What we’re working on
Jocelyn and Diana (along with one other member of Knit Club) are working on 365 Days of Granny Squares. Diana was away and sick for a while at the beginning of the year and is doing a lot of basic squares to try to catch up. She’s still about 20 behind. Jocelyn is trying to get ahead before her surgery at the end of March.
Diana is trying out the Fish Lips Kiss Heel from Sox Therapist on a pair of vanilla socks for her dad out of Online Supersocke in “Forest-Color.” She thinks it’s totally worth the $1 USD and the little bit of extra work with the cardboard foot.
Jocelyn is working on a granny square afghan for her mom.
What we’re wearing
Diana has been wearing her Lindsay Slouch hat, and Sockhead Slouch hat, which matches her socks (which have a hole and need mending). She has also been wearing her Rainbowside Shawl mostly as a scarf, as well as a green cabled scarf knit before she was on Ravelry.
Jocelyn has been attacked repeatedly by the Spearmint Tea Shawl. She’s finding casting on a small number of stitches onto circular needles isn’t going well, so is planning on starting again on straights and transferring to circulars when the shawl gets big enough.
Diana was attacked by her Bellrose Shawl, specifically row 13. For some reason it constantly had 1 too few stitches at the end of the row.
Jocelyn was attacked by her Rittenhouse Town Wrap, specifically the pattern. There is a fancy lifted bar increase that’s being difficult.
Pride & Preju-knits: Twelve Genteel Knitting Projects Inspired by Jane Austen by Trixie von Purl. This is a book out of Diana’s personal collection.
Diana and Jocelyn both need a tiny knitted armchair. Jocelyn especially wants a Mr. Darcy. Both agree this is a cute book, but the need to immediately knit anything from it is low.
