November and December Show and Share

The Show and Share slips for the last two months got shuffled together, so forgive us for combining them into one summary post. It still means you can find the patterns and yarn details for all those lovely things you saw at Yarn Club, so I’m calling this a win.

Catherine shared some challenges she encountered while using up yarn scraps to make a pair of mittens. Something didn’t sound quite right about a mitten that is only 5″ long, but it works for her as she has very dainty hands. The pattern is The World’s Simplest Mittens by Tin Can Knits.

Roxanne shared another one of her designs for a shawl, this one featuring Georgian Bay Fibres in the “Henrietta’s Pie” colourway.

Valerie shared her stunning Oscar Rectangular Shawl, knit in Madeline Tosh Merino Light, the colourway is “Blood Runs Cold”

Liz brought in her Emma Version C  by Julie Weisenberger, knit in Estelle Yarns Big Alpaca Bulky. Love that pop of colour from the pocket!

Rolling in the Deep, a test knit for SweaterFreak Knits. Knit in The Plucky Knitter Plucky Rustic in Lonesome Highway. If memory serves me right, this was a beautiful reversible cardigan.

And finally, I shared a few of my gift knits for this year:

Teddy Sweater by Terri Kruse, knit in Cascade 220 Sport for my wee nephew Benjamin

Everglade by Wooly Wormhead, knit in Loop Alpaca Tweed (Loop London). Great slouchy hat, with a nice long brim that can be work folded up for a toque-style hat.

Bough Set by Leila Raabe, knit in Berroco Vintage DK, with a matching pair of mittens I made using the chart from the Bough hat, following the general pattern and shaping from the Druid Mittens by Jared Flood.

And while I didn’t share it at the December meeting because I hadn’t even started it yet, I have since finished a lovely little knitted dress/tunic for my baby neice. The pattern is Anikka by Vivian Aubrey, and I knit my version in Berroco Vintage.

P.S. I made the sweet little baby legwarmers too.

Happy knitting!

Victoria
