Thursdays Are For Knit Group

With spring-like   summer-like   weather today,   Ingrid thought most of our knitters were out in their gardens - or maybe, like Sharon and Nicki,  at the Home & Garden Show.

 But those of use that did show up had fun and lots of knitting.

Ruth has the most interesting project carrier.  She brings her knitting in a tea towel.

 Multi purpose carrier, I presume.  If things get wet, she is prepared.  Her current project is another little baby sweater.

Bonnie looks very pleased with her FO, a gorgeous cabled sweater,

as well as her almost FO, a baby 'sleeper'

I couldn't help but take Ingrid's picture today.

 Her dress simply screams  summer!   In March!  Ingrid loves to swim,  swimming every summer's day in Georgian Bay, just a few blocks from her home.  When I told her  that on the 6 o'clock news, there were pictures of children swimming in the bay, her eyes lit up.  She decided that  tomorrow she will take her first dip of the year.  The earliest ever.

Wilma is working on her 'featherweight' cardi.

 She is using Americo Cotton Flamme and is having trouble with the plys separating causing the outer ply to twist and bunch up.  Both Sharon and I knit Featherweight from Cotton Flamme and had no trouble.  Has anyone experienced this issue or does Wilma just have a funny twist to her wrist?  The sweater will be  a perfect accompaniment to the blouse she was wearing, don't you think?

I left early today.  I had a very important appointment.

Sorry I couldn't stay, but sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

I am loving this weather. I'm just hoping that March doesn't go out like a lion.
