Mother’s Day Stitching…

May 11, 2009

Many members must have been out enjoy the high teens temperatures and puttering in their gardens. Some were undoubtedly buried under stacks of precariously placed literature. Some must have been brunching and lunching with their families in celebration of this day.

I, and a few others, chose to take advantage of the rare moments to ourselves and stitch away the afternoon. Jan, working on her Fisherman’s Stitch sweater, noted that she is suffering the effects of the black hole of knitting and is unsure as to whether she’ll ever finish this one. Melissa, brought along her version of Komet (that is destined for the frog pond) and languished over the fact that even though she’s turning the heel, the final result is a bit tight and she’ll start anew with a larger needle size.

This yarn is spun with treated silver thread throughout. It is from Dream Weaver. The name and other info bits escape my brain for the moment so please surf on over to Melissa‘s home on the web for more information.

Shakthi came with socks in tow. She’s still working on her KAL from Sock Innovations. Even though she feels a little behind the group, her work is fabulous!

Yes, you guessed it…I once again forgot the digital camera at home. So Komet is via the cell phone.

In other news: I have made it through the body (black hole of knitting) of Decimal and am well into sleeve #1. It is turning out beautifully.

Jeanette, has been knitting this week too. She’s suffering a version of the flu and did not attend on Sunday, but she did finish her sweater in the Moda Dea chunky wool/acrylic blended yarn. It is beautiful! (Pics to follow).

All in all it was a great weekend and a good Mother’s Day spent with friends and stitchers (in this case, they are one in the same). I now patiently await the arrival of my lace making supplies.

    I wish I could have been there this week. It was so slow at work. It probably would have been better if we could have closed the store. On the plus side I finished the first harry potter scarf. See you next week. Hopefully more people will show up even though it’s the long weekend.
