What's On Our Needles?

Mary Melanson 
Pattern: Monocrome by Joji Locatelli

This versatile cowl explores some easy and beautiful lace patterns. It is the perfect project to get familiar with lace and some of its variations. Mary is knitting her cowl with Dream's Smooshy Cashmere in Green light 019, Dot solid #24, Mardi Gras solid gold and Mardi Gras Mambo.

Linda Hilliard & Kitty Longman
Pattern: Jeans Jacket by Circulo
Yarn: Jeans and Cléa by Circulo

Linda H. and Kitty are collaborating on this cute jeans jacket that uses a combination of knit and crochet stitches. Linda will crochet hems and selvedges while Kitty picks up and knits.

Linda Spruill 
Pattern: Little Miss Jane by Taiga Hilliard 
Yarn: Simply Spectacular DK by Emma's Yarn

Linda is trying to get an early start on her Christmas knitting with this precious tunic in a size 5/6. It will look great on its own for summer and over long sleeves for winter. 

She is also attempting her first Christmas Ornament by Arne & Carlos from their book 55 Christmas Balls to Knit. She is using Berroco Comfort in red and white.
