I just have to weave in all the ends and pick up and knit some collar stitches and pick up stitches arond the sleeve cuffs, knit a row or two and then I'll be done.We're having a class starting Saturday, June 15th for the Baby Surprise Jacket -- you choose which one you want to do -- the garter stitch striped version or this new circular stranded version.
Another project that we are working on are the jackets from the book Knit Swirl.
Here, Kathy is just casting on over 600 stitches. She decided to use Zealana Rimu DK and Queensland Velveteen for a contrast. Can't wait to see how much she knitted up this week.
I decided to use my hand dyed Delaware Valley Ringspun/alpaca. I only had to cast on 512 stitches and every 4th or 5th round I get to decrease!
Judy is using Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool and did her swatch, had to go down a needle size or two -- but it's better to find out now than to cast on a million stitches and have to rip that out.
Marian is also using Silky Wool and started over. After knitting quite a bit, she realized that the size she was doing was going to be too big. Glad she discovered that now instead of after it was all done.
Cindy never ceases to amaze me with her knitting. She decided to do another project from the Kate Davies book, Colours of Shetland. Here she is knitting the Ursula Cardigan, but instead of using lots of different colors, she is using Kauni Effektgarn for the color changes and one solid of Jamieson's spindrift. Can't wait to see this finished -- which I am sure will be in no time.
Elaine brought in her Sequim shawl made out of Berroco Karma -- she added beads and it looks stunning!
Patricia loves my hand dyed yarn and sometimes mixes it with other yarns that she has spun. Here is a kimono that she knit out of my Delaware Valley Ringspun/Alpaca. Love the way it came out!
