WIPS (Works in Progress) 
Kelsey

  • A billion sock tubes …… the one Kelsey is wearing at the start of the episode is half Zitron Trekking XXL in Kunterbunt, and half is Lang Jawoll Color in 159 Purples.

  • One sock tube is made with a self-dyed skein Kelsey made while trying out a technique

  • Socks for Chris, made with DROPS Fabel yarn

  • Test Knit for Josée Paquin aka UandIKnit. In Crafty JAK’s Tough and Tender fingering yarn, colourway is Whisper. Loving this pattern and the yarn is so dreamy to knit with!

Glenda

  • Santi Cowl - uses 2 skeins of Mustard Santi. Pattern by Karen of Knit1Designs

  • Didn’t bring it, but have also just taken off the button bands of my Dasher Christmas Cardigan. The bands had too many stitches and were all wibbly, so I will pick them up again with fewer stitches. This is a FixFrogFinish project.

Store News

  • The Fix, Frog, Finish KAL will continue until the end of June. If you are doing Stash Dash this year, remember that if you make an alteration to a garment - like knitting a new button band or lengthening sleeves, you can count the yardage of the entire garment towards your total

  • Our new KAL is a Holst-a-long! Knit or crochet anything with one of the three Holst Garn Yarns - Coast, Tides, or Supersoft. The KAL will begin on July 1st and end on September 30th - this is just in time for Knit City, so maybe you can make a Knit City Sweater

There will be a chatter thread and a prize thread. Enter your finished items as posts in the prize thread

  • 1 entry for 1 - 299m
  • 2 entries for 300 - 999m (ie: post the item two times)
