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!

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.


  1. I don't know whether this feedback is helpful or not, but those squares are gorgeous. I'm sorry I won't get to see this in the flesh (fiber?) Monday night!

  2. Missed you Monday night - but at the rate I'm going . . . you'll have plenty of chances to see them!
