Back home from her western summer, is Wilma.
Painted Desert shawl on her needles. Started before departing for Alberta and B.C. but left at home. She said she was struggling with the pattern and left the shawl at home in favour of easier 'knit & navigate' projects. In this brightly coloured sock yarn, the shawl indeed looks like a painted desert and pattern struggles seem to be behind her now.
Little Ruth came to knitting today.
Knowing that Ruth was divorced from her first husband and separated from her second husband, I was curious about which of those men had left her a widow. The second husband, she said. The one from whom she was separated. And there was not a bit of sadness in her attitude at all. Grinning from ear to ear, in fact, she was. Ruth makes me smile. No spring chicken, but no moss growing under her feet either.
She managed to pick up a bag of Kroy FX sock yarn at Stedman's yarn tent sale in July. 6 balls for $15.00. The socks are cheerful for sure. I love them.
Gail has a sweater started for a grand daughter.
Sharon R spent her time picking up stitches along the fronts of her summer 'tee'.
We missed Sandy B today as she is spending the week at her daughter's cottage. With this cool, rainy weather she is enjoying lots of knitting time, I'm sure. I can't wait to see what finished pieces she brings back to show us.
Cool weather. Knitters back from vacation. Feels like fall. I'm expecting to see 'wool' any day soon.
i am with sharon..i hate seaming and picking up for sleeves and bands.but in the end patience pays off.
