It’s been a kind of a weird week for me, so I haven’t gotten around to posting about last week’s group meeting until now. We met on the 20th, which, coincidentally, was the first day of Spring. It was a sunny, warm day to mark the occasion, too. Maybe that’s why attendance was slightly smaller than usual… folks were out and about and embracing the springtime. And we deserve it, too, after the winter we’ve been through here in DC. But, I digress.
I only snapped a few photos, because for once, I was pretty involved with my own knitting. But there are a few to share.
This month our group started a knit along for first-time sock knitters. And here is Sylvia, proudly showing off her very first sock! I so wanted to join the other sock knitters, but I don’t want to lose my current momentum with my sweater. Way to go, Sylvia! We’re so proud of you for trying something new, and for having such fabulous results! You’re a sock knitter now! I hear that sock addiction is quite unavoidable.
Rhoda brought along some yarn made from sugar cane. I’m not sure if it was this yarn or not, but whatever it was, it has to be some of the softest yarn I’ve ever had between my fingers. Perhaps someday I will add some to the stash, but I’ve been doing quite a lot of stash enhancement lately. (To be the subject of a future post, so keep your eyes out for future yarn candy photos!)
It was a great day, and, because I am a week late with this post, our next meeting is coming up THIS Saturday already. I can hardly wait!!
