On Tuesday, Debra joined us. She has recently moved to the area and is a relatively new knitter. She is knitting a Mohair Capelet and wanted to review decreases. Among her priorities when she moved were finding a yoga class, a house cleaner, and a knitting class (and not necessarily in that order).
We got into a discussion about how long we have had yarn in our stash and that there are not enough years to knit everything in stash.
Now she is starting Exploration Station. Not so much because she’ll wear it, because of the skills she will learn knitting it. She has three colors of Anzula Dreamy and one skein of Koigu PPPM (Fingering: 100% Merino, 175 yards).
Michelle is almost done with the first Building Block that she is knitting from her stash.
Mary misread her Customfit directions and had to rip back to an inch above her ribbing. I felt her pain as I took out the front. She was a good sport about it. The pattern read, ‘start shaping 3″ from beginning’ (top half of picture) and she took it as 3″ from the beginning of the stockinette (bottom half of picture). As a result, the front was 3″ too long. It felt like playing a game of Chutes and Ladders.Yarn: Classic Elite Yarns Seedling (Aran: 100# Cotton, 110 yards).
