Last week I spent a whirlwind few days in Connecticut. I literally came in on the heels of one storm and left on the heels of the next storm.
She hadn’t gotten very far on the front, when she noticed a hole. She had inadvertently picked up and added a stitch. Since she wasn’t that far along, she decided to rip it back.

Jane B is working on the Cashmere Ombre Wrap from Purl Soho. Yarn: Jade Sapphire 4-ply Mongolian Cashmere (Fingering: 100% Cashmere, 200 yards).
She also brought two incredible garments her mother knit. They were really special. There is even embroidery on the dress.
These garments made me think of two ski sweaters I have that my mother knit and steeked when she was twenty-something. I’ll have to bring them in for show & tell.

Eleanor is knitting a Roo Fire Truck Roll Neck sweater with a (green) fire engine for her grandson because his dad is a Volunteer Fireman and rides in a green firetruck. How sweet is that?!
Calann had a lot of projects to review. First off, she has finished knitting a wedding garter from the Set of Wedding Accessories to Knit Pattern and has all the accoutrements for finishing it. She is graciously going to share what’s left with me. That’s incentive enough to cast on for the one I have to knit. This is the same garter Mary knit for her (four) daughters-in-law.
Next there was a Simple Lace Cowl she is knitting with Plymouth Incan Spice (Fingering: 45% Merino, 25% Alpaca, 15% Yak, and 15% Silk, 218 yards). She wasn’t sure if her stitch count was right.
Lastly there was some forensic detective work involved on a Rowan Sweater she started years ago. We were able to determine where she left off. Now she can revisit it!

Cindy is running on yarn fumes while she knits the border of her Elephants on Parade blanket. She was off in her border stitch. She thought she was supposed to be knitting Moss when really she had knit Seed all along. We got it sorted out.
Jane T worked on the sleeve of her son’s sweater. Yarn: Cascade 220 (Worsted: Superwash Wool, 220 yards).
