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

It seems like just last month when the Monday Night group met . . . but suddenly it's September . . . and back to school . . . and another night of knitting!

Linda is making this scarf with a funky edge in a shade of chartreuse that I am coveting. She found the pattern on Ravelry . . . it would be nice if I could remember the name of the pattern . . . but of course I can't!!

To block it you insert a dowel in the loops and then they stay flat. 

I can't wait to see it done.

Peggy is making hats for her grandchildren  . . .

. . . and she made a cute Christmas stocking for a 3 month old. (She thought about putting a candy cane in the mitten . . . the group voted and thought a little single serving bottle of wine for the mother would be better!)

Mary was busy too. Cute sweaters with matching bonnets.

We had new faces . . . which is always fun. 

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

Plodding Along

I've been s l o w l y knitting away and working up my triangles for my Counterpane Masterpiece. The hot and humid days of August made it rough to knit with wool . . . (think sweaty hands and stitches sticking to the needles and maybe a little swearing and a lot of wishing for cool September mornings.)

Now that September is here, I am trying to knit faster and get them done! Not to mention that I just may . . . just may . . . be getting sick of making triangles and sewing them together!

So far I have 7 squares that are blocked, 1 not blocked and enough triangles for 2 squares. So about 38 more triangles and I can start sewing the squares together. That will leave the sleeves and the neck.

I think I better buckle down and get knitting . . . especially if I want to wear it on one of the cool fall days!!

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