On the third Monday of the month a group of enthusiastic knitters meet in the Resource Room at the Duxbury Free Library. From 6:00 - 8:00 you can find knitters of various skill levels with yarn between their fingers. We would love you to join us. If you can't, follow us here!

One Skein projects = Magazines

Have you ever read either a really thick book or a book that grabbed you so much that when you finished reading it . . . well, you weren't really finished with it? The characters stayed with you, maybe haunted your thoughts a little? After spending so much time with the Outlander series, I have found I have been filling my reading time with magazines, a little non-fiction . . . and by a little I mean skimming about the Roosevelts. But I can't quite commit to the Bully Pulpit or No Ordinary Time . . . even after watching the Ken Burns series!)

Just in case you can't make it
 in to the library to see it.

I have found the same to be true with my knitting. I have finished Judy's sweater (make sure you come in the library to see her wearing it!), and I can't quite decide what to start next. I've dug all my pattern books out, I've been surfing through Ravelry . . . I don't know . . . nothing is grabbing me. Should I felt something? Pullover? A Nora Gaughan?

While I have been pondering, I have been working on quick things - a couple of cowls and a pair of fingerless gloves. 

Hmm . . . Those quick one skein projects . . . perhaps they are the knitting equivalent to magazines?

Until next time, keep your nose in a book or your fingers in fiber.
