Posts Tagged ‘Annie’s Scarf Stole’

So many things to share and some recent happenings make me want to skip ahead to the Saturday group for this post. Natasha and her husband John are expecting their first baby in July. She is busily preparing for this happy event which, of course, includes knitting. When she announced her pregnancy in January by showing a baby blanket, we were so excited for her. This child-in-the-making immediately had numerous “aunts and grandmothers”. Natasha bought the yarn, Araucania’s Nature Cotton,  (when Skein Lane retail closed) in hopes of knitting for a baby – her baby. Finally she just began…and then she was delighted to share that she is “with child”.  She is also knitting an Annie Scarf Stole for use during her pregnancy and for her nursing days ahead. She has just completed a baby boy sweater –  yes, it’s a boy!

Later I will post about Natasha’s mother, Jen. She has such an interesting family history that she has researched and ultimately written a book about her travels. Stay tuned for more on this topic.

By the way, Natasha is another prolific knitter..and you will see more of her works here.

Susanne's "Annie Scarf" Stole

Susanne's "Annie Scarf" Stole

An almost midnight post!

Susanne  arrived at Tuesday knitting…yarn and projects in hand…saying,  “I brought my stole for blog viewing.” (…or something like that). She has been buried deep in a work project…and coming out tonight for knitting was big!

Now doesn’t she look wonderful in her rendition of this stole …….quickly becoming a timeless…… the Annie Scarf Stole? Susanne knit her version with Cascade’s Bulky Venezia…and notice in the photo that she edged each end with a different yarn. She then offset that with the alternative yarn blended in the fringe.

She loved knitting this project!

….oh, it’s nearing late night hours and time to post this.

Terry is another prolific knitter – always has several projects on the needles. This week she showed some of the projects – and here is one of them that is very near completion. It’s the Botanica Medallion cardigan featured in the Summer ’09 issue of Vogue Knitting magazine. Terry is knitting her version in Laurel from Schaefer Yarns. She is  going to add sleeves to her version…and she says that is a wonderfully easy and fun knit!

Terry also showed her completed Annie’s Scarf Stole.…this has been a very popular stole in our knitting circles. Her version is knit with Cascade 220.
