After the party…


After we ate and drank at my going away party, we did get down to some knitting.

Trammi was knitting the French Cowl in Anny Blatt Absolu (DK: 100% Angora, 137 yards). She is knitting them up for gifts.

There was a run on pompoms for my Rock the Pompom hat. Trammi found a beautiful mauve pompom and I found a rich color of Malabrigo Worsted to go with it (Aran: 100% Merino, 210 yards).

Calann, Eleanor and Mallory picked the same color of Azteca Milrayes for the Rock the Pompom hat (Aran: 53% Wool, 47% Acrylic, 197 yards).

Eleanor is also knitting the Katia Infinity Shawl in Katia Infinity Shawl Yarn (Fingering: 656 yards). She’s looking forward to the colors unfolding as the shawl progresses. 
Eileen is knitting the Linus Shawl in Miss Babs Estrellita (Fingering: 92% Merino, 8% Metallic, 400 yards). This is a great, easy pattern for an asymmetric shawl and it can work for any weight yarn, you just have to adjust the needle size.

Cornelia’s Easy Folded Poncho, which is really going to be a wrap, is off to the finisher to be blocked. Yarn: Modern Cotton (DK: 60% Cotton, 40% Rayon, 335 yards).

She is swatching for her next Customfit sweater in Manos del Uruguay Alegria (Fingering: 75% Merino, 25% Nylon, 445 yards).


Cornelia wore her first Customfit sweater that she knit in Malabrigo Worsted. She has accessorized beautifully, of course.

Jane is knitting the Oscar Cowl by Danni in KFI Luxury Collection Albina (Bulky: 80% Nylon, 20% Polyester, 383 yards). It’s a Westport Yarns pattern free with purchase of the yarn.

Cindy cast on for a Simple Gathered hat from the Simple & Easy Hat for the Whole Family.

Allison finished another Tucker Hat holding Plymouth Baby Alpaca Chunky double (Bulky: 100% Baby Alpaca, 110 yards). We all loved how her pompom came out.

Calann checked in on her Tressage Sweater, she’s knitting one of the sleeves. Yarn: Anzula Squishy (Fingering: 80% Merino, 10% Cashmer, 10% Nylon, 385 yards).

I re-measured her swatch, for the life of me, I cannot remember what she is knitting. Which is fine, because she couldn’t remember what I said when I measured the same swatch last week. 😏
Apparently Harry held that pose for 10 minutes.
