It’s Been a Year!

It just now occurred to me that it’s now been a year since our very first Bowie Borders knit group meeting. A whole year! We’ve grown a lot and are going strong. I am so happy to have some time with my knitterly peeps once in a while, and am so grateful to all the ladies that have helped make the group a success.

I’ve been remiss in posting the photos from last Saturday’s meeting. So, at long last, here is this month’s gallery:

Trish 3 is a newcomer, and we were so glad to meet her! She was working on a lovely vintage pattern for a lacy top that made me want to DROOL!

Sue (I am SO sorry if I messed up your name!) is making beautiful crocheted squares in different sizes for an afghan.

And Wanda? I’m sorry I can’t remember what you’re working on in this photo but I’m so glad to see such a big smile on your face at your first group meeting! I hope this means you’ll be back again!

Not pictured were Melodye and Carla, who somehow managed to sneak away before I got the camera out. Melodye showed us her completed Cobblestone Pullover, which was gor-GEOUS!

I guess I wasn’t too quick with the camera because I was working on casting on for my first sweater:

I’ve already encountered knots in my yarn and I’m barely past the first buttonhole. I had to cut the yarn and rejoin already. I hope this isn’t a bad sign of what’s ahead… I’ve had my fill of knotty yarn for awhile.

Next group meeting is April 4! Hope to see everyone there.

    I still wish I could join your group, but that would involve a cross-country flight every week. I’ll just have to find a group here. I am going to start a February Lady too, soon! I just have to figure out what yarn to use, and I don’t like the sleeves, so I’ll probably have to put some thought into the redesign of the them.
