  • As usual Julia Child wins the day! I’m in for a Trellis sometime soon.

  • Using Refreshalong to make a Christmas gift. Trellis Top in Mosquito Coast. Can’t wait to start.

  • I’m in for the Trellis Top. Julia made me start already. This Nua is really beautiful to knit with.

  • I’m in for Trellis too! My Nua in Cafe Flamengo (an exciting color stretch for me!) arrived yesterday. I’ve never participated in a KAL, so this extended Refreshalong is right up my alley! I guess I really need to concentrate on my swatch based on Kay’s post from yesterday!

  • My Nua sport is on it’s way! Can’t wait to get started.

  • I started early too—a Trellis Top in Felted Tweed out of the stash. My first KAL here, and my first sweater in YEARS!

  • May need to start my Arcade cap this Monday. I have a pottery Zoom conference this weekend. Looks so fun but attainable for my beginner self.

  • I thought that I subscribed to get the newer guides. Is there a way to check?

  • Gonna make the leap into the transom cardigan… Just as soon as my order arrives!

  • I would work the Arcade Cap inside out to avoid so much purling. It also makes the reverse stockinette stitches look tidier. When you get to the decreases flip the hat to the public side and purl the crown. Don’t forget to work one w&t or one German-short-row double stitch to avoid a hole when you reverse direction.

  • ‘Stay for the I-cord buttonholes’… yes!

  • I am excited to knit the Twining Wrap. Hope to begin soon.
