Well, where has the year gone? Today was the last knit group for 2013. To celebrate there was food. Knitting, food and laughter. A perfect afternoon just before Christmas.
Wilma worked on last minute Christmas gifts. She picks up the crochet hook when time is of the essence. Here she has pot holders and a towel for the stove.
Look at this complex piece Jean has on the needles.
This is a vest that is a labour of love. But look what Jean noticed last night.
Now, go back to the upper picture and see where that wonky cable is located. Yep, that's right. Close to the bottom. Jean says she is going to live with it. She says there has been too much hard work to rip back. But Ingrid and I tried to talk her into cutting the stitch and crossing it correctly. Jean was skeptical. I believe she felt that repair method might end up being more headache than the error.
Sharon is working on Wingspan. Garter stitch and short rows. An easy knit she says.
Lorrie was also working on neckware. The Honey Cowl. With two great blue yarns.
Doreen arrived looking very festive. Isn't that a great sweater? Knit by a friend and gifted to Doreen. Lucky lady, you are Doreen.
Here's a sight you don't often see. Take a look at what Ingrid is doing. Can you see where the circular needle is? Around her neck. She is ripping back. She was meant to increase across the row - that would be the row about 4 inches back - but discovered that she had decreased. She doesn't look too happy, does she?
And did I mention there was food?
