Our Groundhog Day Knitalong concluded late last week and we were delighted to see the progress that was made. We really enjoyed the photos that many of you shared along with notes about your projects. Some terrific knits were started, and a few were cast off within our allotted time frame; making them eligible to be entered in the drawing for our prize.
We thought we’d share some of the finished projects so that you can see what was created with our delicious Vermont Organic yarn.
Here at the Spinnery, Larisa made a pair of Double Stuff Mittens with the grey organic yarn on the outside, and Rosehip Alpaca Elegance as the snuggly inside. Maureen got a warm cardigan started. Her Barnard sweater designed by Lori Versaci is about 3/4 complete, with just the sleeves remaining to be knit. And Meghan completed a Sundottir pullover designed by Diana Walla. She combined both colors of the Vermont Organic yarn to stunning effect!
You may have seen a photo of Carrie’s lovely Brezel hat here a couple of weeks ago, when we featured some recently finished customer projects. We love the way this rustic yarn makes textures like ribs and cables pop with clarity.
Jolene from Washington state started a pair of Ah Caramel fingerless gloves designed by Tanis Lavallee. As you can see, the creamy white yarn makes her cable work look like a million dollars! And we imagine that these will keep her nice and toasty warm.
The randomly selected winner of our prize, Joy, finished a pair of very snuggly looking socks with a few weeks to spare! She shared these details about her project, “Best socks ever, like hugs for your feet. Great yarn, great pattern. The socks are fun to knit with the knit/purl sequence creating the interesting stitch pattern. I will use this yarn again…a sweater, I think., it’s that lovely.”
Her socks were created with the FREE pattern designed by Ingrid Nødtvedt.
When we contacted her to let her know that she’d won a Spinnery tote bag and pattern of her choice, she selected Cap Sease’s Gulfoss pattern. We can’t wait to see how that knits up for her, and what colors she chooses to work with.
Thanks to everyone who cast on with us and shared their progress. Our virtual knitting circle made the last few weeks of winter pass with a shared sense of community and fun. We’ll reach out to you all shortly before we start our next knitalong to find out if you have suggestions or preferences about what we all get started next!
