I missed a special day at knit group last week. Fred and I headed to Ottawa last Thursday to catch son Peter's art show in the Byward Market. Little did I know that Sandy was bringing bags of yarn from sister Sue, the knitter we call Bag Lady Sue. We started calling Sue that because she knit mostly hand bags that she then felted. But maybe we should call her that because about once a year she sends us bags of her cast offs. Everyone took their fill last Thursday then they sent me an email saying they had saved me 'my colours.'
Sister Sue buys high-end yarns. Cast-offs from Sue in my colours? Yippee. But, I was expecting a few balls. Perhaps a small grocery bag of balls. I sure wasn't expecting this.
Ruth, examining poor Doreen's scarf disaster (she inadvertently pulled out the needle) is wearing a sweater knit with yarn from Sue's 2014 great yarn give away.
Sharon brought her wheel to knit group today.
Custom Woolen Mill purchased while on a summer vacation in Alberta.
Wilma wondered if her baby blanket was large enough.
Quite a few of our knitters are still showing off knits from their Knitters Fair purchases. Sharon R has a lovely cowl. Intended as a Christmas gift, Sharon thought she should try it out to make sure it works.
Deana is almost finished her colourful cowl.
And Sandy has another - you guessed it , shawl - almost finished with her Knitters Fair yarn.
Such a lot of yarny goodness. I love Thursdays.
