Yarn In the News
Alice malicejp shared an article with us from The Verge about the issues of inclusive sizing in knitting patterns.
- Greg is working on his Christmas socks with yarn from KnittyAndColor. In order to avoid second-sock-syndrome, he knits the second sock first and he’s done with that, now! So just one more sock to go.
- Greg is (not) working on Frog and Toad by Kristina Ingrid McGowan. His wife’s birthday has come and gone, so he can work on it without being secretive now.
- This year’s Romi’s 2021 Spring Mystery Shawl KAL started and Greg recovered from the carnage caused when he destroyed some yarn by crushing beads. He is using yarn from A Verb For Keeping Warm.
- Pam is working on the Namaste Yoga Socks by Brenda Castiel. She is using Ice Yarns Print Sock.
- She worked on her Spinning for Socks Socks. She is basically using the Vanilla Latte Socks pattern by Virginia Rose-Jeanes.
- Pam worked on her goals blanket using the Cosy Stripe Blanket by Attic24. She started with a Double Crochet Foundation (actual term) and used this tutorial. She is using Stylecraft Special DK.
- Pam’s cousin Lisa is making the Granny Stripe Blanket from Attic24. She is using KnitPicks Mighty Stitch.
- We are in between books right now and are taking a brief “summer break”. When we start up again, our book club book will be The Knitter’s Book of Yarn: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing, Using, and Enjoying Yarn by Clara Parkes.
