Carol Myers – Simple Socks
Simple Sock by Barbara Fisher, knit using Malabrigo sock yarn.
Carol Myers – Mackubin Hat
Mackubin Hat designed by Mary Lou Egan, a test knit using Jamieson & Smith yarns leftover from another project. “…a good-looking hat for all genders! Likely I’ll knit it again… it is shown modeled by an ‘old guy’ that I ventured with to Maui.”
Beth Carnet – the Snoozzzze Blanket
The Snoozzzze Blanket, designed by Pinnegurl (Ann Myhre). The pattern was designed to knit in the round and then steek, using light fingering weight yarn. Beth knit the blanket flat, reducing the size of the blanket, in Cascade Superwash Sport on needle size 5.
Mary Lovett – Norwegian Fir Hat
Norwegian Fir Hat, designed by The Autumn Acorn. Knit using Atlantic Coast Shannon Cashmerino and Silk DK held together with Lana Grossa Setasuri (lace weight Suri and Silk) to soften the Shannon DK since it was a little scratchy.
Hooded Granny Square Vest for granddaughter Brooke. Peggy designed this from a photo Brooke found on Etsy. The project consists of fifty-one 4.5 inch squares crocheted with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky yarn.
#1: Bright red and orange color blocks with unusual pockets—one horizontal, one vertical, with black & white check trim., buttons to match.
#2: Abstract design with color blocks of turquoise, blue, green, magenta, purple and dark yellow. Worked in garter stitch with some shading.
How to submit your photos
Photos can be submitted either via text message or email to Kerry Nare. (Kerry’s phone number and direct email address can be found in the Guild Directory.) Image file sizes should be as large as possible for clarity (ideally greater than 500 kb please). Keep in mind when you take your photos, that projects show up best against solid backgrounds. Include a description of your project, pattern and designer name, yarn used, how you came to knit your project, and any other information you wish viewers to know, and when texting be sure to include your name!
* Did you know? Smart phones have much better cameras than iPads or tablets, so if you have a choice, take your photos with your phone. You can text photos directly from your phone, no need to download first.
While there is no set deadline for submissions, please submit your projects by the 4th Monday of the month to ensure it is posted before the next News Blast goes out. Photos are posted according to the month they are received.
