We met last night to resume Wednesday Night Knitting, after a hiatus of about a month. My project list was limited to the Ghetto Mohair Wrap.It’s up to about 45 inches long, but its finish seems eons away. I will bind off when it reaches 60 inches long, then add a wide knit ruffle around the whole thing. Endless! Two skeins of Sensations Rainbow Boucle, 850+ yards each. I am behind on my sock projects and everything else. But there seems no better alternative project than mindless stockinette while watching crime dramas that have English subtitles you must keep up with or the plots will leave you in the dust. I don’t know how in the world some of you manage your magnificent obsessions of reading while at the same time knitting!
Ethel finished a beret with a star crown and a glittering star button on the brim. It’s alpaca and done with size 17 needles and a pattern she got from Tina.We miss you Tina! Hope you’re knitting pretty in NC right now!
Lois worked on a hat in deep crimson Red Heart.She expressed a bit of worry that her work with the patrons at the local assisted living center has been curbed, because many there have been sick. Come to think of it, lots of people we know have been sick.
Meanwhile, Ethel worked on some other projects.The lacy sweater is in Shine from Knit Picks. She said she’s almost finished with the Cobblestone Stitch purse and ready to felt it. Inspired by that stitch she found on Pinterest, she started working on a Cobblestone Stitch bedspread panel. While entertaining her grandchildren from “up north” who came for Easter, she did some finger-knitting, which she demonstrated for us in a very colorful superbulky yarn. Fun! Ethel also brought a few new mags with some fabulous spring ideas in both knit and crochet.
This goes out to the public with a prayer that everyone who’s sick will soon be on the mend. Amen.
