  • Jade:    
    • till working on the Adam’s Rib Hoodie, which is an easily memorized pattern.

    • She was attacked by MOTHRA!!

  • Sandy-- 
    • Socks with a  welt pattern with short-row heels. Lion Magic Stripes, easy peasy.;
      • Using Socks A La Carte for inspiration. (ISBN-13: 978-1600611858, by the SWTC Design Team)
    •  Nov. NaKniSweMo! I’ve got a hibernated hoodie that will be perfect: Apres Surf Hoodie
    • Messed up a hat! Loved everything about it until it stretched horribly (yarn’s fault). Dublin Cap
