This is our busiest time of year, planning all the excitement for next year’s Yarnathon & keeping up with your orders for this chilly time of year, but we still try to make as much time for our personal knitting as possible. We really love bringing in our projects to share with one another so why not share them with our online family too! Keep scrolling to see what some of the kitties are working on/have picked back up after a long hibernation!
Jess is currently working on Uncia by Lucy Hague. She is using Malabrigo Lace in Polar Morn to tackle this tediously beautiful wrap. This design is modeled after the detailed architecture of Gothic and Roman rose windows which pairs perfectly with Jess’s love of all things spooky! When she brought this in to share with the kitties, we were all amazed by how light and airy this shawl is knitting up. It’s going to be beautiful with her purple/teal hair!
This is the project that would earn Janine her Long Haul Badge but, boy, is it amazing! Janine picked back up Saltwater by Heidi Kirrmaier after she looked in a stray project bag and saw how incredible Madelinetosh TML in Cardinal & Whiskey Barrel look together. She really enjoyed the ease of this pattern so it will be great for her to bring to one of the Knit Nights that she hosts every Friday evening!
Tracey is notorious for having multiple projects on the needles at a time. She gets bored easily so she likes to switch between sweaters and socks and fun shawls. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, Tracey has been flying through Woodfords by Elizabeth Doherty using our 2015 Madelinetosh exclusive colorway, The Fox on TML! This cardigan will be perfect for Thanksgiving morning as she prepares pies for her family’s feast.
Emily was so struck by Camp Wilkerson by Caitllin Hunter that she immediately bought the pattern & had Tracey help her pick colors in Malabrigo Rios. They chose Pearl Ten, Natural, Frank Ochre, and Teal Feather. She cast on and has been jamming on this over-sized shawl. Rios is truly a pleasure to work with – so soft on your hands and her tight gauge really shows off the simple stockinette. She’s now on the home stretch, just two more stripes and the big block of Frank Ochre and she’s done!
Erin has been working on her project for our Colorwork Space Mittens KAL. She chose to tackle the Galileo Mittens and is using Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL Fingering Superwash in the colorways It’s a Supernatural Thing and Spores. She is the loosest and quickest knitter here so, kid duties permitting, she will have these babies finished in no time! Now, we aren’t sure if this Georgia weather will get cold enough for her to wear them but I’m sure she would crank her A/C just to sport them!
Share with us what you are working on! Any holiday knitting? Or maybe a special gift just for yourself?
Wow Jess, that lace is so lovely! Now I want to knit one! And Emily, I may have to copy your Camp Wilkerson shawl – I’ve been eyeing that pattern for a while!
