FO’s

Sue:

Magdolna hat by Emily Matisz who is Emknits on Ravelry.  I was one of her test knitters.  This was a quick and easy knit, pattern very well written.  I used Filatura Di Cost Zara in a beautiful green. It was knit on 4.5mm (US6)and 3.5mm (US4).

Yarn Review:  This yarn is very nice to knit with, not splitty at all, blocks well and has great stitch definition.

Kari:

Tourbillon hat by Kris Carlson, knit with Cascade 220 on size 3.25mm (US3) were made to match but they did not fit so Kari’s Mom was the happy recipient!

Yarn Review: This is Kari’s go to yarn as it is very nice to knit with and it comes in both regular and superwash.  It is very nice to use on colourwork. Kari plans on making the Fiddlehead Mittens using Cascade 220 as there is enough left over to make a pair.

Poking around on the needles:

Kari:

EvenStar Shawl is by Susan Pandorf.  It is knit out of Fleece Artist in the Saldahna Two colorway on 3.25 mm (US4) signature needles.  An inch or so of progress was done on it this week

Brigit Jacket by Courtney Kelly, knit from the book Vintage Modern Knits.  Yarn is Briggs & Little Regal.  Needles are 5mm (US8), so this is going very fast.  Kari started this August 31st  at knit night, and told everyone she wants it done for Rhinebeck.
Both sleeves, the back and one front panel are done.

Sue:

Color Affection…take 2!  Pattern is by Veera Valimaki.  This is knit on 4mm (US6) needles.  This shawl is for Rhinebeck!  I am halfway through the color stripes on the brown (color 2) which is called Choc Truffle by Wayside Weeds and Wool on Etsy.  She is nightandday on Ravelry, and a very talended local artist.

Socks on a Plane by Laura Linneman for a KAL with the Knit Me Happy group for Aug/Sept.  This is knit with Three Irish Girls yarn in the Brighton colorway using 2.5 mm (US1) needles.

On the wheel:

No progres this week.

Stash Enhancements:

Sue is doing a destash on Ravelry if anyone is interested.  And since she got rid of some yarn already…well a Tink Socky-Wocky from has made it’s way to her stash.  Thank you Krystal looking forward to fondling it!

Other News/Road Trips:

We have a KAL/CAL called Getting Ready for the Cold in our group, please come and join.

We are going to Rhinebeck, we are not taking classes, but there will be stash enhancing!  We will be there both days, and cannot wait to meet everyone.  So if you know us please approach, say hi we would love to meet you!
