That's the way it goes in a knitter's life

Lois finished her first strip of the Sampler Blanket we are knitting together. She is revisiting the Knitting Pure & Simple Basic Vest for Men she is knitting with  Mission Falls 136 Merino Superwash (Sport: 100% Merino, 136 yards).  The reason I say revisiting is that there is a sad tale attached to this project.  Lois had taken it with her on a plane trip and either it didn't get into her bag or it fell out of it when she got off the plane.

Linda picked up 2 extra stitches while knitting the Pebble Stitch in the same Sampler Blanket. She sagely said "that's the way it goes in a knitters life".

I met Linn at Westport Yarns last week during our Artyarns Trunk Show.  She's knitting my Fallen Halo cowl with Artyarns Cashmere 5 (Aran: 100% Cashmere, 102 yards) and Cashmere Glitter (DK: 100% Cashmere plied w/ metallic, 170 yards). Knitting this pattern represents some knitting firsts for Linn: using a circular needle, knitting in the round, changing stitch patterns, and carrying yarn).

Michelle stopped by briefly; she hasn't knit in a week on her quilt knit with Cascade Ecological Wool (Bulky: 100% Wool, 478 yards).

I worked on my Basia a la CustomFit cardigan, knitting the ribbing on the neck.
