Wednesday's Stitch and Chat

 Shirley reached the point in the Churchmouse English Mesh Lace pattern where you narrow the beads into a point.

 She's down to the last pattern repeat of her poncho.

 The "My Kind of Saturday" cowl that Mary was swatching for called for gauging with a #6 needle.  Considering how loosely she knits, she worked her swatch on a #2.  Before washing her swatch, her gauge was loose.  After washing it, her Riveting swatch was too tight.  I didn't feel comfortable putting up too many needle sizes, so I put her up to a #4.
She revisited her Spindrift Scarf in Ella Rae Lace Merino yarn.

Lois is breaking away from her green Gypsy Tank and going to knit up Zuzu's Petals in a skein of pink Lorna's Laces yarn. It's a cute pattern and will be a nice change of pace for her.
Linda found an unfinished project to work on. Her Noro Vest knit with yarn she was gifted with Taria Tweed yarn as the ribbed borders. All that was left was picking up the stitches for the sleeve bands.  To maximize the limited tweed contrast yarn, she picked up and knit the first two rows with the main color.
