Wednesday's Stitch and Chat

Lois is working on Argentate Glovelettes in Rowan Lima (Worsted: 84% Alpaca, 8% Merino, 8% Nylon, 109 yards).  The pattern was easy and she's really happy with the results so far.

Maria is knitting the Moses blanket with yarn from her stash. I couldn't find the pattern on Ravelry, there are several Moses blankets/baskets, but none of them were a match.  She knit on a wrong side row and needed to back track a few stitches.

She's also knitting a stockinette cowl.  While traveling on an airplane (and watching a movie) she got turned around the wrong way which left a hole in her knitting.  She had to rip back a few rows.

Elaine reached the point in her pattern of picking up stitches for the border.  She is left handed and we had an interesting moment where picking up stitches as directed was too awkward.  Elaine figured out a way to use her left hand needle to pick up the stitch and the right hand needle to knit it on.   The Mini Water’s Edge Cardigan is for her granddaughter. The yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash (Worsted: 100% superwash merino, 220 yards).

Linda finished sewing her All about the yarn jacket knit with Queensland Uluru (Fingering:  55% Cotton, 26% Acrylic, 19% Polyester, 410 yards) held with Filatura Di Crosa Nirvana (Cobweb:  100% Merino, 372 yards).

I received a text from Michelle, she's been working on the Boxy Sweater.  The yarn is Rowan Panama (Fingering: 55% Rayon, 33% Cotton, 12% Linen, 148 yards).
