Thursdays Are For Knit Group

Back into the routine of Thursday Knit group and it feels great. Weather in Meaford this  summer was apparently much the same as weather in Hearst - wetter and cooler than normal.

Did that mean  - less beach time and more knitting time?  Or did that mean better gardening weather and so less knitting time.  You can be the judge of that.

Wee socks from Sharon and a 'don't know what it will be yet' piece from Ingrid knit with a very very fine Americo thick and thin cotton. A sweater for a grandaughter from Gail and a'condo' scarf from Doreen. Knit with a circular needle that has one big gauge tip and one much finer.  Produces an automatic drop stitch look with much less fuss. Doreen realized this summer  - long after she purchased the condo needles - that she could have created her own 'condo' needles from one of her several sets of interchangeables.  Oh well.

Wee things for the spinners and weavers sale,

a sweater from Carol,

and socks from Sharon.

I don't know about the beach or the gardening, but sure looks like lots of knitting to me.

It was great to follow you on your vavation and great to see the gang all in their chairs knitting away! Love that blue sweater from Carol!
