Jane had a “begeezer” (newly coined knitting term for mistake) in her Easy Folded Poncho. It looks like she dropped an edge stitch. Luckily it can be mended and put into the seam. Jane’s stripes worked out perfectly, they line up at the neckline seam. Yarn: Juniper Moon Farm Zooey (DK: 60% Cotton, 40% Linen / Flax, 284 yards).
Eleanor wore her Nurmilintu scarf in Anzula Dreamy (Fingering: 75% Merino, 15% Cashmere, 10% Silk, 385 yards).
Eleanor finished her blanket for the Alice’s Embrace Charity knitting project Westport Yarns has organized.
She finished the back of her current Customfit sweater, this sweater is named Forest Fire. The one she is wearing is called Lemon and Lime sorbet. The next one will be called Blueberry Soufflé. Yarn: Yarn: Knitting Fever Painted Cotton (DK: 100% Cotton, 357 yards).
Allison was concerned she wouldn’t have enough yarn for the garter edge. I showed her how to estimate enough yarn for the bind off using the following steps.
- Working from the end of the ball, we wound off 5 times the length of the side to be bound off.
- Then we made a big slip knot so she would know when she reached the yarn for the bind off.
- We re-wound the ball.
- She can work as many rows of the border as her yardage allows until the giant slip knot.
- Bind off.
- We agreed there could be no yarn stores or knitting events to distract or tempt you.
- We could use our yarn as insulation.
- There would be an abundance of clam chowder and lobster.
We haven’t worked out the other details yet and are open to suggestions. If it becomes a thing, we’ll be looking for applicants for the second season.
