Details regarding project photos:
Photo (1): Sandy Yayanos Cardigan
“I wasn’t actually looking for a top down knit but the Miranda cardigan by Amy Gunderson in Interweave Knits Spring 2015 was perfect for my stash yarn purchase of Berroco Ultra Alpaca. This has front and back darts, I-cord finishing and NO seams. Don’t recommend this as a summer project as it’s too much fabric on the lap.”
Photos (2): Ann Sheridan – Tiger Socks, Childs Vest
“Here are a couple of photos of recently completed projects, both will be for gifts next Christmas…
Tiger socks. Pattern is Rose City Rollers and the yarn is Uneek Sock in the Tigress colorway (a generous gift from a friend and fellow guild member)
Xmas 2021 Vest. Pattern is Simple Pie Vest – Child, and the yarn is Plymouth Encore Tweed
Photos (3): Colleen Davis – Cropped Toppers (2) and a Vest
“Here’s 3 for this month: The first one is a cropped topper in bill colors where I knit some curvy section using short rows. The middle cropped topper is divided into 4 sections using short rows— gray, coral, bronze, yellow-gold. The third is a vest using “funky mitered squares/rectangles in tailed, grays and beige with black outlines.”
