FO’s

Sue: Basic Ribbed Socks are finally done. Pattern is by Kate Atherley and knit out of ALWO Stompfwolle in colorway is 09 which is a blue-green.

Kari:  Pineapple Bag is done and it is so cute.  Pattern is by Franklin Habit and knit out of Knit Picks Gloss Lace in the Dandilion colorway and Knit Picks Shadow in the Forest Heather colorway.

Poking around on The Needles

Sue:

Just cast on Socks on a Plane by Laura Linneman for the Knit Me Happy sock KAL for Aug/Sept.  Yarn is Three Irish Girls Adorn Sock in the Brighton colorway.

Color Affection is driving me nuts, have second color (Choc Brown) on and it melds too much with the first color (Ranco Multi) so I am removing that and using the green (Cantrix) instead for the second color.  It is knit on 4 mm (US6) needles.

Medano Beach bag is getting close to completion.  I am working on the final bag section then onto the straps.  It is knit out of Knit Picks Dishie in the Swan and Ivy colorway on 4.0 mm (US6) needles.

Boneyard Shawl has not been touched.  It is out of Sirdar County Style DK and Sirdar Snuggly on 5 mm (US) needles.

Riverbed Socks have been lonley as well, I am at the heel flap of the first sock but I need to be sitting as I am new at using charts so it takes my full concentration.  It is knit out of ArtByAna Dreaming DK yarn which is a local dyer.  They are knit on 2.5 mm (US).

This pattern is designed by TGail Designs and she has offered members of our group the pattern for free until August 31st.  Use the code 2Tangled to get your free copy.

Kari:

The Queen Susan Shawl, a.k.a. Insanity Shawl is coming along.  Kari took a class with the designer while at stitches and he gave her a few tips and she is knitting it faster now.  It is being knit out of South West Trading Company Infinity Lace yarn.

Falling Leaves socks,  Kari sat up one night after Stitches writing out the pattern, Thanks you to everyone who “poked” her as she asked because it is very near completion.  They are knit in Araucania Ranco Multi yarn on 2.25 mm (US1).

Color Affection is almost done, she was missing the last bit of yarn to finish it while in Chicago.  She was on a race with Soho30 (Sarah) to finish but Sarah ended up having to rip section 3 out completely….YIKES!

Even Star Shawl was cast on as soon as we got home from our trip.  Kari actually met Susan Pandorf.. FAN moment for Kari in a big way!  It is being knit out of Fleece Artist Saldanha Two on 3.25 mm (US3).

On the Wheels:

Kari:  Bought a new wheel at Unravelled in Merrickville ON.  She is currently spinning Ashford Silk Merino Silver Fiber which is an 80/20 Merino/Silk blend in the Pamegranate colorway.

Sue: I am currently spinning corkscrews….I guess every spinner has to start somewhere…YIKES!

UP NEXT:

Twist Fiber Festival Aug 25-26 where we are both taking classes with the Yarn Harlot YAY!

Sarah (Soho30), Lyn (Tollbaby), Kari and I are going up on the Sunday as Lyn and I have a class but Sarah and Kari are going up on Saturday for Kari’s Class and Sarah is bringing her loom up for advice and of lessons.

Janie H Knits – Aug 27-29 Yarn Harlot classes:  Lyn, Sarah and Kai have classes.

Janie is closing her store after being open for 6 years.  She has a huge sale on and most things are at 40% off.  It is well worth the trip to Perth.

About Jadedknitter

I'm an author, a knitwear designer, a painter, and trying to find my love of the kitchen again. I write romance novels (they're candy, for the brain!) and read mostly history. I love to knit in the evenings curled up with my pug and watching whatever documentary strikes my fancy. My designs are born from a desire to knit something that I can see in my minds eye but can't find a pattern for. My current crop of paintings have been Celtic knots, I've drawn them for years now I'm colouring them in. Who knows what I'll end up doing next!
