Summer loving knitting! Yes, we do!

Ethel is thinking of knitting this cool sock from Interweave Knit


Meanwhile, she also thought about these:



baby yarn

bamboo, cotton and acrylic yarn

blue knitted thing

and she worked a little more on this project




















Lois made lots of progress on her afghan.

I worked on the same project.

more squares finished

But it’s not boring! The blocks go fast, and I can’t wait to start on another beautiful color of Rowan felted tweed.

Wednesday Night Knitting was a fun oasis in the middle of a strenuous week!
Tina came with marvelous treasures: shea butter and olive oil homemade felted soap-and-washcloth-in-one! She had Pumpkin Pie and Rosemary Mint flavors. Check out the Verdae website that was referenced on the tags. The felted covering was really more like wrapped roving rather than a knitted, then felted, cloth.

Felted soaps

Tina also brought some great project ideas: a sushi scarf from Rostitchery and a pattern for a cabled hat on the Knifty Knitter loom (I recently bought a set of them at a great bargain price, thanks to Ethel’s coupon boost!) Thank you! Tina started on a new baby hat, with the small round knifty knitter, using a worsted weight in pure white for the ribbed brim and then adding some pink eyelash yarn for the top.

Tina also brought to our attention a new quilting shop in the Oaks Mall that is worth checking out!

The loomed and felted trivet

She brought the finished product of her loomed I-cord hot pad. It felted very tightly but maintained the stitch patterns more than the needle-knitted I-cord trivet she did previously (see pics of both the trivets in-process in prior blog posts here).

Trish and acrylic wash cloth

Trisha brought a dish/wash cloth she’s been working on in a green variegated acrylic yarn. It’s got a garter stitch border and a ribbed pattern of seed stitch with a stockinette stripe. Beautiful!

Ethel and future sweater in process

Ethel began working on a boy’s sweater with some beautiful bulky yarn from Tuesday Morning. When she saw what a mess I had made with the linen/cotton hank I’d gotten from there, she abandoned the sweater and took over my “OCD Work” and by the end of the evening, presented me with this beautiful ball.

Lois with white shell pattern

Lois decided she was tired of working on hats for the moment, and got started on a beautiful white shell. However, by the end of the session, she was back to working on a hat. She is the hatmaker!
Debbie didn’t want me to take a picture of the sock she was working on–IN REVERSE! And Beth didn’t knit, but told us some great aviation stories and about some of the many places she’s been jetting around to lately.

Chamomile Sugar 'N Cream cloth

I finished the dish cloth I’d been working on, in Chamomile-scented Sugar “N Cream cotton. I really liked the smell of it, but I got distracted crocheting the ends, as you can see by the protruding edge! I got a chance to run to the Yarn Basket in Winter Haven, and got some more of the Rozetti Cocoon to finish my scarf.

Pink Camo purse body

I worked on the Pink Camo (a Hobby Lobby yarn) purse body–a soft, fluffy mohair-like but acrylic yarn, purse body–what a joy of mindless stockinette that goes fast in size 19 needles. Next time—report on the FL Fiber In!
