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!

Monday Night Knitting Group

After last nights group, I think perhaps our group should be renamed! Instead of Monday Night Knitting, we'll call it Monday Night Fiber!! Joining us for the night were 4 fabulous women and their spinning wheels and drop spindles!

Just sitting there listening to the quiet hum of the wheels was so relaxing.

Watching their piles of fleece turn into yarn right before our eyes was almost hypnotic . . . and it looked so effortless . . . then Martha let me sit at her wheel and try.

OMG!! It's not nearly as easy as they made it look!

Pat joined us again with her weaving . . . 

The picture doesn't really show it . . . but there are beads woven in!!! She also explained how to create 'the wavy effect'. (I'm sure there is an official term that sounds better than 'wavy effect'.) The finished project will be a purse. 

And of course there were knitters . . .

Joan is working on 
socks again . . . .

Joy is going to make a sweater in this gorgeous green that we all assured her was the 'in' color. 

Here she is making a swatch to test her gauge, (as every good knitter should do!!).

Liz came and learned how to sew her hand-warmers together.

And there were more . . . but apparently my skills as a photographer are lacking . . .  the other pictures are blurry . . . maybe I can blame it on my camera phone??

We'll meet again on May 18th. Come and see us . . . bring your favorite 'fiber project'. The more the merrier . . . 

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