Jane made up for her lack of knitting last week and progressed to the gorgeous salmon contrast color of her 3 Color Cashmere Cowl in Lux Adorna (Sport: 100% Cashmere, 230 yards).
Allison modeled Jane’s finished Lucy Cowl knit with Lux Adorna Fun Size Bundles DK (DK: 100% Cashmere, 200 yards). Jane’s lucky that Allison relinquished the cowl! It was questionable for a minute there.
Cornelia is about halfway though her Super Bulky Afghan (Westport Yarns shop pattern) in Mirasol Ushya (Super Bulky: 98% Merino, 2% Nylon, 114 yards). The colors evoke a seaside Cape Cod feel.
Trammi came for a review of her projects. Her pink Sea of Dreams baby blanket in Nordica (DK: 100% Merino, 136 yards) is almost done. She’s knitting this as a gift for her kids piano teacher! She stopped mid-row and the knitting was all stretched out. I had to take it back a few rows. Moral of the story: Don’t stop mid-row.
The Zickzack scarf pattern is a good project to leave the in car for random acts of knitting while waiting. She’s knitting it with Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino (KPPPM) (Fingering: 100% Merino, 175 yards).
She has three other projects that we didn’t get to, her charity blanket for Alice’s Embrace, a long sweater coat, and a cabled sweater shirt. I suggested that she pick 3 of these projects and dedicate herself to finishing them so as not to spread herself to thin. (I should take my own advice.😏)
Nan worked the kitchener bind off on the neck of her Weekender sweater. Then she was able to join the shoulders with 3-needle bind offs. The end result…a very happy Nan who was able to try on her sweater! Yarn: Juniper Moon Farm Neve (Worsted: 100% Cotton, 222 yards).
In other Weekender Sweater news, Eleanor finished the short rows on her Weekender sweater and Allison was knitting on the upper back of hers.
Harry inspecting my Rhinebeck yarns. They must’ve smelled really good because he and Tucker tried to eat them! 😱
