Here’s more of what’s in our project bags.
Jack: I’m working on Rock Island by Jared Flood using Lornas Laces Helens Lace. I’m also working on Earth & Sky by Stephen West using three colors of Canopy Fingering.
Yvonne: I’m working on a Traveling Woman in Malabrigo Sock, Killaloe Mittens in Shetland Spindrift, and Shoulder Shawl in Syrian Pattern from Victorian Lace Today in Jojoland Harmony.
Martha: Currently I am desperately trying to finish a secret swap project and I have a dilemma, I ran out of yarn. I COULD undo a pattern repeat and finish, or I could buy more yarn (Eco +) and finish. What to do???
Connie: I began one pattern with some Cascade 220, but was not pleased with it. Just the other day I took it out and frogged what I had done. I went searching on the internet for a free pattern that I could make using several colors of yarn. I was looking for something that had a Scandinavian feel to it. I ran across a new (to me) website called www.jarbo.se . It’s from Sweden. They have lots of free patterns — the only problem is that the patterns are in Swedish or Norwegian or ? Anyway, I found one that I liked and began knitting the sweater. Here’s the link to the free pattern (I believe it is Norwegian — I used Google translate in a couple of places to figure out the basic information). The pattern is a bottom up sweater and I’ve only just begun it in the last few days.
Jenn: I’m knitting a pair of Herringbone Rib Socks from Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn in Lorna’s Laces Purple Iris.
Zelda: I’m crocheting a Cascade Afghan out of Cascade 220.
What are you working on ? Has the cold weather inspired you to drag out your heavy-duty fiber projects?
