You know how when dinner is served everyone is suddenly silent while they begin to eat? So it goes when everyone is concentrating and/or counting at the knitting table.
She has left over Kid Paillettes (burgundy yarn) from her customfit sweater and picked up two colors of Kidsilk haze (Lace: 70% Mohair, 30% Silk, 229 yards). She is going to knit Margaret’s Trains, Plains, and Automobiles scarf. The order the are pictured in is the order in which they will be knit in the scarf. It will be a beauty!

Here are some pictures of Allison’s nieces wearing her knitted gifts. These happy faces make the knitting/gifting all worthwhile.

Yarn: Blue Sky Fibers Techno (Bulky: 68% Alpaca, 22% Silk, 10% Wool, 120 yards).
Cornelia has happily embarked on the front of her Vivacious Hi-Lo Pullover. She felt as if the back took forever. The front is shorter (hence the name), so it shouldn’t take as long. Meanwhile she is scouting her next project. Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash (Worsted: 100% superwash wool, 220 yards).

Cindy cast on and joined in the round for the Churchmouse Shoulder Cozy. Rather than holding Kidsilk Haze double, she is knitting it with Tahki Zona (Aran: 35% Cotton, 28% Wool, 26% Acrylic, 11% Nylon, 119 yards).
It truly defies description.
