Thursdays Are For Knit Group And Survivor

Finally finished, Ingrid wore her Koigu mitred square dress to knit group today. With the months of work it involved, Ingrid calls it her 'dream dress turned nightmare.

The centre portion is knit of squares, mitred. Stitches are picked up along the edge of a finished square to knit the next square. Then the triangular pieces were knit and crocheted to the squares. According to Ingrid, there were k-zillions of ends to sew in. It is a one of a kind piece - a work of art.

Gloria - our newest member - well, I'm not sure about her. She is knitting an upside- down doll.
When you lift her skirt, you get another doll. I wonder just what kind of child is going to play with this doll who has a face under her skirt!!

Pat knit herself a new sweater. Looks lovely, Pat. And a change from stuffed toys.

Sharon's top down sweater is nearing the 'great divide' as Deb Gemmell refers to it. The point in the sweater where the sleeves are separated from the body. It looks great so far. The yarn is Knit Picks tweed in a lovely shade of purple.
Sharon turned 29 again today. She had a luncheon date, then came to knit group bearing a box of chocolates.
Lunch, then yarn and chocolate. What better birthday could a knitter have?

I didn't linger too long at knit group today, as there was something special waiting for me at home.

Grand kids from Hearst in the hot tub. Gotta love March Break.

Now for Survivor. The poor Heroes. James injured and another challenge lost. The merge better come soon.

LOL! I remember those upside down dolls...always thought they were a bit odd.

Ingrid's dress truly is a work of art - just beautiful!!!

Your knit group is not only prolific but also has wide ranging knitting interests! The Koigu creation is amazing! Please pass on this knitter's congratulations to Ingrid!

This looks like the same dress. Did Ingrid design it?
