On our Needles January 2016

Now that the holidays are over, we're finding time to get some knitting done. 

Babs is managing to sneak in a few rows of knitting here and there in between training Oliver and watching him grow. She has socks started in two separate skeins of Masquerade Hot Shot (to help show off the potential differences in this colorway), as well as a hat in Scarlet Letter Kunlun.

Veronica is knitting Simee Dimeh for Stitches West in the Favorite Boots Eastern Slope Polydactyl Set. It's going pretty quickly, which is good because it will be show time soon!

Helen has super secret test knitting which we can't show here.

Jennifer is knitting Lelly in Night Lights Yowza, and a hat in Believable Kaweah

We may have talked Ivy into trying socks, and she just might be hooked. Ivy just finished her first ever pair of socks in Hot Shot! Three cheers for Ivy!

Are you going to be snowed in this weekend? What projects do you have picked out to keep you busy (and warm)?

Working on Casapinka’s Welcome Back Garter KAL in Mad Hatter, Dark Cassiopeia, and Livid. It is FABULOUS!!!! Very sophisticated, and stunning, yet easy to knit design. My favorite of the Pink line.

You’re not alone, Ivy!
Just finished my 5th pair of socks. I made them for an overseas pal who will also receve two hanks of Big Silk in her gift package with Northumbria Fingering in Muslin. Delightful yarn! Can’t wait to start my own two-color BFL pair; cuffs, heel flap & toes in Squash Blossom & Soul Food for everything else. With snow falling every few days since before Christmas, I need some COLOR in my life!
Can’t wait to see what Helen’s up to :-)
Have fun @ Stitches West!

I hope you all stayed safe and warm for the big snow. Yowza skeins of Shaken Not Stirred and Provence just arrived at my house. I can’t wait to start something with SNS. I just wish I knew what it wants to be. :)

JuniperLoops — Yowza Lelly here I come — have the perfect skein (Night Lights, imagine that!) — thanks!

Melinda – I’m planning on just one skein of Yowza on size 7 needles. I weighed the skein and will make the “hole” when I get to about 1/2. The blocked piece should be about the same…fingers crossed!

I’ll be working on Cassidy in Obsidian Yowza. I hope we get snowed in at least one day!

JuniperLoops:
How much Yowza are you thinking for your Lelly? Any mods to the pattern? Looks great!

I started the poly chevron cowl after Christmas in the coffee break polydactyl set. Loving it so far.

Sally

I’m knitting Barnwood Cowl by Alicia Plummer in Yummy 3-ply in the beautiful Smurf and Turf colorway. It will be such a beautiful cowl when finished and I love both the pattern and the yarn!

Leslie Ross

I just started the 3 color cashmere cowl using Sojourn Matar, Perfectly Wreckless, and Comfortable Arms. Yum.

Roberta

All these socks look great! I am going to cast on a poncho with a skein of Perfectly Wreckless that is calling to me, so that I can have a mindless alternative to a colorwork yoked sweater I am working on with Wolves Den. I am also hoping they are kidding about a Snow Day.
