FO’s:

Kari:

Fiori di Sole by Rosemary Hill (a.k.a. Romi on Rav).  knit out of a Silk Merino blend on 3.5 mm (US6).  This is yarn that was purchased at Knit Knackers year ago, Kari does not remember the name.

Yarn Review: Very nice, soft and squishy

Sue: Rhapsody Mobius Cowl made for my daugher out of Plassard Rhapsodie  This was crochet TBL (Through the back look) on a larger crochet hook.

Yarn Review:  Yarn was nice to work with and it goes really fast being a bulkier yarn.  I soaked it in about two inches of water with 1/2 cup conditioner.  Once done, I simply squeezed out water and let it dry.  It is much softer now.

Poking Around on the Needles:

Sue: Color Affection by Veera Valimaki, knit out of Cascade Heritage (Creme), Choc Truffle (brown) Wayside Weeds and Wool and Cantrix (green).  This is knit on 4mm (US6) needles.

Warmest Scarf Ever by Glenna C. for DH Shawn out of Berroco Lustra, Berroco Ultra Alpaca and Punta Yarns, knit on 4mm (US7)

Kari:

Calligraphy Cardigan by Hannah Fettig knit with KP Swish DK in Marble Heather colorway, on 3.75mm (US5).  Kari is knitting this for Sue for Rhinebeck…SQUEEEE!!

She is on the second sleeve and one button band left to do. I tried it on many times last night and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it and her for knitting it…..so she has her first commission knit almos done…glad I was the first to contribute.

Stash Enhancements:

Sue:

Play at Life Fiber Arts that I spontaniously orderd online due to Freedom4u (Diane) posting a link.  I abloslutely love it and cannot wait to spin it up.  It is the Pomme Colorway.

Kari: N/A

Book Review:  Filati mag is a great one.  I picked it up on a whim the other day because when I opened it I was just at awe with the patterns and the backgrounds they used to take the photos.  It really left the patterns show and that is something I really like to see.
