Monday Night Knitting Group

The only thing better than a beautiful summer night is a beautiful summer night spent with the Monday Night Knitting Group. What talent!!

Joan's scarf is coming along nicely . . . a great project to try new stitches on.

A beautiful afghan that will keep a lucky recipient warm this winter.

Marguerite's scarf that is made to be reversible!!


A beautiful cowl . . . 

Peg was busy all winter in Florida making preemie hats . . . two sizes even!!

And even though it's June . . . the perfect baby cardigan . . . a Santa sweater!!

Can you believe the talent? (And everyone is nice too!!)

Come join us some Monday night!!

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

From the Library's Shelves

My mother always told me "Good things come to those who wait". Well, she was right. (Again she was right, she also told me not to snap my gum, keep good posture, and always wear clean underwear. The last piece of advice was the nurse in her talking.) 

Ever since the Outlander series started on the Starz channel, I've been patiently waiting for the pattern book to come out with all of the gorgeous knitted items that have been shown.  I managed a replica of Claire's cowl on my own, but for the boot cuffs, the hand warmers and the shawls . . . well I confess . . . I wanted a pattern.

Luckily Interweave knits has come to the rescue and published Highland Knits, Knitwear Inspired by the Outlander Series

Come to the library and check it out. I think you'll like it. We're talking chunky or bulky yarn for a lot of the projects . . . although I fell in love with the Falling Leaves Boot Cuffs and they call for worsted weight. But still, lots of quick knitting! 

I do see the contradiction here . . .
my mother telling me to learn to be 
patient . . . I try . . . but then get excited over a pattern book of projects that will knit up quickly. . . At least I don't snap my gum anymore!! 

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