Finished Objects:

Glenda: Wearing: Vanguard by Annamária Ötvös, knit in Malabrigo Rios in Cirrus Grey

Kelsey: Wearing - Laurie by Josée Paquin in Sweet Fibre Merino Twist DK colourway Lagoon

  • Book People - by Sylvia McFadden in my Dancing Flamingo Garibaldi fingering weight.

  • Orbit by Janina Kallio - in Sapphire in my Waterfront worsted base

  • Spongdal Toque by me - in Blueberry Milkshake in Dunbar DK and accidental orange by Puzzle Tree Yarns

  • Two toques - one in Drops Eskimo (lost the tag so don’t know the colour off hand) and the other in Cascade Magnum Paints “Berry Mix” which has unfortunately been discontinued. You could easily swap it out with the Sea Fusion, Chill or Rasta that we have in store.

Works in Progress


  • Orange Vest. This is also for charity. Based on Yarnspirations Child’s V-neck Vest. Knitting it with leftovers from my stash. It is very wide, so I’m having to add other colours to make it long enough.

  • Stillwater Cardigan by Olive Knits. Cast this on on Tuesday night in our class. Two strands of Rowan Donegal Lambswool Tweed that I overdyed with Kelsey and Becca.

Everything else seems to have been sidetracked

- Nerea by Fiber Tales in Laine Magazine 7. Knit in Sweet Fibre Merino DK Twist, colourway Marshland.

  • Another toque that I’m knitting, trying to incorporate some of my Japanese Bible knitting into.

  • Witch Socks - Ursula has a toe and I’ve started the heel!
