Thursdays Are For Knit Group

Was 50 Shades Of Grey a book about the weather?  Could well have been a description of the colour of the skies this spring.  The only bright spot in our day was in the room at knit group.

Sharon R is working on her Cinnie.  Apparently,  my green one inspired her to knit one for herself.  She said she is quite proud of herself that she can knit well enough to make a Cinnie.  Indeed she should be proud of herself -  it is looking gorgeous.


Here you see the back panel and the left side of the front and back.  She is about to start the sleeve. 
Below you see Sharon's attempt to hide from the camera.
 You can run but ------

Cinnie is a Chic Knits pattern designed by Bonne Marie Burns.  Popular designer at knit group today, as Wilma was working on one too.  Her pattern is CeCe.  
This one, she said she started in Pima Cotton about two years ago then set it aside.  But she thinks it is too small.  Yep, sure looks like it Wilma.   

Bonnie brought  her finished, Mitered Square pillow for show and tell.   The three taupe squares in the bottom right part of the pillow are close to  the colour of her furniture, she said.  Throwing the pillow on the sofa, she thought "Wow!  That looks good!"  Always nice to have a successful finish to a project.

Joanne was back in town today and came to knit with us. 

She has moved to Toronto to be closer to family  but misses her knitting friends, small town living and Georgian Bay.   From time to time, she drives up to spend time at her house on the water and when here, stops in to see us. 

Babies are big on everyone's mind these days.  Sandy's grand son is expected to arrive in this world Monday and Carol has been knitting a sweater for him.


Better seen in the close-up below, it is a hooded cardi. Cute and just in time.

Jean, too,  is expecting a grand child but doesn't yet know if it is a boy or  a girl.  She picked bright, cheerful, gender-neutral colours for this Baby Surprise Jacket. 

The yarn is Chamelon from  Michael's. What a great choice for a baby project.  

The day  might have been grey, but definitely not dreary at knit group,  with all the bright colours round the table today.
