We're doing a baby craft-a-long! Join in at anytime, it is casual!
Michele has finished-finished her Red Heart Team Spirit Tyson hat. The yarn softened up a lot with washing.
Jill has finished but needs to sew on buttons to the Maile Sweater by Nikki Van de Car in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Mediumweight - Rare Gems Fire. She used the leftovers to make the Fleegle's Seamless Saartje Booties by Susan Glinert Stevens (modified version of Saartje's Bootees by Saartje de Bruijn.)
Our Current Fix:
Michele ripped out the Cascade baby sweater she was making and is using the Red Heart with Love in a baby blanket, the Crocheted Starburst Baby Blanket by Sara Rivka.
Jill is working on the Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman in Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball Starke 6 in the Olivenstrasse colorway. She spun a bit on her Malabrigo Nube.
What We're Jonesing For:
Michele likes the Circle-T Top by Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby from the Malabrigo website. She also likes the Laxo hat by Laura Nelkin.
Jill has queued some shawls: the Evanthe shawl by Corrina Ferguson and the Red Rock Canyon shawl by Romi Hill. She finally got some MadelineTosh Tosh Lace in Oceana to make the Amille shawl by Emily Ross. She also bought a couple kits from Willow Yarns (Herrschners!). One is the Off-the-Grid Stranded Cowl by Alastair Post-Quinn (not on Ravelry!) and the other is the Tartan Mitts and Cowl by Rae Blackledge,which are chevron striped mitts and cowls in two long color repeating yarns.
