Ishbel, a beautiful, Ysolda Teaque design made even more beautiful with the Twisted Fiber Arts 50/50 Merino and Silk 'Muse' that Sue used. Sandy brought along a bit of a skein in my colours -down in the lower right of the picture - trying to convince me that I should knit this shawl. Not much of a shawl wearer, I resisted. But once home and gawking at the shawl on ravelry, I wonder if maybe Ishbel is a shawl I might wear.
Poor Carol. Her Whisper Cardigan was giving her grief today.
Gloria has started another 'doll' - Emily - by Jean Greenhowe.
Nicki is on her last, gorgeous, sock yarn square.
Now comes the task of laying them out so as to offer the greatest appeal, then sewing them all together. A couple of years back, someone asked Nicki if the squares took a long time to knit considering that the yarn is so fine. Her answer still makes me chuckle.
"Well, yea. I have to knit the socks first."
Take some sock yarn and some Koigu - leftovers all - add in one patient knitter and you get a beautiful baby blanket. Someday.
Today was my last knit group until late summer. We are on our way to the trailer in Hearst early next week, where Thursdays will be for swimming or fishing or boating or hangin' out with grand kids. Fun, but not the same.
