Thursdays Are For Knit Group

Today  most faces I saw were wearing their mid-winter, white look.  Thank goodness for bright colourful yarn, colourful knitters and off-colour  colourful stories to brighten a dreary day. 

Gail's lovely Noro Diagonal Scarf has great colour.  She held it just so - giving me a great shot of the scarf and a great shot of Mona.  Sorry you didn't make the cut, Gail.

Camera-shy Tanya has reached the decrease stage of her  colourful Fishy Hat. 
Great work for a knitter that three weeks ago, didn't know how to hold needles.   She did have a dropped stitch that Nicki offered to 'ladder' up for her.  Work that  took much concentration, it seems.

Nicki's own knitting is the  beginning of a colourful masterpiece.  Using left-over sock yarn, she has knit five squares in  Log Cabin style. 

She intends to knit another five to make a  shawl two squares deep.  Tanya asked her if it is taking a long time to knit.  Nicki's answer?  "Yes because I have to knit the socks first."  I do have bag of left-over sock yarn bits and pieces that I can contribute, Nicki. 

Her  squares brightened this dull winter's day. 

Bonnie has finished the body of her bright blue sweater and worked today on the sleeves.  It seems, though that something distracted both her and Joanne.

No colour in our faces, but lots of colour in our lives. What do non-knitters do for colour?

What a gorgeous idea knitting log cabin squares!! I love the light/dark shading.

Wow, those squares are wonderful, and I literally did laugh out loud at Nicki's comment about having to knit the socks first. Thanks, as always, for sharing the lovely projects your group is working on. :-)

I think they play video games and watch movies. :)
