To knit or not to knit, that was the question.

 Well, it’s never been my question! Read on for Linda’s inner struggle ~ and the struggle is real!

Cindy was back after a summer hiatus. She’s knitting The Simple and Easy Hat for the Whole Family, for her grandson. Yarn: Anzula For Better or Worsted (Worsted: 80% Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon, 200 yards).

Nan knit up the most adorable Aran Cable Baby Bunting

Cornelia brought her sweater in to the finisher and began her Super Bulky Afghan (Westport Yarns shop pattern) in Mirasol Ushya (Super Bulky: 98% Merino, 2% Nylon, 114 yards). She is bravely knitting on circular needles, they are not her favorite.

Jane is knitting a 3-color striped scarf. 

She was ready to graft the ends of her Lucy Cowl knit with Lux Adorna Fun Size Bundles DK (DK: 100% Cashmere, 200 yards).  By the end of class it was done!

Eileen began the All Points South Poncho in a combination of yarns. Stunning! Perfectly autumn.

And on Wednesday…

Linda took a 3.5 year hiatus from knitting. 😱 Now that her daughter is expecting her second child, Linda was faced with a moral dilemma. She had a deep internal philosophical discussion with herself. To knit or not to knit. It’s not like the second baby would know didn’t get a blanket. In the end grandparent guilt won out. AND SHE’S BACK!

Together we picked out the Easy Baby Car Seat Blanket in Hayfield Baby Blossom Chunky (Bulky: 100% Acrylic, 170 yards). Emphasis on the word EASY. The yarn is kind of cool, the way it’s dyed, it creates little blossoms.

Thank goodness Linda’s hands remembered how to cast on and knit.

Mary began a hat in Rasta (Super Bulky: 100% Merino, 90 yards). As you can imagine, it’s coming along quickly. Mary knits in bed, and told us that she tried it on and promptly fell asleep. I guess she was warm and cozy in the hat. Her husband woke her up to point it out!😜😂

She’s halfway through a baby blanket for a baby due in November. The pattern is a Westport Yarn Shop Pattern knit with KFI Luxury Collection Indulgence Hand Painted Worsted.

In addition to all that, she’s finished the next part of her Crocheted Eshana Wrap. It’s off to the finisher to be blocked before she starts the next section. This is quite an accomplishment! She used the exact yarns the pattern called for, this was a class this summer at Westport Yarns.

Lois was working on Washington Square, a gorgeous mosaic cowl knit with  Malabrigo Worsted (Aran: 100% Merino, 210 yards).

Today’s blog pet pictures are brought to you by Thing #2 who happened to be sending me pix of her cats while I was writing.

First we have Simba, not too happily modeling a sombrero. Oh, it cat’s could talk…

And then there’s the baby, Jasper. He is just too cute for words!
