Tuesday's Stitch and Chat

Cornelia in a glamming it up for the picture wearing her new poncho. Note the perfectly matching shoes.  Per Cornelia, "It's just beautiful!  Judy did a wonderful job.  I told her it was like the Phoenix rising from the flames to be reborn as a poncho!  I finished all the fringe today."

Three generations in their hand knit ponchos!  Beautiful!

She finished her Customfit swatch in Artyarns Ensemble Light (DK: 50% Cashmere, 50% Silk, 400 yards).

Mallory was ready to work the heel of her Christmas Stocking. 

Allison continues to make progress on  The Age of Brass & Steam Kerchief in Meadowcroft Dyeworks worsted weight yarn.

Berroco Burrow in North Star (Bulky: 92% Alpaca, 8% Nylon, 109 yards).

Eleanor finished her (modified) Dangling Conversation in her leftover Kid Paillettes (Lace: 42% Mohair, 40% Polyester, 18% Silk, 137 yards).

She picked up for the neckline of her Customfit sweater (in Kid Paillettes).

Eleanor followed the recommended pick up rate in the pattern and was 20 stitches over.  Then we/she mapped out the math per section and came out closer to the suggested number. 

She was wearing her Eyelet Cowl a/k/a In the Snood, with toshdk (DK: 100% Merino, 225 yards).  This is a very versatile pattern and lends itself easily to modifications.

Eleanor's grandson wearing his Roo Car Pullover . He is soooo cute!  You can tell he's a little charmer.

Mary's customfit tunic sweater is coming along nicely in Seedling (Aran: 100% Cotton, 110 yards).

In spite of all her concerns, Mary's Otto bear is coming together.
