I looked to my right and there were three more - Angela, Ruth and Jean - with Ingrid being the only non-sock knitter in that line up.
Jean's socks deserve special mention. She knits toe-up, two-at-a-time on circular needles.
And take a look at her yarn!
Ingrid was dressed in her own hand knits from top to bottom today. This is her sock yarn skirt. A gored skirt where the gores were each knit separately then crocheted together. That one-at-a-time method allowed her to knit the skirt as travel knitting. I like the way the crocheted columns break up the bands of pattern. They add great interest to the finished look and prevent the skirt from becoming a perfectly, horizontally striped piece.
Today, Ingrid wore the skirt with another hand knit, a colour- coordinating grey vest. You look lovely, Ingrid.
For the first time since I can't remember when, there was enough sun and warmth today to sit outside for a mid - morning coffee. A sunny morning followed by an afternoon of knitting - pretty perfect day, don't you think?
