Flat Foot Floogie - Because it is fun to say!

Calann had to rip back a few rows of her Poncho Air Lux knit with Air Lux (Fingering: 70% Rayon, 30% Wool, 328 yards). Luckily she had put in a lifeline. She thought she had dropped stitches and the lifeline caught them. She learned how to take out a Slip Knit Pass (skp) which is angled differently than a knit two together (k2tog).  She likes the pattern, feels it's easy, and you just have to pay attention...

She is going to knit the Flat Foot Floogie for a baby gift. 

Allison began the 2 Ply Cashmere Jacket a in Artyarns Merino Cloud (Fingering: 80% Merino, 20% Cashmere, 436 yards). It will be a good travel project.  The subtle colors are beautiful.

She's going to start Starshower  in Anzula Nebula (Fingering: 84% Merino, 16% Nylon, 400 yards) before the Anzula Trunk Show at Westport Yarns next Tuesday, July 12. Today we are going to work the garter tab cast on. Can you see how the yarn sparkles? I hope they have this yarn at the trunk show.  I may have to copy Allison.  They do say that's the highest form of flattery.

Eleanor finished on Braidsmaid in Miss Babs, Raspberry Yowza (Worsted: 100% Merino, 560 yards). We have it due "ooohhs and aaahhhs".


She started The Quilt & Cable Blanket in Cascade Eco Plus (Bulky: 100% Wool, 478 yards). LOVE this color.

Michelle has one more skein to knit on her Gacoco Baby Blanket in Plymouth Select Superwash (Worsted: 100% Merino 218 yards).

Cornelia figured out why her sleeve cap was too short on her Customfit Pullover in Plymouth Mushishi (Worsted: 95% Wool, 5% Silk, 491 yards).


She had misinterpreted the decrease instructions, and increased too quickly. Where it says to decrease at each end of every 3rd RS row, she read it as every 3rd row. 

Jane B. Finished ribbing on bottom of her Two Harbor's Poncho and began picking up stitches for neck in the contrast color.

Jane T. nearing the point where she can take the sleeves off her Essence Pullover in Tahoe (Aran: 32% Nylon, 27% Wool, 25% Alpaca, 16% Yak, 179 yards).

I ask you, does this look comfortable?
