It's a Start!!!


Well, well.....I've finally rejoined the blogosphere. It's been a busy time for me since my mom's been ill. Rest assured I've been knitting and spinning all the while. Above you see some wonderful merino Ashland Bay fiber I purchased from RI Handspun a few weeks ago. The red color is not as blue as the pic shows it to be. I'm spinning is very thinly in hopes of making a shawl with it.

Last night I had a great time at Sue's Knit In. Paula arrived and worked on a textured sweater in a dark red; thankfully she is feeling better. She hurt her foot last week :(. Judy came along wearing her newest felted dark beige scarf with interesting textures. Patty came as well; she' s been working on some socks for her demonstrations at Coggshell Farm. Sue showed us a delightful sock she knitted for her dear granddaughter.

We passed quite a bit of the time exploring old patterns that Norma passed along for the taking. We had a hoot looking at the vintage 50's and 60's knitted sweaters and outfits that each magazine revealed. At times we were crying because we laughed so hard.

Hi Cindy, glad you're back blogging and hope that your mom is better. I love looking at old patterns too. The small gauge of some of those from the '30's and '40's is amazing.

I'm sorry to hear that your mom has been ill. That is extremely difficult - I hope you have also been taking care of you, too.
