Thursdays Are For Knit Group

It is our last knit group until 2016 and we marked the occasion by going  out to lunch before going to  the library to knit.  Dolls were on the agenda today.  Both the well-dressed knitters -  dolls for sure - and the little knitted ones, destined for  refugee children.

Sandy is back from Florida.  With a gorgeous Hornshaw swift -  a gift from her sister  in honour of Sandy's impending  'Big -O'  birthday.
 The Hornshaw swift is hand carved of beautiful wood and has the added benefit of not needing to be screwed to a table top. We are all jealous Sandy. Of both the swift and your sister.

There were magazines to peruse and candy to eat.

Little Ruth joined us and showed off the dog coat she designed and knit for her little dog. Very clever, Ruth.

 Gail has a good start on a beautiful, Noro, directional scarf.  Knit with yarn she scoffed from the table filled with Sandy's sister Sue's cast offs, a few months back. 

Look at those cute American Doll outfits Gail knit.  She has been all about the dolls this fall.  Barbie, American and  Izzy.  Gail has knit for all of them.
From all the 'dolls' in Meaford, Merry Christmas to you all.  And happy knitting.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of you! We had also our last meeting with the colleagues. It's even sad that you'll meet only in 2016. But the time's going on, and we should take its challenged with courage and strength.
