We have a Crochet-A-Long starting and project updates and we reconnect after a hectic month.
Atlas (Ravelry link) by Jared Flood using Navia Tradition. The pattern is also available at his website. I have made the tiniest bit of movement. JoAnn (momdiggity) came to my house to offer help with my colorwork. She was a tremendous help and it was lovely to finally meet her. My plan is 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.
Garter Squish Blanket by Stephen West. I am obsessed with this project! Knitting with main color #7 of a total of nine and started repeating the contrasting colors. I’m knitting #2 of the second set of contrasting colors.
Cast on a pair of basic socks using Patons Kroy Socks in the colorway Meadow Stripes.
Faye’s Flower Blanket, made with the Persian Tile Blanket pattern by Jane Crowfoot is done and delivered.
Another finished project, already mailed and no pictures! Fennec hat by Alicia Weisberg-Roberts and worsted booties from a free Bernat pattern. Used Invictus Yarns Captain Superwash in the Driftaway color. From the Heavyweight yarn club, September. After I finished those I used acrylic scraps from the blanket to make a slightly larger striped hat and a pumpkin hat.
Dark Green Forest by Christina Korber-Reith. The yarn is handspun and overdyed. It’s a 3-ply made from CVM fleece from deep stash (2005 ish).
Crochet Along Dates November 1 through Jan 10.
If you need Crochet Along ideas:
Tiny Spider by Anastasia Kirs. Crocheted with thread on 0.4 or 0.5 mm hook!
Postmortem by Ann Wanamaker. It’s a coffin shaped piece of crocheted lace with a skeleton inside. Ana Wanamaker has some interesting Victorian creepy doilies. If you like Blue Willow or Calamity Ware, check out the Deathware pattern. Marsha should make it to hang on Mark’s wall of Blue Willow.
Pebblebrook Beanie by Wish Upon a Hook has an interesting stitch pattern and would look good with multiple colors.
I wear my Habitat Cardigan a lot!
Daydream Shawl by Toni Lipsey. An Aran weight big chunky fringed shawl in Tunisian crochet. Check out all her patterns!
Starts October 15 and goes through the end of March.
