Prairie Girls Knit & Spin

May your drafting be consistent, and your gauge never lie!

Nov 26, 2016

In this episode, the girls reflect on what knitting does for them, and how that sometimes changes because of life.


We're gearing up for the 2016 Legend-Prairie contest! Please contact us if you're interested in donating a giveaway prize.

Finished Projects

Danie finished a stack of garter stitch squares, which is the start of her Micah's Blanket. She also started and mostly finished (minus the felting) her Micah's Duffers (2016).

Susie finished her secret hat project.

Current Projects

Danie has been working away on her HamilKnit hat. She also started a new sweater - Staring at Stars.

Susie worked a little on the i-cord edging on her Oh Scrap Blanket, and on her Vedai sweater. She also worked through the cuff of her second Directional Socks, and cast-on Whisky & Rye using Marigoldjen BFL/Nylon Sock in Merry & Bright. She knit a bit on her Pebble Beach Shawl, and cast-on Close To You using Ethereal Fibers Aurora Borealis Sock (shawl) in Do You Know When Santa Farts at the Mall?, as well as a Luckdragon Shawl using KnitCircus Lavish in Humperdink, Humperdink, Humperdink.

Project: Reconsideration

Susie will never knit a Christmas stocking, and so she's given up even pretending like she will. She is following Danie's lead and ordering some Holiday Stockings (white glove,  yo!) from Sprout Patterns.

Enhance the Stash

Susie acquired madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Undergrowth, a peppermint mocha bag from Suburban Stitcher, some Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd Wool Worsted for a kid hat, and a couple skeins from A Whimsical Wood Yarn Co.
