Carmie Anderson

I'm knitting a shawl and items for grandchildren. We have 2 new babies in our family!


I'm knitting dishcloths, a garter squish, a beanie and a lace scarf (that one's in time-out). I'm crocheting two blankets- one granny squares, one moss stitch.

Cathy Green

I’m working on a pair of socks using the Molecular Orbitals sock pattern.


Finishing yet another pair of socks with only the Kitchener toes left to do today.

Virginia Harnischfeger

I am working on a sweater - Heritage Silk Shell - pattern offered by Cascade Yarns. Using Heritage Silk in color 5639 purchased from SSYC in 2020. First time using this Merino/Silk yarn. A pleasure to work with.


I'm working on the second sock out of Belle Sock in Vintage. It's my own design.


I’m knitting a KAL from a LYS.


Making socks—lots of socks—calms me & supply comes in handy whenever I need a gift. Sweater & baby blanket also get occasional attention.


I have two active projects on the needles right now--a modular stole and a second sock. I'm trying my darnedest to keep it to two-at-a-time but the Birds of a Feather shawl is really calling its siren song so I will probably be casting it on soon.


I have committed to start nothing new the month of April and finish up projects on the needles.


Since we are in a pandemic, plus I always have to shop online because my location (we only have one LYS in the OKC metro area), my online stores have become my LYS, and SSYC is my well visited place. Looking forward to your offer, and thanks for your consideration of this distance shopping by people who just can't make it there.

I'm re-doing the neck for the second time on a sweater that I could have sworn I finished a year ago...until I looked at the kneck and realized I used the wrong needle to pickup and knit the neckband...

Ellen C,

Trying to finish a shawl that has given me many headaches. Wish me luck. :)


I'm on a Rose City Roller kick. I've made them for gifts before but made myself a pair a few weeks ago and fell in love with them. Perfect for the season!

Thanks for the contest and congratulations on making it through a full year of pandemic response. Let's hope and pray another is not required.

Can't wait to see all the new goodies! My LYS is starting their annual Spring Finishing Frenzy--you sign up to complete your desired number of WIPs by May 27--so I'm working on completing Breathe & Hope, Powder Wrap, and a felted cat cave to donate to our local Shelter's online auction. It's a great motivator!


I'm knitting away at knee high Fluorite Socks by Andrea Mowry. I chose three main colors and then squeezed in a couple more scraps and they are so fun! I'm halfway done with sock #2 :-)

Gaylyn B

I'm never not knitting something. I always have multiple projects on needles.
I'm working on a vest that has been hibernating for over 2 years.(This is the 3rd and last hibernating sweater that I promised myself I would finish this spring.) I'm on the first sock of the 4th pair ever. (I never seemed interested in socks before the pandemic.) And last but not least, a linen lace scarf for a Mother's day present.
What I knit on each day depends on many variables. I have projects that meet many conditions and frames of mind.

I’m trying to finish up a shawl in three shades of green that I started over a year ago to be worn especially on St. Patrick’s day. I’m trying to get it done soon so I can move on to one of my many other more fun projects in my queue and free up more needles.


Socks! I love going round and round. I find it very relaxing.

Brooke Smith

I'm currently working on a stack of ribbed basic beanie hats. My friend is making Christmas stockings for her local VA hospital, and I'm donating hats!


I have a pair of socks going, as always-nothing fancy. Then a baby sweater in time out because I realized I skipped a few rows. Just started a summer sweater Fresh Berries Tee in cotton. A new experience.

Happy LYS Week!!
Knitting Hugs to You All!!


Am working on some very large sized socks in Less Traveled Yarn Tweed in Amber. Such an unusual but beautiful color!


Doing some "stash busting", On my second "Self Fringing Shawl", first one was so much fun. I was nervous with the first one but felt liberated when the fringe appeared.


I like to have a couple of projects going. Currently working on a sweater (Tiberius by Isabell Kraemer), socks, and a shawl (Nurmilintu by Heidi Alander).


I’ve got 3 projects on my needles right now: a pair of Petty Harbour socks with some Six and Seven Fibers yarn, the Daytripper cardigan from MDK’s latest Field Guide, and the Passeggiata wrap.


I'm knitting Hearts and Flowers socks from Wendy's book Socks From the Toes Up. I'm knitting my way thru every pattern in the book. Current project:

A Flutter Buttshirt out of an older skein of speckled Poste!

Happy spring!
