Book Club Wrap Up

This summer, we read In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware for our Knitters Book Club.

Our Google Hang Out will take place August 24th at 8 PM.  Please see our Ravelry Group for more information.

The Julgran KAL

We are hosting our first ever sweater knit along!  We chose the Julgransweater, by Andi Satterlund.  This knit along began in July and will end January 1st, 2009, giving you plenty of time to make the ultimate holiday sweater.

The Julgran sweater is available on Ravelry and Andi Satterlund has provided the following 15% discount code until August 27th at 11:59 PST:  MIKJULGRANKAL

Neither Tara or Ashley have started their sweaters but have acquired yarn.  Please join us!

Hot Off the Needles

Tara finished the V-Neck Boxy by Joji Locatelli and used Plucky Feetin the colorway Barn Door (red).

Tara also finished the Pocasweater by Laura Nelkin.  She used Jill Draper Makes Stuff Kingston in the colorway Gage Street.

Ashley finished the July square of the River Knits Afghan.

Ashley finished the Ice Cream Doggie by Anna Hracochvec.

Tara is working on The Golden Hour by Andrea Mowry.  She is using Scoutby Kelbourne Woolens which is available at Woolworks.

Tara is swatching for the Tecumsehsweater by Caitlin Hunter using Jill Draper Mohonk.

Sad Knitting Tragedies

Tara unraveled the Wagenfeld sweater by Ankestrick because the colors were too bright!  She made her husband help unwind it--and because there was so much knitting completed, it took a long time!

Ashley enjoyed the Children's Neck Down Boleroso much that she kept knitting and knitting and did not realize she was making mistakes!

Healthy Living with Ashley and Tara

Ashley has run a few road races throughout the year.  She recently finished the Boordy Vineyards 5 K!  She is also training for the Charles Street 12.

Tara has been working out and loosely following Weight Watchers.  She has lost over 14 pounds!

Sew, I have Another Lover!

Ashley is leading a Sew Along for the Scout Tee at Domesticity, a fabric shop where she works!  You can follow along on Instagram by following Ashley.

Ashley has also sewed a few pencil pouches that will be the September Sew Along.  This is a free pattern by Sharon Holland.
