knitters, I think we need to Knit Like the Wind this fall.
The weather guys are predicting a Polar Vortex in
September. I feel like we need to get our warm knits
knitted and then knit some more...ha!
Collar is size 8 needle in garter. body is size 6.
So far so good. I think I will need a little help
with directions in a while. Bartlett yarn worsted.
I blocked the WendyKnits Summer Mystery Shawl.
I'm really glad I did not listen to Wendy's suggestion and not block.
I soaked for a long time. It actually enhanced my shawl.
I used German Short Rows.
and pinned the points
I'm almost done with the 2nd sock.
Ruth is working on a sweater for her son.
Jared Flood's Cobblestone pattern.
Madelinetosh merino in the a plaid Blanket colorway.
Martha is 99.2% done with her summer sweater!
Miley Tee. Multicolor is Queensland Dream.
She did a lot of her own mods to make this fit so perfectly.
Just needs buttons and blocking and it will be done.
I went to the Brockport Arts Festival for a short time today.
A local vendor was selling worsted 100% alpaca that his wife spun
herself, from their own animals. She sells for $8 an ounce, but may
sell for $6 if you buy a lot. It was beautiful. I looked at the price
$45 for 145 yards. I did not even bother to figure out how much
a sweater would cost!!!!
Speaking of the Arts Fest, I got several compliments on this:
Noro yarn...who would have thought!
Have a great week.
