Eleanor brought in yarn she bought years ago that has no planned pattern; something none of us do – ever
I showed her how to do a filtered Ravelry Search. The boxes on the left are filters (not in screen shot) and you can be as specific as you like, including yardage. The filters she chose are at the top of the picture. She chose the purple vest in the bottom middle picture.
She reached the point where she begins the inner bodice with her Plum Perfect Knit, Swirl Jacket. She is using Plymouth Select Superwash Merino (Worsted: 100% Superwash Merino, 218 yards) for the main color and Noro Kureyon (Worsted: 100% wool, 110 yards) as the contrast color.
Allison and I were both working on our Linen Stitch Scarves with 3 different colorways of Koigu PPPM (Fingering: 100% Superwash Merino, 175 yards).
She was working on the Baby’s Texture Blanket in Sublime Baby Cashmere DK (DK: 75% Merino, 20% Silk, 5% Cashmere, 127 yards). Allison is crocheting a border and learned how to work the duplicate stitch to put the first initial of the baby’s name on the blanket.
Jane took a crochet class last week and has been practicing to finesse her new found skills. Today we worked on counting stitches and finding that ever difficult last stitch.
Linda was onto the finishing for her Bunny Jacket. This sweater was started for her second granddaughter (who is now 11) and will be going to her fifth granddaughter who is 1.
Check out the perfect pewter bunny buttons!
She also cast on for the second Fetching fingerless glove in Noro Silk Garden (Aran: 45% Mohair, 45% Silk, 10% Wool, 110 yards).
I was swatching for the “Any Which Way You Can Multidirectional Tank Top” Class. The pattern is Axil by Norah Gaughan. I’m using a cotton yarn. In order to get gauge, I’m knitting on a #4 and purling with a #3. I’m doing this to avoid the random patches of larger stitches that pop up when I knit with plant fiber yarns. It stems from the purl stitch being a looser stitch.
