A short one today!
What I've Finished:
Jill knit up the Aki Hat by Svetlana Volkova in Lion Brand Jeans in the Brand New colorway for a friend going through chemo treatments.
My Current Fix:
Jill is mostly obsessed with knitting the Ixchel sweater by Catherine Clark in Sweet Sparrow Yarns. The main color is Gosling in Dusty Rose, and the contrast is Magpie in Butter Beer. She has also been working on the Adventurer Cowl by Ambah O'Brien using Fishknits Warm Heart in the NorCal Wildflower Hotspots mini set. She is also making a gnome using the Gnome Pun Intended pattern by Sarah Schira out of leftover Malabrigo Sock in the Turner and Eggplant colorways.
What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill needs to start making Scintillation stars by Hunter Hammersen for her friend's wedding! She likes the Strofi headband by Teti/ Nutsknitwear Design and Toph hat by Woolly Wormhead. Jill loves the Panjareh cropped top by Christina Danaee and Milu 3-color shawl by Tamy Gore.
