|The Pucker Up Cowl|
Nicki's knitting the Basic Toe Up Adult DK Socks in Mountain Color's Bearfoot yarn. The Basic Toe Up sock is a fast, simple knit that's great for beginning sock knitters and experienced sock knitters too. She won't tell us who the socks are for, but I think the simple unisex design would look great on that new man in her life! (She doesn't kiss and tell!)
Suzy's knitting the Buttonhole Scarf for her mother, a cute scarf with a nifty "buttonhole" to keep the scarf in place. A few years ago Suzy made her mother the Bow Tie Scarf, a very similar pattern that also features a buttonhole. Her mother has a new winter coat this year and has very strongly hinted that she simply must have a new scarf in a different color to match the new coat. Suzy's using her own Suzy the Shepherdess Shepherdess Worsted 100% wool yarn. She began with the cream color and then used grape Kool-Aide to dye it a vivid purple.

Wendi is also knitting the Neon Ski Bonnet, a free Ravelry pattern. The stocking hat has a double thickness band over the ears with ties at the neck to keep it on the head no matter how fast you ski! She is using HiKoo's Kenzie, a slightly fuzzy blend of merino wool, angora, alpaca, silk and nylon - and Kenzie is on sale at 20% off!
Karen's knitting with Jilly too, doing the Fall Colors Wrap - another free pattern! The three-color wrap can be knit with any of Jilly's over 50 colors. Karen is using the limited edition fall colors Ginger Ninja, The Great Pumpkin and Swamp Thing. They look great together - and the three new colors are on sale at 20% off!
