Tuesday's Stitch and Chat

Calann's granddaughters wanted cowls just like her Fallen Halo.  We adjusted the cast on for the girls who are 4 and 7.  She is also knitting one for her daughter.  Can you guess what color belongs to who? Let's just say I bonded with the four year old over color choices. ;)

She will be using the same yarn the pattern calls for, Artyarns Cashmere 5 (Aran: 100% Cashmere, 102 yards) and Artyarns Cashmere Glitter (DK: 100% Cashmere plied w/ metallic, 170 yards).
Her grandson wanted a different cowl so we did a Ravelry search and found the Snowbunny Hat, Cowl & Mitts. She'll be knitting it in Cascade 220 Superwash Sport (DK/Sport: 100% Superwash Wool, 136 yards). Calann had to knit a mock circular gauge for the cowl.

Just as we thought, Eleanor is knitting the second sleeve of her her Textures Cardigan in Tahki Rosa (Aran: 100% Cotton, 93 yards).  There is a very good chance she'll be wearing this next week. (No pressure, Eleanor.)

Cornelia finished the pieces of her Customfit and got it ready for the finisher.  I am so proud of her, this is the third sweater she has completed this year.

We discussed several books we really enjoyed:
From Eleanor: Red Tails in Love and Maisie Dobbs 
From Me: Chasing Fireflies and In the Unlikely Event
