Neither Amanda nor I could resist the lure of the fun little balls of TY Dy Cotton. She snatched up one for the Fishnet Scarf from Ocean Breezes.
Looks fabulous, doesn't it? She's letting me borrow it for a bit as a shop sample. I think I may have to make one of my own.
I've been wanting to make another Brittany Jumper from MinnowKnits. It is the most adorable dress and fun to knit! Last KAN I grabbed the Ty Dy and cast on. As of last night, I am almost done!
I purposely made the 2 year old size so that it will fit my niece Madelyn next summer. In the meantime, it will earn its keep as a shop sample.
I gotta admit, I've been very impressed with the Ty Dy. It is soft to knit, doesn't split horribly as can happen with cottons, and the resulting fabric feels great.
Others had fun knits to share.
Christy finished this awesome throw out of Cascade Sierra. And, perhaps even better, she and Christine escaped the kids for the evening to join us at KAN!
Quinn completed the incredible shrug you see above while knitting with us. This piece made an appearance at KAN a few weeks ago, but in a slightly different shape. There was a border that curved around Quinn's body and resulted in an odd flippy action of the shrug in the back. Definitely not a good look. The collective wisdom of the KAN group considered and advised on possible changes to de-flip it. The result? Fabulous. And check out that cable action! Stunning.
Sam completed her VERY FIRST PROJECT EVER at KAN! Wahoo!!! Yay, Sam! What's next? The knitting world is your oyster. You can do anything now. Quite a powerful feeling, hun?
Luanne had a sock in progress out of On Your Toes Bamboo - a new sock yarn made from a bamboo, nylon blend. OMG, it feels incredible. I wish I could capture the texture with my camera. Oh - imagine the possibilities. Click here to touch this amazing yarn. Mmmmm.... .
