Yesterday was that day, and it couldn't have been better. The weather was gorgeous for the drive, the show and tell was awesome and the company great fun.
This year was Hilda's turn to host. Hilda lives in a century-old, Victorian farm house. A farm house complete with an elegant, curving, stair case, deep, deep window sills, the complete quiet of a rural location and a gorgeous, newly-renovated kitchen. Add to all that a delicious vegetarian lunch and many, many knitting projects and you have the perfect, knitterly day.
Take a look.
Hilda purchased a one pound cone of Shelridge Farms Fingering Weight yarn at the Woodstock Fleece Festival. She could probably make several thousand of these fingerless mittens and hats with her cone.
This blanket is knit with Knit Picks Chroma.
Hilda likes the look of this hat OFF the head.
This wrap intrigued me. The holey stitch, knit with several yarn overs, was a new one for Hilda
And of course, there was Grandmotherly knitting.
Hilda has the cutest, little, white dog. He didn't appreciate us intruding on his space though and growled every time we moved. Nonetheless, Hilda has knit him a colourful coat using a Sally Melville pattern.
Hilda is still working on this sock-yarn, crocheted blanket. I first saw it last year at our get together and I imagine I will see it next year too.
I loved Hilda's almost finished cable sweater.
