Happy New Year!!
Thanks again for joining me for another episode of the Yarn and Ewe Girl Podcast. I truly appreciate you all and am thankful for our amazing crafting community.
Decorative burp rags for my nephew
American Girl Doll Carolina Summer dress by Elaine Phillips. I used some leftover sock yarn from Black Trillium fibers and Miss Babs (unsure of the names of colorway). I held the yarn together double to make the dress a worsted weight. Basically so I could get it done faster! I adjusted the stitch count to get an appropriate gauge.
Camp Wilkerson Shawl by Caitlin Hunter. Yarn is Sweetgeorgia DK 100% superwash merino, colors are Mink, Pumpkin, Silver and Glacier. I ran low on the mink and had to improvise on the last row of the last stripe, now I won’t have enough mink to get to the end. I’m thinking of sewing together at the end to make a cowl. Not sure yet, but I’ll come up with something.
Kandahar Socks by Alice Yu. Yarn Ancient Arts, Frost flower. Using Chiaogoo US size 1, magic loop.
I’m deciding to rip out a sweater I was making for my mom from about 5 years ago. Tea leaves cardigan by Melissa Labarre using Dream in Color classy, Absolute Magenta. 100% superwash merino. I was about halfway down the back and only needed to finish that and complete the arms. My mom isn’t really into sweaters. I’m going to learn how to use my knitting machine and use this yarn to make something for me.
Sweetgeorgia Tough Love sock and superwash worsted got restocked with lots of new colors. So be sure to check those out.
