Thursdays Are For Knit Group

Thursdays might be for  knit group but obviously my routine is still somewhat discombobulated from my Gaspe trip.  I completely forgot to write this post when I got home from knitting yesterday.  Or perhaps it was that I was actually at knit group in July when normally I am in Hearst.  Either way, here it is  - a day late and  a dollar short.  No shortness of fun and knitting.

Doreen, has an almost completed 'thing'. She has knit this piece - one of those pieces that is meant to be sewn together in such a way as to be able to wear it to the front or to the back and still look fashionable. 

But she cannot figure out how to  do that.  It is pinned - but not correctly according to Doreen and she wonders still, how to do it.  You'll figure it out, Doreen.  The puzzle doesn't stop her from looking chic and summery in her great hat and lovely scarf.

Not many of us can - or at lest I cannot -  wear a hat with as much panache as Doreen.

Sandy, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but life is all about choices.  All those books and all that yarn.  You will have to decide.

Poor Ingrid.  She is having back issues.  She can lie down.  She can stand.  But sitting is too painful.  It was amusing  to watch her knit standing up. 

This latest creation is to be a scarf.  Big and cozy -  for her grand daughter who likes big and cozy things around her neck.  Hope your back heals soon, Ingrid.

A wonderful treat for me to be at knit group in July.  We hope to heave for Hearst in a few days  - so  - all my Thursday friends, I'll see you  in late August.  Until then, happy knitting.

Hi ES,
I am still struggling with the design I promised Shelridge Yarns. Although originally intended to be a top down set in sleeve pattern, my pattern-writing skills being as limited as they are didn't let me wirte it down so that anyone else could understand whaat I meant to do. So I changed directions and am knitting it bottom up - an easier knit and an easier write. I'll let the world know when the pattern is ready - by the speed I'm going it won't be soon.
