Join the ImagiKnit staff in a Nordiska KAL!

December 22, 2018

Feb 13 Update: 

Allison wearing the Nordiska that Diane made.  Doesn't it look great on her?

Feb 12 Update:

Sonja and Laura in their finished Nordiska's!  Super cute!

Jan 28 Update: 

Sonja finished her Nordiska - yay!  It's currently blocking and we can't wait to see it on her!

Diane is currently working on the second sleeve. Modifications made so far: ripped back to the armholes, added a few more stitches and knit the rest of the body using US 5 needles.  Knit 6.5 inches before doing colorwork. Sleeve 1 was done using US 4 needles and made longer.  Did not knit Rows 41 through 43 of the chart. 

 

Laura is working on the sleeves. Picture is coming soon!

 

Jan 22 Update:

Sonja, Laura and Diane have been working on the colorwork portion of the body. So addicting!

We love top down sweaters as we're able to try the sweaters on. The sweaters fit great on Sonja and Laura. Not so great for Diane - not as much positive ease or as long as desired. She's ripped out a portion of the sweater and is making modifications. We'll see how it goes.....

Jan 14 Update:

Sonja, Laura and Diane have separated body and sleeves - yay! Sonja has already started the colorwork.

Ashley started her Nordiska - looks great so far!

We're making good progress.....

It's a fun knit! The cable twists keep this fun and interesting.

We're happy to see many of you are joining us!  Please send us pics of your yarn choices and we'll get them posted!

Jan 03 Update: 

We've selected colors and are ready to cast on! 

Sonja is using yarn from her stash. Love that pop of yellow! 

Laura is using Mechita and Nuble. The burnt orange is gorgeous - this will be her main color. 

Diane is using Herriot Fine (one of her favs!).

Ashley is using Mechita.  She's shaking things up and will be using 2 colors. Love the color combo!

It's interesting to see that we've all selected a gold/yellow color.....

ImagiKnit Staff Sushi Making Party

September 18, 2017

The ImagiKnit staff got together at Allison's for a sushi-making party!

Teacher extraordinaire Judy doesn't just knit and crochet! She prepared all the amazing sushi-fillings and gave lessons on sushi-rolling techniques.  (See- we aren't kidding when we say Judy can do everything!)

Steve was in charge of tending the bar and was dressed for the job. 

He makes a mean lychee martini!

We were pretty good students. Doesn't this look like it was made by a pro? 

Judy even provided containers so we could bring some home! 

Here's a sign of a good party (mochi ice cream dregs.....).

Thank you Allison and Judy!

Staff Creations: Nephew Knits

November 09, 2015

Staffer Anja just adores knitting for babies, so when she found out her brother and his wife were expecting, her knitting needles fired up real quick!

Of course she's still constantly knitting for her new nephew Ellis, but we thought we'd share with you her recent finished projects!

Here's the little pumpkin sitting with his proud papa! Auntie Anja made Ellis this hat just in time for Halloween.

This darling kimono and hat set knit up perfectly in Plymouth's Bio Sesia, a fingering weight organic cotton. 

Auntie Anja can crochet with the best of 'em! She used a simple chevron pattern and alternated colors of Euroflax. Since Ellis was born in the middle of summer, linen made for the perfect fabric. 

Anja knit this adorable baby onesie with Rowan's Summerlite 4-Ply. The pattern is from Shibui. It's so unique!

We can't wait to see what she cooks up next!
