Top

I don’t burp without checking in.

So said Calann before continuing on with her Tressage top. It’s a lot of responsibility to have this kind of power. 😔

She wanted to confirm that she was interpreting the directions properly where it referred to repeating the last 8 rounds.

Twist it Magazine, August 2015
Calann was inspired by a top that Trammi knit.

Trammi is loving her ZickZack scarf in Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino (KPPPM) (Fingering: 100% Merino, 175 yards). It is a perfect traveling project.

Lisa knit up a healthy swatch in Blue Sky Fibers Extra (Aran: 55% Alpaca, 45% Merino, 218 yards) for a customfit sweater.

Then we checked the gauge on the Simple Sprout Sweater she is knitting in the round. Lisa thought the sweater looked small and she was right. She knits tightly and had to go up from a #11 needle to a #15. Yarn: Berroco Catena (Bulky: 94% Merino, 6% Nylon, 120 yards).

Allison worked on the lace trim on her 2 ply Cashmere Cardigan. (I forgot to get a picture 😠)

Eileen finished her Cameo Scarf/Wrap in Berroco Nebula (Fingering: 100% Merino, 415 yards) and Berroco Folio (DK: 65% Alpaca, 35% Rayon, 219 yards).

Then we checked the gauge for Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Baby Surprise Jacket.

Cornelia worked on the short row neck for her #23 Cabled Tunic.  The neck is knit separately with two different cables and short rows, as you can imagine this is very complicated. To her credit, Cornelia has persevered; she gets major points for that. However, it reached a point of such frustration that I took it off her hands.

Michelle crochet the Purl Soho Granny stripe blanket. She couldn’t find a knit version, she wants her own Blankie.  We are going to play around with stitches and design something.  (And when I say we I mean Michelle),

Nan finished her Anemone Poncho knit with Artyarns Regal Silk  and  Artyarns Beaded Silk & Sequins Light. She felt that the neck came out to tight.  She’s going to pull out the bind off and use Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off.

Maggiknits

She saw the Drinnsbay Irish Tweed Wrap by Maggi Knits on a woman going up the escalator at VKLive in New York City. It’s only available as a kit through Maggiknits shop.

She’s working a tube as a transition to the next color, Very unique construction.

Lois is knitting the Bedford Top the way it’s written is versus her previous interpretation. She’s finding it easier to knit, in a good spot. In her happy place.

Here is Tucker’s happy place.  Can you tell which end is up?
