March 2018 Show and Share

Alexis Hoy

It was a lovely roundup of knitted beauties this month. Yarn Club members turned out in droves (with a few new members and guests!) for the talk on fixing your knitting mistakes, and you brought some delightful finished projects to share.

Jo brought in her Veronika Cardigan, by Shannon Cook, knit in Berroco Ultra Alpaca (she used colour number 62176).

Bogna shared a heavy shawl, Decemberist by Melanie Berg. She made her version in Mary Maxim Northland (which is a discontinued yarn, sorry).

Cindy shared her BlueSand Cardigan, a pattern by La Maison Rililie Designs. My favourite part was the colourful pockets - who doesn't love a garment with pockets?! Cindy made her version with Berroco Remix Light, made from 100% recycled fibres.

Alexis debuted a new pattern and shared her sample with the group, here's the Comforati Hat! Her versions features an INTERCHANGEABLE faux fur pom pom, which has a snap attachment rather than being sewn onto the hat. Change your pom pom to match your outfit or your mood. The hat is knit in Debbie Bliss BFL Aran (sadly, also discontinued).

Roxann shared one of her own designs for a dual lucet braided hat. Roxann used two strands braided at a time to create the hat, and used the large prongs of the lucet for the loose braid over the hat body, and the smal prings for the dense braid at the hat brim. The yarn she used is from G n' R Alpaca Farm in Lisle Ontario.

Thanks for sharing your finished projects!

Happy knitting,
