They're Finished!


My Opal socks are finished. Yes thanks to Sue's Tuesday night Knit In I knit up the last toe. If you recall,these were the socks that had a difficult birth...the dreaded tangling of yarn that I started with from the center of the ball. Also they are not perfectly identical, but close enough to satisfy me.

The Knit In included Patty, Sue, CarolR, Paula and me. Patty looks as though she is on the home stretch with her lovely shawl done in a green jumperweight yarn. We are looking forward to the final cast off from circular needles to truly enjoy it. Paula brought another of her cockleshell scarves...this time in a wonderful purple. She also worked on her Seawater sweater which is proving to be stunning. Carol R worked on her famous sock...the sock that employed at least 7 knitters to untangle it. Sue...that talented woman displayed her Iris cards. She even created her own sail boat pattern. I just loved her hummingbird card. Sue is incredible!!! She starts a new craft and takes off with it to produce such a lovely result.

Judy, who is now gardening in Vermont, knit with us in spirit. It appears she also spent the day dyeing and gardening and surveying her property for heifer damage :)
