Thursdays Are For Knit Group

Not an outdoor scene such as opened last Thursday's post, but still, another great view to greet us as we arrived at knit group today.
This is a painting on the wall in the basement room of the Children's library. The attic work at the library is still not complete, making our usual upper room un-useable. Today, we knit in the basement. On those itty, bitty children's chairs. But hey! Who cares? It's knitting. It's laughter. It's fun.

First up, Tanya's Fish Hat. Look. Done enough to actually see the 'fish'. Way to go Tanya!
She has switched from circular to double pointed needles for this last, narrow bit of knitting. A great opportunity to poke her eye out with 8 different points, she said.

Ingrid was knitting today. She had some hand surgery a few weeks ago
which kept her from knitting for ten!!! days. She said you don't realize how much of a part of your life it is until you can't do it for ten days. But she's back at it now.
This is a sleeve - take four and final take - Ingrid said, for a new tunic top she' knitting.

Sharon has been busy making scarves with her other hobby. Weaving. I know, I know. Who would ever think a knitter needs a second hobby? But Sharon weaves AND knits. Beautiful scarves, Sharon.

Nicki arrived wearing her 'origami' top. She and Bonnie both knit this sweater and both struggled to understand how to put together. Finally sewn up, it looks good, Nicki. Very 'today'.

Nicki also brought her lovely fairisle work.
The knitting is exquisite, the colours beautiful. A lovely project, Nicki.

Christie's black and blue mittens were finished last night. They look great so I took them to knit group to be admired before mailing. So anxious to catch the 4 pm mailing deadline, I forgot to take a picture of them. Dang! Hopefully, Christie will send me one.

It doesn't seem to matter where they put us. Upper room, basement or kick us out entirely, we always have fun at knit group.

I love those little chairs. They are just right to sit on and knit...but then I am short.

Beautiful mural and, of course, the knitting is always spectacular. Can't wait to see that that fish hat looks like.
