Learning to knit....
Two women in our office have started learning to knit this year. They are still on garter stitch, but I think they are getting ready to learn the purl stitch. I make Marcy teach them because they both learned by throwing and I pick knit.
Well, this is pretty long and I need to post updates of the Nasturtium sock. I also have pictures of Wilma's red scarf and Paulettes Cardigan that she's knitting. Paulette and Wilma are the two newest converts in the race for knitters to take over the world.
Here is Paulettes first sweater, well 2 pieces of it. It's a garter stitch swing jacket we found at http://www.lionbrand.com/ it's listed in their free knitting patterns. There is also a pattern for those of you who crochet. The yarn is Lion Brand Homespun and changes from light sea greens to lavenders and silvers.
Here is Marcy's damaged thumb....apparently today (saturday) she got a better brace but this was the tape job her husband did. According to text that Marcy sent this morning, she can knit a little with the new brace. Please don't pass that on to her doctor who, as we all recall his words with a shudder, said to stop knitting. Men, the ones who don't knit, don't get it.
and here is my foot inside my sock. I began the decreasing for the toe. I think it looks beautiful on, even though the model is more of a brick than a foot. Thank goodness my pedicure still looks good. If you are wondering what color the nail polish is, it's OPI Root Beer Float. Quite pretty actually
Go for a walk and stroll into a yarn store, touch the yarn, watch the knitters.
See what you're missing. :) It's not that bad being one of us.
