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!

Hmm . . . perhaps my favorite Knitting Night of all is the one that falls right before Christmas. 

I wonder why?

Perhaps it's because of the mini cheesecakes or the Grinches made from fruit . . . or the cookies or chocolates or Christmas bread.

I'm really not sure which it is!!

But of course there was knitting involved too.

Peggy made the cutest little knitting bag ornaments for everyone. Now when I look at my tree I will think of all my knitting friends.

Here she is showing us the American Girl doll outfit she made. Because it was Peggy that made it, there is not only a reindeer sweater . . . but matching pants, mittens and ear warmers.

Then . . . just to out-do herself . . .

Yes, a knitted bike seat cover! (Well I guess if your granddaughter asks if you can make her one . . . then what is a grandmother to do?!)

Lizzie's sweater is almost done.

Just another all-around-wonderful-time with a wonderful group. A great way to have a stress-free evening.  Join us.

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

Cool Chicks Wear Sweaters

Let's face it. When the cool temperatures of winter start to come we all break out our sweaters. Pullovers, cardigans, cabled or mohair . . . we all have our favorites. 

But if you want to be a really cool-looking chick . . . well, you have to have a hand-knit sweater.

Seriously. What more can be said?

These chickens belong to my mother's physician assistant. Anyone that cares about their chickens this much . . . well, I think my mother is in great hands!

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