 Sarah came to pick up hats about 2 weeks ago.  She counted them and put them in size order.  Woolbearers collected 68 hats!!  Thank you everyone. We're still collecting hats if you have any more. She is delivering these hats to folks in Union Beach. This area was hit pretty hard by the hurricane.

 Rosa finished her Learn-to-Knit Afghan and put it together.  She used Cascade 220.   Rosa - take a bow!

We've been working on a few Kate Davies patterns for our latest Knit-Along.  Meg is cutting the steeks for her Blaithin Cardigan.  She did finish it -- I haven't seen the final product, but will post pix when I get to see it.  Meg knit hers out of Stonehedge's Shepherds Wool and it really worked up beautifully.

I made mine out of Debbie Bliss Blue Faced Leicester.  I am almost finished and can't wait to make the first cut.

We are also working on Kate Davies' Tir Chonaill Blanket.  Mary's is done out of Berroco Ultra Alpaca.  She finished hers as well.  Just waiting for the pix.

Cindy has done hers out of Tahki Tara Tweed.  It has the look of chenille.  It's amazing how the colors choices make it look so different.

Stacy is using Tahki Donegal Tweed  and the one below is mine out of Tara Tweed.  I really want to finish the sweater first and then I will get the blanket done!

We love Kate Davies designs so much, we are going to do another KAL from her book "Colours of Shetland".  I will be getting copies of the book in a few weeks -- hope you all will join us.  The KAL starts on  Feb 10.

Looking for a quick and easy project -- Churchouse has done it again with their Cozy Boot Cuffs!
