Alexis shared her recently completed set of three hooded cardigans for her boys (and none of them have outgrown them yet!). The pattern is Sibling Revelry by Meghan Jones, published in Little NutMeg Productions. She used Patons DK Superwash (in colours selected by the kiddos) for the body of each sweater, with a coordinating variegated yarn for the hood from Kat's Riverside Studio.

Roxann let us know that the newest issue of Piecework magazine (January/February 2018) has a great feature about socks. This is the magazine's historical knitting issue, and the article focuses on handknitted socks and stockings from around the world.

And without even realizing it, I brought along my recently finished Broken Seed Stitch Socks for Show and Share, and they got to double as convenient demonstration items for the blocking talk. I was totally mesmerized by watching the crinkly and stubborn heel section of my socks lay flat and become smooth when I steamed them. Just like magic!
The pattern is really more of a basic set of instructions with the stitch pattern, so this would not be an ideal sock pattern for a new knitter. Broken Seed Stitch Socks by Hanna Levaniemi.
