#WEBSFiberFollowThrough: January Wrap-Up

Share Button

Can you believe that the first month of 2018 is almost over? We sure can’t!

Last month,¬† we decided to make a few crafting resolutions, and now, one month later, we’re here with a couple of updates!

Liz L., our Social Media Coordinator¬† is finishing January with a newly finished sweater she started this fall. She says, “this month I finally finished a gray raglan sweater I started making as part of WEBS’s Top Down Raglan Sweater class back in October. I had to rip out the sleeves and body a couple of times to get the fit just right, so it feels extra good that it’s finally done (and I’m wearing it as I write this!). I knit it in Valley Yarns Northampton and I’m looking forward to making more sweaters like this one but swapping out the stitch pattern on the yoke!”

Andrea, our Email Marketing Coordinator has been hard at work knitting Rowan’s Earth Stripe Wrap. It’s a free pattern, and you can pick it up here!

And as for me, I’m slowly picking at a sweater that I began in October during a Design Your Own Aran Sweater class knit in Cascade Ecological Wool. I definitely wanted a traditional sweater, and have been using patterns out of Norah Gaughan’s Knitted Cable Sourcebook – an invaluable resource if you’re like me and love charted and written patterns. I had put it down for almost a month, but I am totally compelled to finish it! This sweater has been a labor of love, and I can’t wait to wear it!

    What is the name of the sweater pattern, please? …and where might it be purchased?

    Thank you!

    Hi Karen! Both sweaters are our own designs done from our personal measurements! I learned how to do mine in a class this fall – Design Your Own Aran Sweater, and Liz learned hers in a Top Down class. Take a peek at class tab on our website!
