Sweaters in Progress

Cornelia gave her Confidence Pullover sweater to the finisher to block and sew.  She was absolutely thrilled with result. Now she's ready to pick up for the neck.

She's also working on her first Customfit sweater in Malabrigo Worsted (Worsted: 100% Merino, 210 yards). This yarn knits up beautifully. She dropped a stitch a few rows down and learned how to pick it up.

Allison is working on her Customfit sweater in Skacel Kid Pailettes.  Her ribbing has an uneven number of stitches and she keeps kgetting off pattern. She's working both fronts at once and one side is off by a few rows and too many stitches,.  She'll have to work one side over again to get it to match.

She  is nearly done with one of her (Susie's) fingerless gloves that she began last week.

Karine came in to learn how to crochet the strips of her Sampler Afghan together.  She knit it in Cascade 128 Superwash (Bulky: 100% Superwash wool, 128 yards). All the strips were blocked and the afghan feels soft and cozy.  The yarn was originally going to be a sweater for her husband and got repurposed into a lovely afghan.

She's also working on this exquisite sweater called, Pride and Prejudice, in a fingering weight yarn. Lovely!
