Thursdays Are For Knit Group

Sandy is under a Horst Schultz spell - addicted, she says, to mitred squares. Inspired by Mr. Schultz's methodology and knit with Koigu's beautiful wool, this is the beginnings of a baby blanket.
Smart lady, she did some colouring planning before casting on square number one.
Like the vest she showed us last Thursday, this promises to be another work of art.

The rest of us knit on in more traditional , but no less satisfying, fashion. Knitting her way to a full washer load, Sharon plans to felt mittens.

Gail finished a little pink sweater in Cabin Fever Cotton Tweed and has started another in green Marble yarn.
The green sweater will go to the little fellow next door, recipient of last week's hats, soon to celebrate his first birthday.

Doreen has been busy knitting 'preemie' hats. In keeping with the tiny hats, she special ordered a tiny needle.
The needle portion is less than two inches in length! Stretched tip to tip, they measure just under nine inches. Guaranteed to cramp I'm sure.

I did my best to get rid of some no-longer-wanted books and patterns.
About 20 pounds went to Knit Group but sadly, about 10 pounds came home. I'll try again next week.

I, too, am addicted to mitered squares, short rows, and all things modular with knitting. Love Sandy's blanket!

I have those 9" circs, some 12"-ers, too. Tried to use them on a pair of socks and within a couple days had tendonitis in my tensioning index finger. Ugh.
