Thursdays Are For Knit Group

Minus 17 Celsius was the temperature on the van thermometer as I drove to knit group today.  Accompanied by high winds and  blowing snow, is it any wonder we were all happy to be inside with our knitting needles?

Doreen seems happy. 
Although she was struggling with the neckline shaping of her sweater
 She also said she hadn't checked her gauge.  Her goal was to use up some yarn  - and  - the sweater will fit someone.

Sharon on the other hand isn't very happy with her yarn.

 She is using Dawn to knit her second Featherweight.  Just the knitting is making this yarn pill.  50% Merino, 50% silk - you wouldn't think!

Sharon is lucky enough to have a new baby in her family.  One who will be warm and toasty in this sweet hat and matching socks.

Because I had been away when Gail showed off her gorgeous American Doll dress, she brought it again today for me to see.

It is so-o-o-o cute.

Not to mention all the other doll clothes she has finished. 

Wilma  was knitting  either out of extreme love or the desire to not have to  knit an entire pair of socks.  Hard to say which might cause a knitter to replace the toes in her husband's socks. 

The very end of the toe had a hole in it.  Get those toenails cut, Hubby!

Lorrie is knitting fingerless mittens with a Valentine's theme. 

Covered in lacey hearts, they will make a lovely gift.

Happy warm times inside the knittng room at Meaford Library today despite the frigid temperatures outside.
