For starters, Happy Birthday Mom! My mother is a knitter too, and she’s been working on Posy from the same collection in Rowan #35 as my Alice.
I’m hoping to accomplish some knitting myself, and finally finish the shoulder/neck shaping on the Pegase hoodie back.
Not much else to report on this rainy dreary Wednesday, I’m afraid.

Happy Birthday to your mom! Mine just celebrated hers last week. She’s a die-hard crocheter and I’ve tried teaching her to knit, but we just ended up laughing at her attempts… We love our moms!

I just went through and looked at the gallery. I’ve had my eye on Maggie for a while and I’ve finally convinced myself to buy some KSH for it!

Jackie, can I ask you a question about the Phildar cowl neck made with Eponge? I was swatching last night and I can’t get gauge. In fact, I can’t really see the stitches so I’m having trouble counting on top of it all. I’m on my 4th attempt on US2 (because I don’t want to go with an even smaller needle!) and I’m wrapping the yarn only once around. When I wrapped it twice around, my stitches are further apart. Did you have gauge problems with this? Were you holding the yarn taunt? I noticed this yarn is a bit stretchy. Thanks!

Happy birthday, Jackie’s Mom!

Happy belated birthday, Jackie’s mom! That Posy sweater reminds me of the Vintage Knits wavy line sweater. The square neckline is so cute. I hope we get to see the finished sweater (maybe a mom/daughter Rowan #35 photo shoot?).

Evelyn, I am not much of a gauge checker to be honest, so I don’t know if I reached gauge or not, but I am a tight knitter so I did hold it taut, yes, and I did wrap around twice. The stitches are supposed to be spread out so you get that ripple/stripe effect, or what’s known as “drop stitch”. Since it’s stretchy, I just assumed it would fit me, and it does.
