If Calann isn’t happy, no one is happy

Jane has about 8″ left to knit on her Easy Folded Poncho in Juniper Moon Farm Zooey (DK: 60% Cotton, 40% Linen / Flax, 284 yards).

She’s swatching for Weekender Class in Juniper Moon Farm Neve (Worsted: 100% Cotton, 222 yards.

Eleanor finished another F797 Baby & Kids Stocking Cap and was making a new tassel. Yarn: Adriafil Knitcol (DK: 100% Washable Wool, 137 yards).

We picked out colors for Tot Toppers Favorite Cap & Blanket Set in Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash (Worsted: 100% Merino, 218 yards).

Calann started the same hat and thought it looked too big (for the same size) based on Eleanor’s hat. She decided to rip it out and begin again. Bummer.

Her Elephants on Parade blanket was back from the finisher. Someone in the class wondered if over time, the embossed elephants would flatten. Calann doesn’t care, just as long as it looks good on presentation. Yarn: Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash (Worsted: 100% Merino Superwash, 218 yards).


Calann finished the first two squares of her Building Blocks Afghan. She started the bobble square. Initially she liked bobbles. However, after the first set of bobbles, she was missing a stitch. I taught her how to take out a bobble row by inserting the needle into the stitch it stemmed from (protecting it) and then pull out the bobble.

Personally, I don’t like bobbles. Jane kind of jinxed Calann because she doesn’t like bobbles either. Calann had some serious struggles with this square. She kept going into an extra stitch by accident which threw off her stitch count.

In the end, I put markers around the intended bobble stitch to stop her from going into a second stitch. It worked and Calann announced, “I just might make it through this. I’m much happier than I was.” If Calann isn’t happy, no one is happy.

Cornelia is enjoying the colors of her current Customfit Sweater in Knitting Fever Painted Cotton (DK: 100% Cotton, 357 yards).
Allison observed that the people who knit garter projects never have a problem, and are pleasant to be with. In her enthusiasm to finish a project, she bound off on Matchmaker too soon. She thought it looked smaller than the (ravelry) pictures. She had to take it out the bind off and continue knitting! Yarn: Anzula Dreamy (Fingering: 75% Merino, 15% Cashmere goat, 10% Silk, 385 yards) and Anzula Lunaris (Fingering: 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere goat, 10% Stellina, 425 yards).

Last week Elisa took my Intro to Brioche Class. She was cruising along and then made a mistake in her Brioche Infinity Scarf just for me. She’s thoughtful like that.😜 There was a dropped yarnover and she inadvertently worked two stitches together. Yarn: Anzula For Better or Worsted (Worsted: 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere goat, 10% Nylon, 200 yards).
Trammi was working on the Sea of Dreams baby blanket in Nordica (DK: 100% Merino, 136 yards) for a gift.

She cast on for my Read Between the Lines Scarf in Yarn Catcher 463 Sock (Fingering: 75% Merino, 25% Nylon, 463 yards).

While I was away for the weekend, Thing #2 looked after the beasty boys. She took Harry for a bath. That face!
