Knitting group was last night, and though we dearly missed some of our gang, we had a rollicking good time. Christina and Peggy were there. Check out the needles that Christina convinced her mom she needed to try. Yes, they are that big (but isn’t it true that it’s not how big your needles are, it’s what you do with them?). These babies require lots of energy to wield – Peggy was breaking out in a sweat with the effort, I think. Christina’s sweater which was a ribbing a couple of months ago is now looking very much like a sweater indeed. The colors are fabulous, yes?
Lisa has finished her holiday shrug (on the couch next to her) and is starting on her next project. I thought it was the waist of a sweater that matched a new year’s resolution, but she tells us it is the neckband to a stash-busting poncho.
Kim is really getting close to the finish of a sweater for sweet Rylie. And I’m close to the finish of the EZ sweater for donation, but I am about out of yarn. Kathy frowns at how close but yet how far I am.
Kathy was visual aid queen. Not only did she bring lovely silk mitts, a sweater for which Carolyn is anxiously awaiting (it is lovely, and Carolyn will be lovely in it. Will she get to wear it this year?), and, via Macbook, a lovely shawl that she already gave to a friend.
I hope your Monday was at least half as good.
