KAL news!

Westkal 17 is wrapping up just a few more days to enter. Make sure to go to the ravelry group page and post your finished Stephen West projects by April 30th. I will close the thread May 1st and pick the winners at the next podcast.


Finished Objects:

Starburst Shawl by Stephen West. Done in dk weight and I used 4 colors. Knitted Wit Victory Dk in Blush, Republic of Wool dk in Crackle and Sourpuss and Sweetgeorgia dk in Wisteria. Used a US size 6 needle


Rainbow Bright socks, done with Yarn and Ewe Rainbow bright selfstriping yarn on the Jazzy Tweed Base. I used a US Size 1 40 inch cable and knit them 2 at a time from toe up. I used Judy’s Magic Cast on and did socks with 64 sts. Fish lips kiss heels and classic bind off just done very loosely. I think my gauge is a bit loose so my next vanilla socks will be on a size 0 to see if that makes a difference.


Sylphrena Socks

New design sock I’m working on. Pattern to be available soon. Will include cuff down and toe up version. I knit these using Sweetgeorgia TLS in Jade and heels cuffs and toes in Mrs. Babs (color unknown) Use a US size 1 needle. This pair was done cuff down.



Light rain pullover by Joji Locatelli. I’m knitting the second smallest size and I used a US size 5 needle. Still not at gauge with that needle but it works out ok. Yarn is Yarn and Ewe Jazzy Tweed in Fog. I’m almost done. I have a little of the second sleeve left and then the cowl neck. Very excited about this sweater. I realized I’ve been knitting the lace section incorrectly but still like the look of it and honestly at this point I’m just going to finish the way I started.
