Ep 147: Can Row Gauge Make That Much Difference?

Kelly Locke

 

Moving, organizing, dog training, and surprisingly only one real project each! Nevertheless we persist with the chatting! Row gauge issues might solve the mystery of running out of yarn.

Marsha’s Projects

I’ve been busy knitting Holey Comfort cardigan by Hinterm Stein using Elemental Effects Cormo. I’ve reached 21” from the neck and still have to knit another 80 rows plus 19 rows for bottom band. That seemed too long so I stopped knitting and moved onto the first sleeve. I’ve knit about ¾ of the sleeve but not see I’m running out our yarn! Time to start rethinking the project.

Still knitting the Arne and Carlos sock in Pairfect.

 

Kelly’s Projects 

I’m working on a charity hat with the puffy rib stitch I liked so much on the socks. I’m using Cloud Born worsted that I got for free at Stitches last year.

I failed on my goal to finish the  Sonny Bono Jacket.  The sleeve is clipped in place, ready to be sewn in. In my defense, we’ve been having our summer in October season here on the Central Coast. 

I finished a Ripple Bralette by Jessie Maed Designs. It was a quick knit and I had a lot of yarn left in the skein. It comes out so small it’s hard to believe it would fit, but it does. Possibly I could get two out of one skein. Still haven’t tested whether it will make me itch or not. I need a cooler day before I wear a wool bralette!

Ribbed bralette that looks quite small but is stretchy

I’m planning a new pullover and I’ll be using a combination of these patterns--Rachel by Josée Paquin, Muriel by Josée Paquin, Fresh by Josée Paquin

Four skeins of blue green yarn. Two dark and two light.

I’m also still fantasy knitting the handspun cardigan out of the CVM that I want to dye. There are now two patterns on my list--Breckon by Amy Christoffers, Anna's Cardigan - My Size by PetiteKnit

It’s Winter Weave Along Time!

Or Summer Weave Along if you’re in the southern hemisphere! Starts November 1. We’ll talk about it more in the kickoff in the next episode! It will go through March 31.
