Toddler Stovetop by TinCanKnits in Asian Trends Royal Alpaca colour:Chartruess
Emily- did entirely wrong stitch pattern on Laurie. Wasn’t paying attention to decreases on Stovetop and had to redo some rows.
Karla - Hat for Locke was too big so we went down a size and re-cast on.
Started spinning Sweet Georgia’s Panda Base 60/30/10 Merino, bamboo, nylon in the Tea Party colour way.
Karla - solar dyed a superwash BFL and spun it into a 2 ply. I have mitten plans for this :D
Best laid plans
Emily - Sweater then toddler sweaters and WIPS
Karla - After the Darling Hat, start working through wips. Socktober is coming so I’m planning to knit patterned socks only during October.
Emily- 2x 8 0z bats of Merino in grey and yellow - might go back for another colour and do a stripy sweater?
