Thursdays Are For Knit Group

The best part about routine is that Thursdays come around regularly.  Thursday afternoons, of course, bring knit group and this week, some fabulous show and tell.

Sharon was glad of the cooler weather today .  It gave her a chance to wear and show off her Essential Cardigan. Knit with the yarn she purchased in England - here.

The collar is adaptable.  Wear it flat as above, or turned as below. 

Great job, Sharon.  It fits perfectly and looks exactly as the Shepherd - and the sheep -  hoped, I'm sure.  Cozy.

Nicki showed us what a labour of love look like.  This little elf took her the better part of a day to create.
  She spun the yarn, then knit and stuffed the elf.  They sell for $3 at the Pottawatomi Spinners and Weavers Annual sale.

Wilma is still working on her Shelridge Yarns shawl.  She purchased the yarn at the KW Knitters Fair.  It's gorgeous, Wilma.  Matches your blouse. 

Sandy too purchased the yarn for this shawl at the Kitchener Waterloo Knitters Fair. 
She has shown us this shaw, finished but unblocked, a few weeks ago.  She showed it again today - finished but yet still unblocked.  In addition to the yarn Sandy also purchased blocking wires at the fair.  She is unsure of how to use them, so the shawl remains unblocked.  Block it, Sandy.

After an afternoon at knit group, I think I can safely say - Life is back to normal.    Hurray!
