Thursdays Are For Knit Group

Thursdays are the best day of the week.  That was repeated more than once at knit group today.  And who wouldn't think so when they could see the gorgeous knits on display this afternoon.

Sandy's beaded, cruise shawl is almost finished.
She tried it on to today to the delight of all of us.  It is a wonderful piece.  And from what I can see, totally  free of flaws.
Sandy has had a stressful time lately, with  her husband  in a Toronto hospital, two hours from home, for most of the winter.  If you can knit this complicated a piece under those conditions, Sandy, you can knit anything.

Sharon knit this delightful baby hat with yarn she scored at our stash swap.  With that one ball of yarn, she knit a pair of socks and still had enough leftover for this baby hat.

Last week, Wilma was just casting on for this delightful summer cowl, today she is wearing it.  Knit with Cascade cotton, it is  a very pretty accessory for a summer tee.  I might just have to make one of those for myself.  I'll have to wait though, until Wilma remembers the pattern name.  Woman of a certain age, she is.

Someone who knew someone,  told someone that there are a bunch of knitters who  meet weekly on Thursdays at the library.  Someone who heard the news had yarn to give away.  Today, a stranger appeared at the door and bags of yarn were piled on the table.   That's how things happen on Thursdays.   

It didn't  take Deanna long to  coral what she wanted.

Another great Thursday.  Lots of fun and laughter.  Lots of yarn and knitting.

Oh how nice! Sometimes lace is the best thing to knit while you are worried about someone ill. It kept me going and mine was a pretty easy, not full lace (as in not all the rows were lace) I gave it to a very dear friend.

It is so nice to be back on my big computer. Maybe now I will be able to keep up again. I just never get there on the laptop.
