Thursdays Are For Knit Group

Sunshine  and mild temperatures today!  Finally!  That sun brightened the day almost as much as the knitting on display at knit group.
Wilma has been busy knitting  One Hour Hats.  Or Crocheted Butterfly Hats as they are called in this link. The front row displayed here  are all  Wilma's hats, the back row mine. 

With that many One Hour Hats, Wilma appears to be working a full day.  Each hat is a little different - some with flowers, some with butterflies. And all in great spring colours.

Joanne is knitting  a beautiful, wool Diagonal Scarf.  If she were to bring all her scarves to knit group, there would be one - or maybe more  - for each of us, with some to spare.   Next to her great mittens, she loves to knit scarves.

How do you like the colour of the socks Gail is knitting?

It's the kind of colour that makes one smile.  Gail says these  are Christmas gift socks.  Christmas is till eight months away, Gail. That's an early start.  Which could be the reason for the smile.

Doreen is wearing a lovely scarf today, knit for her by Marlene who sadly can only come to knit group when she has a day off work. 

 It's gorgeous yarn.  All thick and thin and nubbly.  A very stylish  accessory.

Ruth has a good start on a sweater for herself.
It started as a baby sweater but Ruth thought the colour not good for a baby.  Really!   I bet she just realized how well it matches her shirt!

Winter might be the traditional time for knitting, but with these bright, cheerfully-colourful yarns our knitters remain happily stitching right through the advent of spring.

I'm so jealous! I wish we had a group of knitters in my area. Any thoughts on how to start one?

Wow - 'love the new blog look! At first I thought I was on the wrong blog!

Great looking new format, Brenda. I love the header picture!

Please tell Gail that we have that colour of sock yarn at the store. I've always thought it a little bright. I may have to rethink that now because I really love the way her sock looks. Bright yes, but very cool.

Wow! Love your new format and your "I Gotz Yarn!" picture. As always, the group blows me away with all the knitted loveliness - especially those orange socks. Wow! I've made a few of those diagonal scarves and really enjoy that pattern.
