Thursdays Are For Knit Group

Even when posted on a Friday, Thursdays Are Still For Knit Group.  And thanks to Nan for the gentle prodding about no blog postings.  "Where are you?" she asked.  "Are you sick?"  No, not sick.  Just busy doing some sorting, spring cleaning and knitting without enough  progress for posting.  No one at knit group seemed to be having the no progress problem though.  Well, perhaps Wilma.

Ingrid of course has another new and unique project.  Shades of denim, -not the greys that my camera shows - in a tunic style, this piece is another one-of-a-kind.

The colourful shoulder pieces were knit separately then knitted on.

The wonderful zig-zag hem.
Does that inspire everyone to try knitting a tunic on small needles with fine yarn?  Or shall we leave it to Ingrid?

Gail had started a cute baby sweater with Astra.

 She is still working her way through a box of yarn given to her by the husband of a friend who passed away a year ago December.  That's  a lot of yarn.

Sharon R is working on a baby dress as well.  Different reason than Gail, though. 

Sharon, being a relatively new knitter,  challenges herself to learn something new with each project.  This little dress has taught her a new stitch design, and the top-down technique.

What is Sharon making?

A cowl.  Lovely yarn with a bit of a sparkle.  The ends are meant to be sewn together and Sharon thinks she might put a twist in it before she does that sewing.

 Jean has finished those two at a time, on two circs, leg warmers, knit with Kroy sock yarn. 

Too late, Gail told her the easier way to do leg warmers is to head to the thrift shop, buy a wool sweater and cut off the sleeves for leg warmers.  Now that's a plan.

Wilma is still working on the grey cabled vest. 

She is tired of it she says.  So tired of it, she took a time out and knit a small  baby blanket to give the vest a rest.

We've heard from all our snow birds and by mid April, they will all be back in town and at knit group, we hope.  Till then, we'll keep our needles moving.

Definitely agree - fine yarn, small needle tunics can be "assigned" to Ingrid's "department"!
