What’s been happening at Pineview Designs Knitting Club during this summer at Knitting Therapy?
We've been busily knitting outside, sitting under the tent, staying safe and socially distancing ourselves, but still getting together and having fun.
Here are some of the finished projects created during this time:
Mary Grace’s Baby Surprise knit in Baby Crofter:
This is such a satisfying knit. If you've never knit Elizabeth Zimmermann's design you should really try it! It's all worked in garter stitch with some increases here and some decreases there. After the last bind off all you do is fold it a certain way and all of a sudden there's a little jacket and all you have to do is finish the shoulders and maybe add a collar. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-surprise-jacket
Zelda’s Square Blanket by Eweknits knit in Ella Rae Sunkissed: A great pattern knit from the centre out so you can just keep repeating pattern elements until the blanket is the size you want.
Kim’s Glen Echo Baby Blanket knit in Cascade Luna
Jane’s Muskoka Shawl: Knit with worsted weight yarn which Jane purchased as a kit from Eweknits in Toronto. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/muskoka-shawl; Smokey is impressed too!
Ann’s Thatch Eves Poncho knit in Ella Ray Sunkissed. This poncho is knit side to side with a lovely elongated stitch pattern. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/thatch-eaves
