Nanny Meier’s Tea Cozy by Amelia Carlsen. I am using Cascade 220 Heather in Red Wine Heather (9489) and green Irelande (2429). I have finished both sides and am ready to sew together and make pompoms.
Meadow Stripe Socks using Patons Kroy Sock in the colorway, Meadow Stripes and Lang Yarns Jawoll Superwash fingering for the heels and toes. Ready to start heel flap on the second sock.
Quick Switch Hat by AbbyeKnits. My son liked the hat so much I cast on another for him using Meeker Street Olives Outerwear DK in the colorway Sage. I finished the hat but I think it is too small.
Phrancko Designs crew neck from Phrancko.com by Frank Jernigan. I’m using my green and brown handspun merino. Finished the ribbing but I’m waiting for Ben to try on the sweater before binding off. Frank says to use the invisible ribbed bind off, but with the warning that it is difficult to frog, so I want to be sure of the length. Started first sleeve
Finished my spinning project with merino roving from The Weaving Works that I bought at a gathering of spinners on Whidbey Island several years ago. I have a one ounce ball of green (Amazon), blue (Cornflower), light blue (Rain), and mauve (Plum). I cast on for a cowl and am using the helix knitting technique with four colors that our listener Rochelle (Reecreates) suggested. Here is a link to the Purl SoHo video.
Found a 2lb bag of Manx Loaghton in my stash. This is a protected breed from the Isle of Man. I am using a woolen spun technique.
I’m still working on a pair of socks (Ravelry link) in Bob Ross Happy Little Mistakes yarn from Weird Sisters Wool Emporium in Aberdeen. I’m using the stitch pattern from Blueberry Waffle socks.
I started a Garter Squish blanket to use the handspun leftovers from my tossing of the stash. I’m about to the halfway mark and I’m almost done with the natural white Columbia and Oxford that I’m using as the base color. I’m going to have to spin more.
