This is the Song that Never Ends…

and it goes on and on, like Jane’s Lux Adorna Knits Striped Scarf. Yarn: (DK: 100% Cashmere, 140 yards). She feels like this is the scarf that never ends. The saving grace is that is is Cashmere!

Eileen must have picked up a stitch in the ladder between stitches of her Sari, not Sari. Unfortunately, there is no way to fudge/fix this; she had to rip it back. Or rather, I ripped it back. ūüėú Yarn: Hedgehog Fibres Cashmere/Merino (Lace: 50% Merino, 50% Cashmere, 328 yards).
She’s enjoying her easy project: Churchmouse¬†Twice Reversible Ribbed Poncho in Northlight Fibers Atlantic (Worsted: 100% Falkland Islands Merino Wool, 170 yards).

 Cornelia was zipping along on her customfit cardigan until she came to a tiny knot in the ball. She had to unknit the row, cut the knot out, and then add the yarn back like starting a new ball. Unfortunately it is an accepted industry standard to have up to 3 knots in a ball/skein.  This was a momentary delay, and she is loving the way the yarn is knitting up. Yarn: Knitting Fever Painted Cotton (DK: 100% Cotton, 357 yards).

We were all happy to catch up with Trammi, who returned after a hiatus. She had to revisit her projects to figure out where she was.

Humphrey Bear knit with Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (Worsted: 100% Wool – Targhee-Columbia, 140 yards).

She questioned whether she should reknit the Viola Pom-Pom Ear Flap Hat. She changed the yarn (weight) that the pattern called for and the hat feels a little too mushy. After doing some research, she’s going to reknit it holding the yarn double.

Trammi is working on the Urban Ranch Shawl in Berroco Suede (Worsted: 100% Nylon, 120 yards). It will likely be a teacher gift.

She picked up the Anemone Poncho she started last year and reacquainted herself with the pattern. Yarns: Artyarns Regal Silk and Artyarns Beaded Silk & Sequins Light. She has been knitting this in the Portuguese Knitting method and was happy the technique came back to her.

Jane remarked that it’s “like typing and sex” you don’t forget. The rest of us were more accustomed to the phrase “it’s like riding a bike” Although we got a good chuckle from her analogy.

Lastly, she has the Zickzack Scarf on the needles. I absolutely love how it is coming out using two different colorways of Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino (KPPPM) (Fingering: 100% Merino, 175 yards).

It’s a good thing she’s picking up her knitting again! She has a full complement of projects to knit.

Classic Harry/Tucker pose.
