We had 2 special guests for this episode: Christine and Laura. Both are knitters and residents of Kris’s Boston neighborhood, Roslindale (Rozzie for short!) We had a great time – a veritable lovefest for Quince and Co patterns and yarn. We love the grays — all the grays — but managed to work in some brights as well!
Much of the Quince and Co yarn was bought during a visit by Laura, Christine, and Kris to Knit Wit in Portland, ME:
Off the Needles:
Kris finished her Pipers Journey and so did Laura! Both worked in Quince and Co Chickadee.
Kris’ In Threes is also done and almost ready to send off to baby Elason.
Susan finished Reixa from Quince and Co’s Scarves etc 2013.
On the Needles:
Speaking of Scarves etc 2013…. Christine and Kris have the Netty Cowl on their needles, both in different, but equally gorgeous, colorways (Christine = River and Egret and Kris = Clay and Iceland)!
Christine is also working on the Tea with Jam and Bread pullover in Quince’s Lark — Frost, Storm, and Carrie’s Yellow.
Always more things queued than time to make them!
Kris added to her stash during trips to Loop and to Webs (time to go back on the yarn fast!)
Christine has acquired some Cascade 220 in Christmas Green, Citron, White, and Concord Grape and some Blue Sky Alpaca sport weight in red.
Susan visited Italy for an anniversary trip, and followed Nikky Epstein’s “Florence Yarn Crawl” suggestions from Knitting in Tuscany and scored some Linen and Hemp at Campolini Roberto Filati .
Susan and Kris are intrigued with Bletchley Circle, a three-part thriller on PBS, which is set in the 50’s in post-war Britain.
