“I have two finished sweaters to share with the guild members.

Photo (1) Linda Berger – Scofidio pullover
Scofidio is the pattern name, the designer is Fiona Alice. Knit in BAAH La Jolla.
Photos (2) Sue Zois – Genentically Linked Scarf
Sue Zois test knit the Genetically Linked Scarf for Mary Martin, our new member from Toronto, Canada. It uses Mary’s reversible cabling technique which results in a different cable pattern on each side. Two fingering weight yarns are marled together as the background, but only one strand is used for the design feature (cable). Through the use of slipped stitches and the single strand cable, the design feature appears to float on top of the fabric.
Mary is currently hosting the Family Connections KAL, your choice of 3 similar patterns, in her Ravelry forum, Mary W Martin Knits.
