As Winnie the Pooh says, it’s friendlier with two

The Jane’s saved the day by working together.

You see,  Mary was happily knitting her Easy Breezy Dress until she hit a bit of a snag in her yarn…

Or a big tangle as the case would be.  I worked on it for a bit. It was really the two Jane’s who saved the day.

Prior to stepping up to the tangle, Jane B. was swatching for my Sailboat Colorblock Cardigan in Shelter (Worsted: 100% Targhee-Columbia, 140 yards). She was getting 17.32/4″  on an #8 needle and needs to be 15/4″. She swatched on a #9 and got 16 sts/4″. I’ll modify the pattern for her.

Jane T. continues to work on the sleeve of her daughter’s sweater coat. Yarn: Cascade 220 (Worsted: Superwash Wool, 220 yards).

Eleanor is swatched and ready for Motif. The pattern is solely charted which will be an adventure. She’ll put in markers to make it easier to follow the repeats.

She finished her Cameo Scarf/Wrap in Berroco Nebula (Fingering: 100% Merino, 415 yards) and Berroco Folio (DK: 65% Alpaca, 35% Rayon, 219 yards). She did a lovely job with this scarf/wrap. It is totally outside her color “box” and I think she will truly enjoy it. It is like a summer sunset.

Before she blocks it, she asked me to tack in one dropped stitch.

Nan wove in ends on her Trendsetter Boxed Rib T Scarf before sending it to the finisher to be blocked. That made sense since she was a “captive audience” in class. Yarn: Transitions Lux Kit (Light Fingering: 49% Cotton, 47% Acrylic, 4% Metallic, 620 yards).

Then she picked up her chevron blanket. This is such a crisp looking pattern stitch. Yarn: Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash (Worsted: 100% Merino, 218 yards).

Calann had questions on her top down sweater in Anzula Dreamy ( Fingering: 75% Merino Wool, 15% Cashmere, 10% Silk, 385 yards).

She needed a unknit stitch fixed on another top down. Yarn: Anzula Cricket (DK: 80% Merino, 10% Nylon, 10% Cashmere, 250 yards).

Lastly, we reviewed the decreases her Christmas Stocking.

Cornelia is cruising along on her Customfit sweater vest in Plymouth Gina (Worsted: 100% Wool, 109 yards) 

Always leave them smiling. Happy dog and purple flowers.
