Ep. 87 - Post NoCKRs

Sweater progress!

What I've Finished:
Jill made four Knitted Knockers out of Cascade Ultra Pima in a taupe color with aqua backing color.

My Current Fix:
Jill has finished the body and first sleeve on her Marklee pullover by Elizabeth Doherty in Invictus Yarns Reward in the Contemplate colorway.  She is almost done with her Ixchel by Catherine Clark, but has to do redo the top of the neck.  Her Rav page is here.  She is using Sweet Sparrow Gosling in Dusty Rose and Magpie in Butter Beer.  She just started the Butterfly/Papillon shawl by Marin Melchior out of Uneek Fingering and Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Burgundy.

What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill wants to make a neutral color open front cardigan.  She's looking at Howell Mountain by Sloane Rosenthal, Ebbetts by Elizabeth Doherty and Portage by Melissa Schaschwary.  She also likes the My Boy Lollipop by Nancy Ricci and Soundwave by Faye Kennington.  She thinks the Spring Charm Set by Susan B. Anderson is adorable.

Ep. 86 - Pellow and Melk

I finished the wedding cardigan in time!

What I've Finished:
Jill finished all her knitting for Jessie's wedding!  She finished the mash-up of Lobelia by Meghan Fernandes and the Pop Crop Cardi by Ambah O'Brien using Jessie's handspun Mork Made Fiber Co.  Her project page here.  She also made three more stars from the Scintillation pattern by Hunter Hammersen.  Her Rav page here.

My Current Fix:
Jill's primary project is still the Marklee by Elizabeth Doherty in Invictus Yarns Reward in the Contemplate colorway.  She is also about to start some more Knitted Knockers out of Cascade Ultra Pima.

What I'm Jonesing For:
Jill loves the Olive Leaf Pullover by Ririko.  She likes the new brioche shawl, Beads, by Andree Beddoe.  There are also some fun embroidery patterns in the new Summer 2019 Knitscene, like the Oxidation Mitts by Uma Padu, Diadem Effect Beret by Martha Wissing and the New Growth Hat by Andrea Cull.
