On the needles: (00:31)
Jasmin has finished her Ariann! Gigi has finished her blue-brown vanilla socks (with the channel island cast-on), and cast off her On the Vine scarf (knit out of Buffalo Gals yarn). Jasmin digs the Henley Perfected out of her "knitting hope chest" knit out of the Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool. Jasmin bought the yarn on her honeymoon at Acorn Street Yarns. She was inspired by jench1n's Henley Perfected.
Gigi is working on her Par Five socks (out of the Franklin's Panopticon colorway from Lorna's Laces). Gigi is also working on her Origami Wrap cardigan out of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light. Jasmin got her anniversary gift in the mail today, from Jennie the Potter.
