Yarn Club Show & Share: October 2016

People were in a very sharing mood this month, which is what Yarn Club is all about.  So many beautiful finished projects, and even a fibre-y book recommendation! Here’s the roundup:

We had TWO finished Doodlers to exclaim over this month. Above, Liz used MadelineTosh Tosh Light in dirty panther, astrid grey and grasshopper, for her project.  Her leather screw-in buttons are from Shall We Knit.

Erin brought in her Little Wave cardigan that she had ripped back and made custom measured changes to the shoulders to reduce the sweater's bulk, based on our discussions in September about custom sizing.

Finally, Roxann recommended The Coat Route by Meg Lukens Noonan:

When journalist Meg Lukens Noonan learned of an unthinkably expensive, entirely handcrafted overcoat that a fourth-generation tailor had made for one of his longtime clients, she set off on an adventure to understand its provenance, and from that impulse unspooled rich and colorful stories about its components, the centuries-old bespoke industry and its traditions, and the master craftsmen whose trade is an art form.  – from Amazon.ca
