Susie ran into a(nother) snag with her Elizabeth Shawl, and ended up setting it aside. But it will be fixed eventually. She also worked on her 3/4 Hap Shawl, and started a TGV using a Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball in Indisch Rosa.
Danie’s Lintilla grew a bit, as did her Zigzagular Socks. She also picked up her Mother’s Day Cast-On 2013 project, but has some doubts about it. She may be casting on a TGV of her own…
Susie swatched for Hitofude using Wollemeise Pure in Ein Klein Wenig Verrucht, and will be knitting it for her Mother’s Day Cast-On. She is also participating in Camp Loopy 2014 Project 1, and will be knitting Bramble Fern in Cascade 220 Superwash in Provence. She is also planning on another shawl (or three) and the patterns catching her eye are Brickless, Rippling, and Tan House Brook Shawl.
Danie has decided to spin for her Mother’s Day project, and will be using fiber from the amazing and mythical Countess Ablaze.
Enhance the Stash
Susie’s stash was enhanced by two gorgeous skeins from Ladybug Fiber, including a skein for her Mother’s Day Cast-On 2015 (crazy town!).
