Contangled

Cornelia wore her finished Customfit sweater on Tuesday.  In a word: stunning! She is getting well deserved compliments where ever she goes, including the man at the bank!

 Yarn: Artyarns Ensemble Light (DK: 50% Silk, 50% Cashmere, 400 yards).

She continues to make progress on her Customfit Scotland sweater in Mushishi (Worsted: Worsted: 95% Wool, 5% Silk, 491 yards).

Trammi is working on a cabled sweater shirt in Anzula Cricket (DK: 80% Merino, 10% Nylon, 10% Cashmere, 250 yards).  She had a feeling the charts were wrong in her pattern. In the picture of the sweater, the cables are reversed.  In the chart, a portion of the cable in one of the charts is not reversed.  We were both feeling weary at the prospect of redoing the chart and/or rewriting the instructions to reflect the reverse cable directions. Danni saved the day by explaining that she could scan the chart and flip it on the computer.  OUTSTANDING.


Jane asked Trammi how the gift she knitted for a teacher was received.  The woman loved the wrap so much that she changed her dress (for a wedding in Maine) to match the Outline shawl. That’s a sincere show of gratitude!

She is knitting along on Easy Folded Poncho and LOVING her Interchangeable Dreamz Circular needles.
 


Calann hadn’t worked on her poncho in a couple of weeks and wanted to revisit where she was in the yoke shaping.


Mary continues to work on her customfit tunic. She/we had a momentary panic when we thought she was knitting a second right front. She coined a new word for us, contangled, confused and tangles.  After rummaging through the pieces she knit, we were relieved to learn she was in fact knitting the left front. Yarn: Classic Elite Yarns Seedling (Aran: 100# Cotton, 110 yards).


Randy finished knitting Pietra in Berroco Ultra Alpaca (Worsted: 50% Wool, 50% Alpaca, 215 yards).  Today she was painstakingly taking out the provisional cast on so she could work the 3 needle bind off for the side seams. 

 It was totally worth it.  Look how nicely the border lines up.


On Wednesday, Eileen, wasn’t sure the if the left arm piece of her  L’Enveloppe in Misti Alpaca Qolla Worsted (Worsted: 80% Wool, 20% Alpaca, 218 yards) was coming out correctly.  Mine looked the same.  It stems from the slipped stitches/short rows.


Lois is nearly done with one of the fronts of her Beech Hill.

On Tuesday we discussed the mystery of needle size numbering? Why are there no size 12 or 14 knitting needles?  It did a quick google search and didn’t find much.  One person said it had to do with matching the metric numbering of needles.  More often the answer is the age old and time tested, “it is, what it is”. If anyone learns the reason, please let me know!
