Fall must be coming!

Calann is knitting the Building Blocks Afghan in Plymouth Select Worsted Merino (Worsted: 100% Merino, 218 yards). She dropped a stitch and Block #6.

In the meantime, she started Block #7. She commented that this has been a great knitting summer because it’s been so hot, she hasn’t gone to the beach as much.

Calann swatched with Valley Yarns Northampton from her stash (Worsted: 100% Wool, 247 yards) for the Tafsut Poncho. Her gauge was too tight and she had to go up a needle size.

She finished the Stocking Cap F797  knit with Knitcol (DK: 100% Washable Wool, 137 yards). Eleanor brought in the communal tassel maker.

Eleanor blocked Bibbe and joined the shoulders with a 3-needle bind off. The sweater fits nicely. We measured how long to knit the sleeves. She’ll try it on again to confirm the sleeve length. Yarn: The Fibre Co. Arranmore Light (DK: 80% Merino, 10% Silk, 10% Cashmere).

Here is the latest picture of her Tot Toppers Favorite Blanket in Plymouth Select Worsted Merino. We all LOVE this blanket.

Jane finished one Double Basketweave Infinity Scarf in Sincere Sheep Terroir Fiber Series (Sport: 100% Cormo, 400 yards).

Now she’s casting on for another with Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk (Sport: 50% Silk, 50% Alpaca, 146 years) from her stash. 

Her Lucy Cowl knit with Lux Adorna Knits Fun Bundle Kit (DK: 100% Cashmere, 200 yards) is coming along beautifully. We all love the red pop of color she put in with a mini skein of 7th Floor Yarns.
Cornelia is well into the second front of her Customfit sweater in Knitting Fever Painted Cotton (DK: 100% Cotton, 357 yards).

Allison blocked out her Fairisle Pillow knit with Northlight Fibers Atlantic (Worsted: 100% Falkland Islands Merino Wool, 170 yards). She’s debating whether to knit the back or have a fabric back.  For fabric we discussed linen or canvas. Thoughts?

To combat the air conditioning, she put on her newly blocked and finished Sparkle Ridges Wrap knit with  Artyarns Beaded Silk & Sequins Light and Artyarns Merino Cloud in The Wildflower colorway. 

Allison and Nan were joining The Weekender in the round. Their tubular cast ons look fantastic! Yarn: Juniper Moon Farm Neve (Worsted: 100% Cotton, 222 yards).

Eileen was casting on for Mixology in blues. When she received the kit from Kitterly, the colors were more turquoise than blue. She will knit on. Yarn: Baah! La Jolla (Fingering: 100% Wool, 400 yards).

She put on her newly blocked and finished Churchmouse Twice Reversible Ribbed Poncho knit with North Light Fibers Atlantic.

Nan finished her Streetscape Scarf. There was one small blip she wasn’t happy with. We all agreed that when she’s all wrapped up in it, it will not be noticeable.

Thing #2 got a new kitten, and I had to share. This is the video when Simba met the kitten, Jasper. Simba was not amused.

The next day, having made it clear who was in charge, Simba settled in to forcefully bathe Jasper.
