Marsha’s Projects

Garter Squish Blanket by Stephen West. Finished! Size 60” x 72”.

Quick Switch hat by Abbyeknits using Madelinetosh Tosh DK in the colorway Cousteau. Finished!

Atlas (Ravelry link) by Jared Flood using Navia Tradition. The pattern is also available at his website. Still need to knit a swatch with #10 needles and then determine my next steps. 

Nanny Meier’s Tea Cozy by Amelia Carlsen. I am using Cascade 220 Heather in Red Wine Heather (9489) and green Irelande (2429). Nothing to report here. Still waiting for Brian to measure his teapot so I know when to start decreasing for the top of the tea cozy.

Nanny Meier’s Tea Cozy by Amelia Carlsen. Started a second tea cozy as a Christmas gift for my friend Susannah. Her kitchen is yellow so I am using Cascade 220 Yellow (9463) and Orange (9668). 

Meadow Stripe Socks using Patons Kroy Sock in the colorway, Meadow Stripes and Lang Yarns Jawoll Superwash fingering for the heels and toes. Finished the first sock and cast on the second.

Paving Mitts (Ravelry link) I didn’t have yarn in my stash I wanted to use so I bought Lang Yarns Jawoll Superwash in the pink and gray.

Kelly’s Projects

Pebblebrook Beanie by Wish Upon a Hook (Ravelry link). I’ve now made three of them. Two with the leftover acrylic and one with the leftovers of the targhee lamb fleece.

I finished the Sundowner shawl by Tanja Steinbach. (Ravelry Link). I’m using NoCKRs spirit yarn. Wollmeise twin 80/20 in two different brown variegated colors. Used every last bit of the Wollemeise yarn. I put in an extra wedge and then made the ribbed ruffle a little wider. Then I ran out of yarn about two thirds of the way through the bind off. I ended up using a black mercerized cotton for the end of the bind off. 

I’m still working on a pair of socks in Bob Ross Happy Little Mistakes yarn from Weird Sisters Wool Emporium in Aberdeen. This is the yarn Marsha bought for me while we were in Seabrook. 

Plied the fringe and washed the baby blanket using spirit yarn (Ravelry link) I love twisting fringe and watching how the colors work in the plied fringe. 

Dark Green Forest (Ravelry link) by Christina Korber-Reith needs to have its sleeves evened out before I start the ribbing.
