May Show and Share Recap

This month was a great roundup of your recently finished items, thank you to everyone who shared!

Judy shared two different projects with us, here’s her Cirrus, which can be best described as a combination sweater/poncho. Nancy O’Connell is the designer, you’ll find this pattern published in Shibui Knits. Judy made hers in an Americo original¬†yarn held together with Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace.

Judy’s second share was actually two items – an adorable matching pair of ponchos for a set of twins! This is Temptation Poncho and Hat Set by Tatsiana Matsiuk. She used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran.

Judy knit these while on an epic road trip around the US. A long car ride just isn’t complete without knitting.

Liz shared a wonderful book she picked up recently – Uniform, Knit and Sew by Madder and Grainline Studio. Liz spoke highly of the patterns in the book, and how they are very customizable.

She shared some other great resources with the group, including some favourite fabric stores if you’re into sewing:

Needlework – 174 James St N, Hamilton
Spool and Spindle – 142 Waterloo St, Waterloo

Both stores sell 100% cotton double gauze.

Liz also shared an excellent pattern for pants, which she was wearing at the meeting – Pants No. 1 from 100 Acts of Sewing.

Roxann shared her Mesh Wrap, a pattern by Iris Schreier, from One + One, Scarves, Shawls, and Shrugs. She made her shawl using Crooked Kitchen Yarns 50/50 wool and silk, the colour is Whippoorwill.

Sharon showed us here arm sleeve for Alzheimer patients, a great project to use up lefover yarn.

I shared my yet-to-be-named knitted doll, originally made for my niece’s first birthday, but quickly turned into a project that will wait until she’s a bit older. The basic doll is from Knitted Dolls by Arne and Carlos, and I’m most excited about now starting the wardrobe collection for the doll. I figure I will have a doll with a selection of outfits done in time for her fifth birthday. Unless I get too attached and decide to keep the doll for myself.

Happy knitting,

Victoria
