May 2022 Staff Projects

Here's what we've been working on recently! The weather may be warming up but our needles have still been busy.

Babs has just finished Tia by This.Bird.Knits in Damask. It was a fun quick knit. The sweater is exactly what I was looking for a light cover-up over sleeveless dresses this summer.

Ivy: I've now knit two of these simple Close to You shawls from Justyna Lorkowska. They were perfect for the long drive to and from Maryland Sheep & Wool - they're mostly simple garter stitch with an easy edging, perfect for one skein of variegated yarn. This one is knit in Foxy Yowza.

Lynn: I really enjoyed making Mary Annarella's Yellow Brick Rodeo! I used Mariposa and Spiked Punch in Yummy 2-Ply, and I just love how the slipped stitch yoke shows off the colors. It's a quick knit and a really nice pattern. If you have a skein of variegated fingering weight yarn, this is a fun project to consider.

Veronica: When I saw these fun graphic birds, I knew I had to knit the Charadriiformes cowl, designed by Sara Huntington Burch. The colorwork was a little challenging - there were a lot of long floats - but it was a pretty fast knit in Yowza Minis once I got a rhythm going. I'm really happy with how this has turned out! I used Rock Sparrow, Fiberworld 2020, and Dark Pegasus.

Helen has just finished Morvarch by Lucy Hague. Like many of her projects, this is a gift for her sister. It's knit in super-soft Caroline in After All, and the delicate embossed cables really shine in the center medallion.
