Live ~ Laugh ~ Knit

Robin is up to the seams on her baby coat. It came out really great, she knit it in Berroco Comfort Worsted (a great yarn for baby/kids - soft and machine wash/dry). Once she's seamed it, she can knit the collar. The pattern is from Quick Baby Knits: Over 25 Quick and Easy Designs for 0-3 year olds
Elizabeth very wisely took 1 project with her on a recent trip to compel her to work on her Artyarn's Kaleidoscope Scarf; a beautiful scarf crocheted in 1 ply cashmere. This had to take considerable restraint, I don't leave the house without 1 project let alone a trip, where I take 4 or 5 projects.
Here's the beginning of Mary's Folk Style Modern Quilt Wrap knit in Rowan Kid Silk Haze. I love the color play in this scarf. The pattern is also available as a free download at Knitting Daily
Mary is in the midst of two more crocheted squares for her crocheted sampler. The yarn is Blue Sky Organic Cotton. We are using 200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws, and Afghans: Crochet Squares to Mix and Match.

Michelle is really on a roll, trying new squares. She's got more than half the squares she'll need to complete her afghan. Mary and Michelle are taking the crocheted sampler class I'm teaching at Knitting Central. Michelle is using Tahki Torino Worsted.
