Knit and Natter 26 February

We had a lively online get together on Friday and as usual there were some beautiful projects in progress and recently completed.

Pictured above are some silk/mohair socks that Y is making as part of her charity challenge for Versus Arthritis – she’s being sponsored for the number of socks she can make in a given time. The socks are promised to the person who supplied the yarn (I think it is handspun – it looks very warm and cosy). She also just completed this children’s cardigan from materials that arrived as part of her Knit In A Box subscription.

R finished her pink cardigan.

Her next project planned is this lovely Fair Isle design cushion.

L has mastered cable as part of her jacket – the cables run up the front edges.

G just cast on with this pretty variegated yarn she bought recently – It’s going to be a baby top.

Last week T acquired a long, narrow hot water bottle – such a practical shape. It’s going to be so much nicer to use now that she’s crocheted a cover for it.

I just started another alpaca hat with a twisted rib edge.

We are a busy lot!
