Finished Projects

Susie finished her first pair of mittens using Danie’s Triangle Thumb Toddler Mittens pattern and Kirbywirby Worsted in Fru Fighters.

Danie knit up a super quick lap blanket for her grandma – watch for the pattern!

Current Projects

Susie cast on a Barley hat out of her mitten leftovers, and an On the Bias Cowl out of Manos Del Uruguay Gloria in Oceano and Vereda. She also worked on her Socks in the Name of Science and  Glenfiddich sweater, and will be ripping back a bit and reknitting on her Choice Bit of Calico test knit.

Danie worked on some new mittens, and would have finished her Broncos Socks but for a literal thorn in her side (or hand, really). She also worked on her Fuzzy Hat.

Future Projects

Susie is planning an Infinito from Joji Locatelli’s The Authentic Collection using Twisted Fiber Arts Arial Evolution in Phantom and Valley Yarns Charlemont (now discontinued) in Dusk.

Danie is planning a Bluebird of Happiness for her grandma.

Enhance the Stash

Susie acquired Malabrigo Yarn Sock in Lettuce and Arco Iris.
