Staff KAL - Weekender Light


We all agree that miles of stockinette in the round made for a relaxing knit. We're thinking of making second ones.  Here's a few changes we made or may make for a second project 

- Diane used a larger needle size than recommended and did not use the larger needle for the sleeves

- We found that the neckline was a little tight. For a second one - we may use the same needle size for the neckline as the body to loosen it up.  


We're making the perfect year-round sweater for our temperate SF weather - Weekender Light by Andrea Mowry! 

Update July 21, 2020

We're all making good progress on this super relaxing knit! 





Sonja is using Cumbria Fingering in Dertwenwater - a great color! 

Laura is using Malabrigo Sock in Playa - so lovely! 

Diane is using her new favorite yarn - Cascade 220 Fingering in color 9619 Ember Heather. She really likes the thickness - right between lace and fingering. You can't beat the price too!


We enjoy making the same project together!  It's fun to see how different yarns work with the pattern and learn hints from each other.  We'd love it if you would join us!
