This is the sweater that Cornelia learned to swear on. We are very proud of both accomplishments😉. The #23 Cabled Tunic knit with Plymouth Baby Alpaca Chunky (Bulky: 100% Baby Alpaca, 110 yards).
She finished the back and has started on the front of her customfit sweater in Plymouth Gina (Worsted: 100% Wool, 109 yards).
It’s a great day for Allison, after swatching for Cameo she can go up two needle sizes and cast on with Berroco Nebula (Fingering: 100% Merino, 415 yards) and Berroco Folio (DK: 65% Alpaca, 35% Rayon, 219 yards).
Mary has finished knitting the yoke of her Easy Breezy Dress (Westport Yarns shop pattern) and finished knitting the sleeves. Now she’s ready to knit the body. Yarn: CoBaSi Plus (Worsted: 55% Cotton, 21% Nylon, 16% Bamboo, 8% Silk, 177 yards). She found this lovely print for the skirt.
She cast on for Westport Yarns Suede Shawl. Berroco Suede: (Worsted: 100% Nylon, 120 yards).
The question was raised, “Do you block your own pieces?”
Mary’s method of blocking is to place the piece under sofa cushions, whoever sits on it blocks it. 😜.
Eleanor’s method is more conventional, she places a plastic sheet on a bed and blocks on top of it.
I use my dining room table and blocking squares.
Nan is finishing knitting her Trendsetter Wrap in Transitions Lux (Light Fingering: 49% Cotton, 47% Acrylic, 4% Metallic, 620 yards).
She also started a Chevron Baby Blanket in Plymouth Worsted Merino (Worsted: 100% Merino, 218 yards).
