Granite Stitch Cape

The gorgeous Granite Stitch ape design is by Stephanie Jessica Lau of All About Ami
I love the drape of the cape and added a single pocket. I also did the sleeves and bottom ribbing attached and not separate. This pattern is a yarn eater but so comfy.

Feather Weather Sweater

I have loved this pattern for a while now. It is a Beata Jezek design found on Ravelry or on the Hedgehog fibres site
   Knit with a Mohair yarn I purchased from London Wul the very first time I ever visited that shop. Heidi had dyed it a gorgeous fuchsia and it was perfect for this project.

Projects Complete

I have been busy making socks and a few cardigans and a poncho. In the previous post I stated how I have been crocheting lots this winter. It is funny how when I get stressed I tune in to one of my many hobbies for relief. This time is crochet. I decided I wanted a new cardigan for work and made this wonderful pattern by Sewrella The Everyday Cardigan is a lovely and fairly easy project.
I also made this super easy Poncho by MakeandDoCrew

I also made a knitted boyfriend cardigan pattern from VogueKnitting Fall 2014 issue. The V Neck Cardigan is a lovely bulky weight pattern and I completed it in a very few days. I even wore it work but I found I didn’t care for the plunging “V” neckline and having the buttonholes on the left hand side drove me crazy. I ripped it back to the pockets and made the fronts go straight up, added a collar and moved the buttons so they do up on the right.I like it much better now.
 I also completed some socks. Plain toe ups done two at a time using magic loop. The left pair is Turtle Purls "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard ,Spock". The right pair is Paton's Kroy Stripes "Landscapes".
Well that is all for today. This Wednesday we are meeting at Deina's. See you there.

Crochet Crazy

So Happy New Year.
We will be meeting this Wednesday, January 31st at Reads in Riverview from 6 to 7pm. Weather permitting.
I have made two crochet shrug type cardigans in the last few weeks and I am knitting two different cardigans as well. The white Habitat cardigan I made was from a free pattern  by Make& Do Crew and it is very beginner friendly. As is the second shrug I made Light Frost Blanket sweater by Mama in a Stitch .
See you all on Wednesday

Hello and Welcome
What a lovely few hours knitting at June’s last Wednesday. Even though June was away we had a lovely time. There was a lot of conversation and knitting and crocheting going on.
   This Wednesday we will meet at the Reads in Riverview parking lot at 6pm to head to Salisbury for  dessert and coffee and a bizarre. We will be meeting at Reads in Riverview on Wednesday the 15th and 22nd of this month at 6pm.
    I am slogging away on my Margaret’s Gift sweater and finishing a pair of socks.
    Spinning retreat this year was quite wonderful and I’m so Happy that it will be at the Rods Inn Miramichi next October.
Be Well and Happy Knitting
