And now, it’s finished (or almost finished) project time:
Francie is rocking her in-progress Junegrass Pullover* in Kelbourne Woolens Scout by Carrie Bostick Hogue. (No, dangling circular needles aren’t a new fashion statement.) After a few armhole stitches are picked up and the sleeves knit and a few more inches worked before binding off the back hem, this sweater will be street-legal.
Jill needed only one ball of Cascade 128 Superwash for these too-cute slippers, Claire Slade’s Woodland Loafers*. Make a comfy pair for yourself or start your gift knitting early this year.
Joanne also chose Cascade 128 Superwash for her recent project, an ear-warming buff and brown hat of her own design. Love this!
Stephanie used Knitted Wit Single Fingering for her Grotine from Carolyn Dick. Linen stitch knit on the bias makes the colors of this lovely hand dyed yarn really pop.
I took the first pictures of Stephanie’s Fruitcake*, which was originally a mystery knit-along from designer Laura Aylor, thinking that the narrow garter stitch section at the top of the cowl should be worn as a turtleneck. Then Stephanie set me straight – the garter section is meant to be folded to the inside, making a double thick funnel neck. Her yarn comes from her “deep stash” – Three Irish Girls Springvale Worsted.
Not that the above styling doesn’t work, but this is the “right” way to wear it:
