She finished the dress she started last week in Manos Stria (Worsted: 100% Cotton, 116 yards). I love the colors she chose combined with the texture of the Stria.
One will be with Berroco Nebula (Fingering: 100% Merino, 116 yards) combined with Artyarns Regal Silk (Worsted: 100% Silk, 165 yards), the other will be Nebula and Berroco Folio (DK: 65% Alpaca, 35% Rayon, 219 yards). The blue of the Regal Silk perfectly picks up the blue in the Nebula.
Cornelia didn’t like how one side was missing a cable in the front of her sweater, so she’s taking it back to the beginning of the neck shaping to re-knit it and insert the cable.
Yarn: Plymouth Baby Alpaca Chunky (Chunky: 100% Baby Alpaca, 108 yards). Happily, she now continues onto the sleeves.
Calann picked up an extra stitch in one of the cable sections in her sweater; she saw the hole and knew it didn’t belong there.
She shared her progress on her Ann Norling #1018, Knitted Christmas Stocking. You can just see the beginning of the Angel’s head and the tips of her wings,
Eleanor is knitting the newest rendition of the Easy Folded Poncho – Modern Cotton Colorblocked Version.
She wound a gorgeous skein of Miss Babs Yowza (Worsted: 100% Merino, 560 yards). We were all smitten with it. I have a skein of Yowza that I plan on knitting the Gaga Shroud with.

Mary and I discussed the pattern for the crocheted doily purse she is working on.
