Can I grope your yarn?

Jane put in her contrast color in her Easy Folded Poncho knit with Juniper Moon Farm Zooey (DK: 60% Cotton, 40% Linen / Flax, 284 yards).

Calann finished her Sparkling Ridges Wrap, knit with Artyarns Beaded Silk & Sequins Light and Artyarns Merino Cloud.

She finished her Emilia Poncho in Nordica (DK: 100% Merino, 136 yards). It’s going off to the finisher.

She brought her granddaughter, Olivia’s, knitting. She’s 6 years old and had a mistake in her knitting. Calann told her she’d bring it to her teacher. Olivia asked, “is your teacher a really-really good knitter?”. 😉 I hope I measure up to her expectations. She made an illegal u-turn (turning her knitting mid-row). I ripped it back and then knit up to where she was so she wouldn’t be disappointed at how far back her mistake was.

Cornelia has nick-named her Customfit sweater, the Forest Gump sweater. You never know what’s going to come next. That being said, it is ready to go off to the finisher. Yarn: Knitting Fever Painted Cotton (DK: 100% Cotton, 357 yards).

Her buttons are perfect.

She’s starting the same sweater again, in a different colorway.
Mallory finished her wreath stocking, complete with bells.

She is starting her fifteenth Christmas Stocking for one of her daughters! She’s making different colored snow flakes.

One of her stitches at the end of a snowflake point was missing. I used the yarn to work a duplicate stitch.
Mary Ellen joined us for the first time today. She brought several projects. The first one is her finished Building Blocks afghan! It looks great! Yarn: (Worsted: 100% Plymouth Superwash Merino, 218 yards).

There was a bit of messy business on one of the ends. I was able to weave it in neatly.

She had a couple of issues with the baby blanket she’s knitting with KFI Indulgence Hand Painted Yarn (Worsted: 100% Wool, 240 yards). She made an illegal u-turn too.

And an unknit stitch. Two rows had to rip out. She asked if she could “grope” her neighbor’s yarn. Everyone replied, yes, of course, we are gropers. 😊

She was off pattern in her Sequence Knitting Scarf, luckily she had put in lifelines and could rip back to one of them. Yarn: (Worsted: 100% Plymouth Superwash Merino, 218 yards).

She thought she was off pattern in her Mosaic strip of her Building in Color afghan, but it was fine. Yarn: (Worsted: 100% Plymouth Superwash Merino, 218 yards).

Mallory shared her book groups list with us (thanks!). It’s a bit long and worth it.
