Projects: Current, Finished, Fantasy and Wearing


  • Current. Mittens! She picked back up her project bag dedicated just to mittens and she's having fun knitting on mittens again. She still dislikes knitting the thumbs so she is saving those for later.  
  • Finished. The DK weight Sherri Pullover knit in Brown Sheep Stratosphere (3-ply dk weight 100% superwash wool) in the color Hubble (a deep emerald green). Next up is pattern math and edits. Then sending it to the tech editor. 
  • Current. She cast on two more Sherri Pullovers! One in worsted weight and one in fingering weight. Look for both to come out in 2024. (That makes 4 different yarn weights for this sweater for those of you keeping track.)     
  • Current. Wee Evergreens by Sara Schira (Imagined Landscapes). This was a GAL project she picked up to support other knitwear designers. She tossed the stash and found a nice pile of greens in different weights to give her an assorted forest of different sized wee trees. So far she has finished one tiny tree. This is a fun winter project!

Topic of the Show: Top-Down and Bottom-Up Sweater Construction

Sherri and Tamara take some time to talk about some top-down and bottom-up sweater construction. There are positives and negatives for both ways to knit a sweater. Tamara is very firmly team top-down construction. Sherri leans more towards bottom-up construction.
