Wednesday's Stitch and Chat

Trammi is working her sleeves at the same time for her Basic Cardigan knit with Kid-Paillettes
(Lace: 42% Mohair, 40% Polyester, 18% Silk, 136 yards).

Linda was sewing the seam on her Superior Poncho knit with Berroco Folio (DK: 65% Alpaca, 35% Rayon, 219 yards).

Lois finished her Argentate Glovelettes in Rowan Lima (Worsted: 84% Alpaca, 8% Merino, 8% Nylon, 109 yards). This yarn is a pleasure to work with. Fortunately (or unfortunately) the weather is still chilly enough to wear them.

She's working on a pattern called Holy Cowl (great name).  The yarn is Road to China (Aran: 65% Alpaca, 15% Silk, 10% Camel, 10% Cashmere, 69 yards).

Michelle finished her baby blanket,  Gacoco.  Her yarn of choice, Cascade 220 Superwash Sport (DK/Sport: 100% Superwash Merino, 136 yards); 5 skeins.  The picture above is of the blanket blocked.

She finished the Ann Norling Feather and Fan baby blanket with Cascade 220 Superwash Paints (Worsted: 100% Superwash Merino, 220 yards). It measures 26" x 36".

Michelle also finished Suit  with Cascade Ultra Pima (DK: 100% Cotton, 220 yards). She has yet to sew on the buttons,  this takes longer than the knitting. It fits like an oversized, comfy sweater should.

Mary knit a swatch in Spud & Chloe Outer (Super Bulky: 65% Wool, 35% Cotton, 60 yards) for the Outer Block Blanket.

 She's going to change her needle size for the Baby Basket Hat in Berroco Comfort Worsted (50% Nylon (Polyamide) 50% Acrylic, 210 yards). It looks too big now that she's knitting it.
