A Week in Review

I'm taking a break from knitting Charlotte's Daughter's Shawl, Joy. I'm loving how it's turning out. I'll post a picture tomorrow. It's just that every two rows it grows 4 sts and I'm up to 253 sts so 1 row takes a lot of time!
Lois is test knitting my "Knit it Flat - Hat" in Road to China. I'm happy to say that she's loving the pattern and is going to start another hat for her daughter.
Lois' daughter knit Lynn Wilson's Envelope Evening Clutch in Loop d' Loop Quartz. She was looking for a challenge and got one in the beginning decorative stitching. She's starting another one.
Robin is working on the Infinity Cabled Cowl in Rowan Lima. She's not enjoying knitting this as much as I did. Hopefully she'll enjoy it more when it's done.
Mary is knitting a baby gift ensemble from the Knitting Pure & Simple Baby Hat, Mitts & Booties. The hat is adorable. The yarn is Lorna Laces Worsted yarn. She started the baby booties and nearly finished it during the course of our group.
We revisited the baby cardigan she's making. She kind of got off track on her sizing and has to go back to the armhole/neck shaping and rework it.
Elizabeth brought Colinette Jitterbug yarn in the colorway slate. She wanted to start another pair of two at a time, cuff down socks. A good traveling project for the car.
Sherry is crocheting an afghan in Nuvola yarn. A supersoft wool by Lana Grossa.
Sunaina joined us for the first time today and was immediately in her element. She shared the book Chicks with Sticks Guide to Knitting. We all really liked it. Sunaina showed us some wash clothes she's making as gifts. We worked on fixing mistakes and unknitting.
Linda made her usual robust entrance, where after hearing about Knitting Central's closing, turned to me and said "What the hell is going on with you?!" I look forward to Linda's entrances. Maybe you had to be there.

Having only knit Wallaby sweaters so far, she had never had to bind off her knitting!!! She finished the sleeves on her sweater and learned how to bind off. I love looking at this sweater, very patriotic!

Michelle, we miss you, send us pictures of your knitting!
