I know what you're working on.

Nope, that's not creepy at all! That's what Mary said to Linda (who she hasn't seen for a while). She's been following Linda's sweater progress on the blog.

Linda is working on the side vents of her sweater, Knitting Pure & Simple # 9726 Neck Down Pullover Tunic - Women.  

Marjolijn finished her Chain Lace Big Fat Scarf  that she crocheted with Trendsetter Tonalita (Aran: 52% Wool, 48% Acrylic, 100 yards). It is so soft and squishy.  The colors are fabulous.  To give it some extra length, she crocheted a border on each end.

She's going to cast on for Plymouth Pattern #2350, Child’s Striped Jacket.  She recently took a Continental Knitting class with me and plans on employing it in this pattern.  The sweater is all knit.

Irene worked on her Colinette Better than the Rest, Vests kit; she's making minor modifications as she goes along if she doesn't like a stitch.  She doesn't love how all the yarns have such different textures.  We assured her that it was lovely like a tapestry or painting.

Diane gave me quite a fix-it proposition today.  In the middle of one section of her Linen Stitch scarf, Koigu PPPM (Fingering: 100% merino, 175 yards). She had a series mis-stitches.  I used the lace size fixastitch tool; the mistakes ran two rows deep in the same section and required some serious tinking (unknitting).

Mary had her linen stitch scarf as well.  She had one mis-stitch, otherwise it was fine.  She's knitting with dk weight yarn versus fingering.

She has also begun knitting my Destinations Top Down Sweater.  She's taking a class with me at Westport Yarns. The yarn is Tahki Rosa (Aran: 100% cotton, 93 yards).
