Our Current Fix:
Jill is back to crocheting her Sophie's Universe CAL blanket in Knit Picks Brava Worsted. Her Rav page here. The pattern page here.
Michele finished her Chai Beanie by Claire Devine. She used Lion Brand Woolspun in Peacock and Moss Mix for the pom pom. Hers is here. She is going to start a Ducks team color hat using the Purl Soho Classic Cuffed Beanie.
Jill finished her Wild is the Wind hat by Lee Meredith in Plymouth Taria Tweed in dark green. She also made a hot water bottle cover using the Haworth pattern by Julie Zaichuk-Ryan. She used Patons Classic Wool in Moss Heather, just about a skein. She almost made the Hot Water Platypus pattern or the Cozy Bottle by Hinke.
Michele is working on the Celtic Cable Beanie by Cecilia Fameli using Knit Picks City Tweed DK. Her project page here.
What Jill Is Jonesing For:
Jill is going to cast on the Alinta Wrap by Ambah O'Brien soon using KP Capretta, Shibui Sock and Decadently Divine Decadent Sock SW. She'll enter that in the Yarnderwoman striped shawl KAL. She might start Velma by Allyson Dykhuizen for the Holla Knits KAL starting Feb 1. She has a few new silly favorites, the Manta Ray Family by Kristin Maw and the Kinky Karrrot by Julie Lucas. She also likes the new Cabled Knit Cardigan by Patons for all her potential baby knitting. She joined the 2 Knit Lit Chicks KAL.
