Can it be a week has gone by since our last highly energized Saturday knitting workshop? Last week it was an explosion of energy…..tales to share, work-in-progress to share, and in some cases finished garments. Each tale was delivered with its unique sense of glee.

Susanne and her latest Moderne Blanket

Susanne showed her latest Moderne Blanket (featured in Mason-Dixon Knitting) that is on her needles. Both of her sons have married in the last year or so and each has received this lovely blanket as a gift….well this latest one is to be delivered soon. You can check out the first one here. Once again she is knitting with Brown Sheep’s Cotton Fleece…..and finds this blanket to be great “comfort” knitting…..garter stitch that can be knit without a lot of effort…simply the joy of knitting and watching the blanket grow and the colors unfold.

Check out this silly moment…. Susanne modeling this creative teapot cosy.

Then there was Diane….feet in the air….showing her sock…gathering looks of awe.

PJ - Happy Knitter!

PJ wore her No Yoke Ribbed  Sweater. It was knit in Queensland Collection’s Kathmandu Aran. Her sweater is a perfect fit and she enjoys wearing it now.

We had a bit of “technical” grafting under the armhole that turned out just fine.

PJ - The details

Another knitalong can be set up for this sweater….let me know and it can be scheduled to start in January.

There was more show and tell of items on the needles…and a welcome back to Carol C who has been absent for this last year raising dogs and caring for grandchildren. Imagine her surprise when she found that the sleeve to her top-down cardigan was safely here at Skein Lane Studio.

Rohan with his show and tell

And through all the tales, show and tell, and laughter young Rohan kept on knitting.

…..now onto other  Saturday of knitting. Today it’s the Saturday morning workshop – noontime mini-top down series – and the Fan Bolero workshop.

Let the knitting day begin!
