Sandy arrived with a finished outfit for the new grand daughter to be born within the next two weeks.
Nicki, who we haven't seen much this summer, came to knitting with a crocheted piece she started a long time ago. Decades ago she said. Crocheted with gossamer thin thread and very small needle. Take a look.
This is the type of work, I would never even think about doing. Well done, Nicki.
Sandy's sister Sue, bag lady Sue as we call her, has discovered a source of great knitting bags - Graces Cases - and had one made for Sandy. You give your wants/needs to the seamstress, choose your colours and she creates a fantastic, one of a kind bag.
Grooves for needles and pockets, pockets, pockets. All these things zipper out so you can carry them separately if you want. 'Silly expensive' for a knitting bag, said Sandy. Not considering the detailed work.
And the excited talk today was of the Knitters
Christmas Fair in Kitchener this Saturday. Two cars of us head down this year. Before I came home I went to the bank. Got my cash, got my list. I'm ready.
