Building Inventory

I finished a couple of items for this past week. This little hat fits a baby of 12 to 18 months and uses a small amount of sock weight yarn. I used the last of the Mirasol Chirapa 100% merino and had just enough to make the pompom.
Using two skeins of Noro Kureyon and two skeins of Noro Silk Garden I made this colorful striped scarf. The pattern comes from Jared Flood of
You can use two variegated colored yarns as I did here, or one solid and one variegated. It's fun to watch the colors evolve while the scarf grows in length.
Kathleen finished three more items this week. She just might singlehandedly push us over the 1,000 mark this year.
Barbara started a hat and...
Sheila is plugging along on her scarf. The word "tink" is becoming a part of her vocabulary.
We had a surprise visitor this week during the evening group meeting. Baby Ellie, who is Joyce's granddaughter/Allison's daughter came to cheer up Maureen, who lost her father recently. Our love and prayers for comfort go out for you Maureen on the passing of your Dad, Edward McDonald.
Ellie tried on the baby hat so we could get an idea of what sizes it would fit. She makes a cute model.
While Ellie visited we tested the old wive's tale of handing a baby girl a knitting needle. She readily grabbed it so it looks like we have a future Chick in our midst.
Joyce is working on a shawl for USCRI using some Lion Brand Homespun yarn.
And Judy was going to work on a colorful child's hat until she discovered she didn't bring her pattern.
On to plan B, check out a knitting book that used to belong to Maureen's late mother-in-law. It dates back to the 1980's so we all had a good laugh at the sweaters and styles.
Maureen is catching up on her knitting and is showing progress with her reversible stripes scarf.
So that brings you up to date with our projects. What are you knitting?
