Do you have needle size "boundaries"?

Eileen is knitting the Cotton Super Cropped Cardigan pattern by Loopy Mango in Loopy Mango Big Cotton (Bulky: 100% Cotton, 48 yards). It is knit in one piece and she wanted to confirm where to join yarn for left front.

She finished a blanket for the Alice’s Embrace Charity knitting project at Westport Yarns.
Eileen finished her Twice Reversible Ribbed Poncho in North Light Fibers Atlantic (Worsted: 100% Falkland Islands Merino Wool, 170 yards).
She was enjoying knitting Goldfish Memory until she got to her variegated color choice. I think she’s going to consider other options and set it aside. Trammi was concerned for her knitting well being – “did she have other things to knit?.” Yarns: Once Upon a Corgi Oliver (Fingering: 100% Merino, 400 Yards) and 2 skeins of Anzula Dreamy (Fingering: 75% Merino, 15% Cashmere, 10% Silk, 385 yards).
We all agreed, if you don’t love it, don’t knit it. That applies to a pattern as well as yarn color.
Jane swatched for her upcoming Weekender Class with me. Yarn: Juniper Moon Farm Neve (Worsted: 100% Cotton, 222 yards).

 

She started her Lucy Cowl using a Lux Adorna Knits Fun Bundle Kit (DK: 100% Cashmere, 200 yards).

Eleanor modified the Tot Toppers Favorite Blanket to 14 ridges per section. Yarn: Plymouth Select Worsted Merino (Worsted: 100% Merino Superwash, 218 yards). She is alternating between Bibbe and the afghan. Kind of like eating your vegetables, knit the black sweater first, then fun time begins with blanket.
Elisa working on Vacanza in Berroco Medina (DK: 37% Cotton, 36% Acrylic, 27% Rayon, 295 yards). I modified the pattern to include a slip stitch on one side (I don’t like how garter looks as an edge). She forgot the slip stitch and had to rip back.
Trammi was knitting on her Sea of Dreams Baby blanket in Nordica (DK: 100% Merino, 136 yards). We are all enchanted by how lovely this pattern is.

Nan finished the intarsia part of her baby blanket in Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash. She will use duplicate stitch to add the finer details of the face.

Cornelia’s Customfit sweater is progressing nicely. Yarn: Knitting Fever Painted Cotton (DK: 100% Cotton, 357 yards).

There was a discussion of needle size preferences because Jane was getting gauge on a #9 and didn’t like how it felt. And I quote, “#8 is friendly, #9 not so much”.

When I met Eileen, she wouldn’t knit below an #8. Now her knitting as evolved to the point where she won’t knit on a needle smaller than a #3.

For Eleanor it was needles smaller than #7’s.

Harry was bored waiting for he dinner so he decided to sit on Tucker’s head. He has done this since he was a puppy!
