Cornelia wore her customfit sweater, otherwise known as her Scotland Sweater. After all the blood, sweat, and tears she went through, the sweater is a huge success. We were both absolutely delighted with how well it fits her. So excited in fact that we hugged three times. We will use the measurements in this sweater as a future template for other sweaters. Every time someone else arrived at class, she had to get up and take a bow.
Now onto current projects. Cornelia’s Azul Poncho is knitting up beautifully in Rasta (Super Bulky: 100% Merino, 90 yards). She found the perfect purple buttons that look like stockinette knit stitches.
Calann swatched for the Waffles Blanket in Plymouth Select Superwash Merino (Worsted: 100% Merino, 218 yards).
She also swatched for the Garter Yoke Baby Cardi in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino (Sport: 55% Wool, 33% Microfiber, 12% Cashmere, 137 yards).
Wednesday’s Stitch and Chat…
Eileen swatched for my Anemone Poncho in Artyarns Regal Silk (DK: 100% Silk, 163 yards)
She finished knitting her Big Fat Stratus Scarf . As I explained how to work the Kitchener Stitch (grafting two pieces of knitting together) her eyes glazed over. I took pity on her and grafted the scarf for her.
She also finished the Churchmouse Shoulder Cozy in an Angora yarn she had in her stash. It is so fluffy!!!
Michelle had a mis-stitch in her Two Color (Cotton) Cowl that she’s knitting with Juniper Moon Farms Stargazer (Sport: 75% Llama, 25% Silk, 218 yards).
Mary is knitting the same sweater in Artyarns Merino Cloud (Fingering: 80% Merino, 20% Cashmere, 436 yards).
