Michelle was looking to find patterns for stash yarn. We found Falls of Foyers wrap for Madelintosh Pashmina (Sport: 75% Merino, 15% Silk, 10% Cashmere goat, 360 yards).
She is ready to sew her Building Blocks Afghan together. We played musical squares until we got the look we liked.
Lois wanted an opinion on her gauge in Warmi (Worsted: 70% Alpaca, 30% Merino, 164 yards) for the Building Blocks Afghan.
She cast on for the Bernat Family Ties Skinny Tie for her husband, but was finding it really hard to work the p1, k1 increase same stitch. The yarn wasn’t right for the pattern and we agreed she should knit him a hat instead!
She was finding the pompoms she made with the clover pompom maker kind of wimpy. When I showed her how to make them we discovered it was user error. 😜 In her defense, the directions on the package leave a little to be desired.
She’s cruising on her Building in Color afghan in Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash (Worsted: 100% Merino, 218 yards).
Mary had a question about the decrease row on her Urban Ranch Shawl in Berroco Suede: (Worsted: 100% Nylon, 120 yards). The yarn is sticky, you have to either have a manicure or moisture your hands.
