We already have some finished hats for our new recipients, The Unity House in Troy, NY. This pink hat is Janna's first attempt at the pattern, 1898 Hat and she improvised a little Fair Isle patterning which looks great!
Barbara made a lovely cabled hat with a nice warm 100% wool yarn.
Cinzia made a short rows scarf with a bulky weight yarn that knitted up so quickly that....
she made another to give to friend.
Maureen made two darling little baby hats.
And Carole added another to the inventory.
My Chevron Cowl is done and just needs a gentle blocking to even out the points.
This afternoon Barbara worked on a color changing scarf/shawl. These yarns make the knitting journey fun while you anticipate the next color.
Debbie's 1898 Hat is in the initial stages of the ear band. After it's knitted, stitches are picked up along the edge to make the crown of the hat.
Here is Janna's 1898 hat after the ear band is grafted into a ring and the stitches for the crown have been picked up. It won't be long before this is finished too.
Cinzia's hat is a top down version of a basic watch cap.
And we have a new evening Chick! Barbara Beauchamp (in the red shirt) joined tonight. She contacted me a year or so ago but we didn't have an opening at the time. In the meantime, she joined a monthly knit night I attend at our local Panera. Then we found out Beth was leaving and Barbara was available and the rest is history! Welcome to the flock Barbara. We hope to have many knitting nights together with you.
Carole is putting the finishing touches on her "Swimming with Salmon" cowl.
And Maureen is making another cute baby hat with ear flaps.
Margaret is working on the ear band of another 1898 hat. Do you get the idea we Chicks like this pattern? It's a fun hat to knit and works up very quickly.
This is Dorah's current hat project.
It starts with a twisted rib of K1tbl, P1 which looks more pronounced that a standard K1,P1.
And Barbara's basic hat is just beginning with a nice purple yarn.
Over the weekend my son said we should be preparing Joules for her return home. So she and I had a long cuddle and a good cry on Sunday.
I'm going to miss this little cuddle bug! She has become my buddy who follows me everywhere and she has really spoiled me for any other cat. No one can compare to Queen Joules!
Maybe I can work out a custody agreement. ;)
