From the 9:00 am group….
Mary continues to knit her LGBTQ+Equality for Shawl.
We helped her pick the order of her colors. When joining a new color, she has to join it on the second stitch since the first is a slip stitch.
She’s back working on her Noro Log Cabin Afghan (it was missing for a few weeks).
Peggy ripped out her Night Bamboo Shawl and cast on again. She had some random acts of ribbing in the moss stitch. The project is a no-brainer until you need your brain. This time around she’ll mark the right side. Maybe even a lifeline here or there.
She was nearly done with the back of her son’s sweater, Parapet, when she noticed a mistake. To leave it in and keep knitting or rip it back, that is the question? What would you do? She ripped it back and is almost back to the short rows.
Calann is almost done with Raya’s Blanket knit with Amano Sami.
Cornelia had to rip back her colorblock Easy Folded Poncho.
Eleanor has finished the body of the Finnegan Striped Cardigan knit with West Yorkshire Spinners Bo Peep Pure. She’s onto the second sleeve. Calann asked why she didn’t knit the sleeves at the same time. Eleanor said it gets confusing (I feel the same way). She also modified the pattern to work a 3-needle bind-off for the shoulders.
She’s making progress on her Quiet Journey Shawl that she’s knitting with Hedgehog Fibres DK.
Eleanor decided upon the project she’s going to knit for Christmas presents, Hampton Avenue. I admire her early start.
From the 6:30 pm group…
Lynn has finished sewing the strips of her Building in Color Afghan
and has begun the edging.
Christine had blocked her strips and was ready to learn the mattress stitch.
While she was knitting her dog came to inspect her progress.
She finished knitting the Simple Ribbed Hat for her husband.
Amy was ready to start the short row strip on the Building in Color Afghan. I re-wrote the strip to use German Short Rows.
