Finished Projects

Danie completed her Tour de Fleece and has finished handspun to show for it. She also completed her Mama Vertebrae, complete with sewing in grosgrain ribbon to stabilize the collar/front edges.

Susie finished her Dinner in the Eiffel Tower Shawl and Danie likes it! She really likes it!

Current Projects

Danie started a cotton top for Stitches, based on Petrie, using Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Marlin. Unfortunately she encountered a son of a stitch in the way of 36 extra stitches, so it will need to be restarted and may not be a Stitches top.

Susie continued knitting on her Ozukuri Lace Shawl. She is nearing the toe on her first Bang Whiz sock, and put in the heel on the first of her Fork in the Road Socks.
