How happy is Robin?!Elizabeth is planning on knitting an afghan with all these colors. She laid them all out on the table. The picture above shows our first collective effort. We weren't really happy with it as it looked too mellow on the right.
Mary found this McCall's Needlework pattern book dating back to 1970! It had knitting, crochet, and needlepoint.
Mary liked this pattern especially because the yarn they call for is Orlon. That's of special significance because Robin was gifted a skein of Orlon. Since none of us could remember ever seeing a yarn with Orlon we were curious how far back it would have dated. We have an answer, at least to 1970.
Mary knit a Simple & Easy baby hat in Classic Elite Sprout, a bulky cotton. It was cute and soft.
Michelle got a bit off stitch count with Ishbel. Several recounts and a few misplace yarn overs later, she was back in the game.
