happen if she tried and planned for it.
She is picked up more Anzula For Better or Worsted to knit another Annabella’s cowl. It makes a great travel project.
She began a Flat Foot Floogie (that’s just fun to say ~ try it). She is making a lamb and knit up to the first paw. The yarn is Cascade 128 Superwash (Bulky: 100% Merino, 128 yards).

Jane T. came in ready to divide for sleeves on her (top down) Essence Pullover in Tahoe (Aran: 32% Nylon, 27% Wool, 25% Alpaca, 16% Yak, 179 yards). She was a bit disoriented by the process. After she removed the sleeves, I turned the sweater right side up so she could get a clearer understanding.
Michelle (in her classic pose) with her nearly completed Gacoco Baby Blanket in Plymouth Select Superwash (Worsted: 100% Merino 218 yards).
She found a sweater that she can use for a long ago stashed yarn, Royal Alpaca (Worsted: 100% Alpaca, 220 yards). The pattern is called the Llama ll Sweater.

Kathy joined us today to go over knitting directions (for the neck/shoulder shaping) for the Simple Tee, that she found a bit confusing. I wrote out the directions row by row, treating it like a math story problem. Remember those? I could never remember what color the bus driver’s eyes were. Later on Kathy got back to me that she worked both shoulders of the front at the same time and it came out correctly.
