Current Projects

Susie knit her Water and Stone to the cuff, and so far everything is going according to plan. She also picked up stitches for the button side of the buttonband on her Chill Chaser Cardigan, and knit to the heel on her Electric Rainbow Friendship Socks. The more she knits the more she likes. She also cast on a new project – the Ozukuri Lace Shawl.

Danie got past the heel on her first Stitches Socks. She also finished the first of her worsted weight socks, minus the heel (which is an intentional afterthought), and finished the toe on the second one, and picked up the stitches for the first sleeve on her Mama Vertebrae.

Wear Report

Danie has darned her Dinna Fash Mittens. Despite how early the darning was needed, she adores them. They are wonderfully warm, and the yarn is holding up well aside from the thumb bits.

New to Me

Danie loves her Knit Picks crochet hook keychain, and Susie only wants to drink out of her Gnome Acres mugs.

Finished Projects

Danie finished another pair of mittens and another Barley hat with a pompom. They are out of some fun yarn she dyed herself, that look like a funfetti cupcake in yarn form.

Susie finished her first curl, Caesious. It’s beautiful, and she’s working through the usual style issues she has with shawls. She also finished her second Conjunction Cowl and has been wearing it pretty much non-stop. Also finished are the Monkey gift socks, after a couple of minor hiccups along the way.

Current Projects

Danie made progress on her Featherweight Cardigan. She is nearing the end of the body, but that’s relative when it’s a fingering weight sweater. She also worked on her Stitches Socks, and after ripping out the heel four times she settled one and is pressing on. She also just cast on a pair of worsted weight socks for herself.

In a succinct rundown, Susie worked on her Chill Chaser Cardigan, Water and Stone, Bonnie’s Wish, and Electric Rainbow Friendship Socks. She also started a new sweater, Dragonflies Jumper.

2015 Knitting Plans

Susie plans on WIP cracking and stash culling.

Danie plans on knitting with MadTosh, finishing three sweaters, knitting three ‘brown bag’ socks, and taking two of her hoarded Craftsy classes.
