Robin is working on her second blanket in Lynn Wilson's Love it Sampler Blanket. She's knitting it with Blue Sky Dyed Organic Cotton.

Claudia surprised us with a visit with her son. It was such a joy to see them. The baby is SO big! I couldn't believe it when it was my turn to hold him. He is absolutely adorable and smiley. It was great to see them both.

Michelle's afghan for her son is moving along swiftly, although it is now too big to travel. The pattern is adapted froma baby blanket and the yarn is Berroco Comfort Worsted. She recently picked up Jojoland Melody Superwash yarn to knit the Swirl Shawl.
Kristin joined us today. She's working on this Brillana Pullover in Malagribo Chunky. The sweater looks plush. The pattern is from Eat Sleep Knit. She has a situation at the bottom that is going to require grafting. After seeing Mary's assorted projects, she asked her if she was more knitter or crocheter. Mary, being Mary, answered "neither"!
While up in Vermont, Mary went on a crocheted square rampage. She worked up most of these squares in one weekend.

Here is Mary's Modern Quilt Wrap by Mags Kandis' book Folk Style: Innovative Designs to Knit, Including Sweaters, Hats, Scarves, Gloves and More (Style series)Mary has these 2 skeins of Shepherd Bulky and has been asked to knit hats for hunting season. The colors will really blend in with fall foiliage. She's going to use my Simple Hat for the Whole Family.
