FOs (Finished Objects)
Glenda: Wearing: Vanguard Cardigan by Annamária Ötvös, knit in Malabrigo Rios in Cirrus Grey
Stillwater Cardigan by Marie Greene. Knit in a double strand of Rowan Lambswool Tweed that I overdyed. Finished, blocked, and still slightly damp.
- Bumble bee socks. Socks made on the Circular Sock Machine, with afterthought heels and toes. Knit with K-Zip Knits Garibaldi Sock in Loyal Bees and Patons Kroy Sock in Black
WIPS (Works in Progress)
Worsted weight socks made with Briggs & Little Heritage in Sheep’s Grey and Grape. Started the cuff on this last summer/fall. Picked it back up (and put it back onto the needles) so that I’d have something to knit while on the Twitch & Stitch stream last week.
Herbsaint by Thea Coleman, made with Baa Ram Ewe Winterburn DK in Goathland.
- Mount Pleasant by Megan Noedecker in Holst Garn Supersoft in Pussy Willow
- Mummers from Saltwater Mittens in Briggs & Little Regal in Dark Grey and Yellow - one mitt complete, one to go!
- Cowichan Inspired Sweater - I’m getting there! All in Custom Woolen Mills. My own colourwork pattern and modification of a seamed pattern.
