Who said knitting slows down in the Spring?

Trammi hadn’t knit since last week so she was getting acquainted with the Anemone Poncho pattern.

Calann was missing a stitch and it turned out to be a missing a yarn over. She had a stitch marker where she thought the problem was but didn’t realize that it was it.
She dropped a stitch in the cast on of her Tressage Top Project and has to cast on again. Theoretically she could leave it, and knit on ~ however ~ we can’t be sure it can be finessed away later.  As annoying as it is to cast on, yet again, it’s the right thing to do.

Cornelia is almost done with the second sleeve of her Hi Lo Vivacious Pullover then it’s ready for finisher.

She is swatched and ready for her next sweater in Baby Alpaca Grande (Bulky: 100% Alpaca, 110 yards). The sweater is a boxy cabled sweater, #23-Cabled Tunic.

Mallory continued to work on the jogless stripes on the 21 Color Slouch hat.
Eleanor didn’t like how the pullover in worsted weight came out for the baby gift.  She’s going to knit another Little Boater Crew in Zara (DK: 100% Merino, 137 yards).  DK weight yarn knits up looking a little more elegant.

Allison is in the process of knitting the right front and left back (or is it the left front and right back) 😜 of her 2 ply Cashmere Jacket knit with Artyarns Merino Cloud (Fingering: 80% Merino, 20% Cashmere, 400 yards.)

Since she ripped it back last week, she was concerned that the yarn was all curly and that it would affect the look of the finished sweater.  To her credit, she steamed the bottom half of her knitting to make sure it would work.  Well played!


Danni shared with us a cool looking scarf called Quadrilinear which looks great in a tonal yarn.

And on Wednesday,


Eileen cast on for the Cameo scarf and learned how to knit picot stitch. Yarn: Cascade Heritage Sock (Fingering: 75% Merino, 25% Nylon, 437 yards) and Berroco Nebula (Fingering: 100% Merino, 416 yards).

She’s going to knit her Broderie Anglaise Shawl larger rather than have leftover yarn.

Michelle is almost done knitting On the Spice Market shawl/scarf in Brooklyn Tweed Arbor (DK: 100% Targhee, 145 yards).

She’s enjoying using up stash knitting squares for her Building Blocks Afghan.

Lois has been busy! She finished knitting the Churchmouse Shoulder Cozy in stash yarn.


And, she finished knitting my ASAP Infinity Wrap knit holding two strands of yarn together to get a marled effect. Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Brush and Plymouth Yarn Gina Chunky.
 

We agreed that both were bound off to tight. I took out the bind off and next time we meet will bind off using Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy bind off (she didn’t have the yarn with her).

Now she is swatching for my Bedford Top,

 

knit with Stacy Charles Fine Yarns Stella.
