Knitting with a (safety) net.

Do the projects you take on vary based on your available (knitting) support?  In talking about the projects we are working on, Jane said to Calann “do you realize that you only knit crazy stuff?” Calann answered,  “I do crazy because I’m with Pam, I don’t do stockinette stitch without Pam.”

Her Tressage top got to a tricky section where she had to split for the front and back which are worked separately. She has a lot of markers to keep track of the cable sections so it took some figuring out. Yarn: (Fingering: 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon, 394 yards).

She started knitting the Unice Unicord Hood.

How cute is this? If I knit this for another daughter, I’d have a unicorn and a mermaid. Not going to happen.


Jane finished her Newsprint Cowl in Purl Soho Line Weight Heather (Light Fingering: 100% Merino, 494 yards). You can see that her jogless stripes improved as she went along. By the time she was in the last third of the cowl, it was perfect.

She cast on and began working on her Sailboat Colorblock Cardigan in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (Worsted: 100% Targhee-Columbia, 140 yards).

Allison Cameo Scarf/Wrap is knitting up nicely. Yarns: Berroco Nebula (Fingering: 100% Merino, 415 yards) and Berroco Folio (DK: 65% Alpaca, 35% Rayon, 219 yards).

Cornelia added a button hole on her customfit vest. We have to figure out how she wants the neck to be. For now, she is putting the right front aside while working on left front until we decide. Yarn: Plymouth Gina (Worsted: 100% Wool, 109 yards)

Lisa’s Suede Wrap looks great. This is a nice, easy project to knit up. Yarn: Berroco Suede: (Worsted: 100% Nylon, 120 yards)

Trammi hasn’t knit in a while since she’s been caught up in the back to school rush of activities. Thankfully she takes excellent notes and it wasn’t difficult to see where she left off on her Anemone Poncho. Yarns: Artyarns Regal Silk and Artyarns Beaded Silk & Sequins Light.
