LatteMelissa has started several projects. Ornaments are in season. Melissa talked about ornament kits she previously found at Knit Purl in Portland OR: Santa Hats, Sock Monkey Ornament Kit by Sarah Morris, a Beaded Silken Star, a Snowman, and a Beaded Globe. They do not have their kits online this year so here are some similar inspiring ornament patterns found on Ravelry: Knitted Santa Hat by Linda Dawkins, Tiny Sock Monkey by MaryKate Long, Knit Star Ornaments by Kat Lewinski, and this Cabled Globe would look lovely with beads
Abby is working on self striping socks from Fab Funky Fibers in the color Fifteen Color Rainbow. And she is close to finishing the Hitofude Cardigan.
Abby is already completing a 2016 resolution by learining double knitting while working on the Null Hypothesis scarf. And she is using some beautiful wooden yarn bowls to keep the two yarns organized. The yarn bowls were given to her from listener Kim in California. One is poplar and the other is maple. For this project, Abby is using the new madeline tosh sock yarn in Blue Nile and Edison bulb.
Melissa received a knitting bag made of fabric called, “Dysfunctional Families,” and a self striping sock yarn from Yarn vs Zombies as a birthday present from Abby. Thank you Abby!
