- In Stillness by Alicia Plummer. 
I finished the sleeves, but decided I didn’t like the length of the body so I frogged it up to the last increase and am reknitting it. Still have to do the neckband also. Knoll Coast DK yarn

  • Professor Meow Sweater, KnitPicks Pattern, Diamond Tradition yarn We are doing this for a class because people wanted to learn intarsia. I’m downsizing this to a kids’ size, but only because I have other plans for a sweater with a face on it for myself.

  • Bulky Blanket - people keep asking for the ultra-bulky roving, so I thought I’d do a sample with a double strand of Super Bulky yarn on 20mm needles. I used my old straights, but we should be getting 20mm circs in soon, which will be easier to use Yarn is Sugar Bush Chill in Imperial; 6 balls

  • Mally 6-Ply Xmas socks for Mike; 2.75mm needles, 58sts
