FO’s

Sue: 16 Sixteen Cable Hat by Circe Celles, knit out of Laines Du Nord, Guinco on size 4mm (US6).  Note: on cable patterens and such, don’t knit it out of variagated yarn because the pattern gets lost and you don’t see it.  I also knit the Thermis out of the same yarn and the yarn does not do the pattern justice at all.

Yarn Review  Not as elaborate as Kari’s reviews, but it was nice to knit with and blocks well.

Kari: Rainbow Aeolian by Elizabeth Freeman, knit out of Noro Sekku on size 3.75 mm (US5).  Note: On thish shawl, this yarn was not the best choice.

Yarn Review:  This was not the best choice of yarns for this pattern, it did not block well, and there is a part that ripped out do the blockage, having any sort of tension while knitting hinders this yarn.

Poking Around on the Needles:

Sue: Color Affection by Veera Valimaki, knit our of Cascade Heritage (Creme), Choc Truffle (brown) Wayside Weeds and Wool and Cantrix (green).

Socks on a Plane by Laura Linneman (LaLa) 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 (US1.5) 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
