September 29, 2006

So I went to my first Sit & Knit last night! It was fun to sit around and chat, knit, share projects, etc. The women in the group are very funny and smart - I wonder why I was there?! :-) Of course by the time we had to leave we were in the middle of a huge downpour...Fall is here!!

I've been working on a small beaded bag that I started at last weeks Sunday in the Salon at Woolwinders. It's in its fifth iteration! Yes, I string beads and knit and rip, knit and rip. Then I lose those beads and string some new ones and knit and rip, knit and rip. This time I am not ripping! No matter what, I will finish it as it is! Actually, it's looking pretty good.

I'm also working on, what will be, a felted throw rug and I've still got my multi-directional scarf going. I'm easily bored, as you can see!

Plus - I got the "What about the other sock?" routine again last night! AGH!! He just doesn't get it, does he? So few on them do...

Day Two

I guess I'd better come up with some catchier titles.!

I dug out a bunch of completed (I can't believe it because I never finish anything!) projects. Now, if only my daughter hadn't broken my digital camera when she DIDN'T drop it at college last year you could see them, too.

There's really nothing special in the stack - a felted button bag, a cabled purse and a super-simple ribbed scarf - but the thing is, they're DONE!! My boyfriend still bugs me about the one sock I've made - that's right, ONE! Not a pair...ONE!! I keep telling him it's just a proto-type, but he doesn't seem to be buying it.

Anyway, I've been knitting away in my depression over the Giants (NY football to those of you who don't know) loss to Seattle this past Sunday. It's very theraputic!

I'm going to my first Sit and Knit this Thursday, again thanks to the prodding of Ms. Jody! She's even gotten me to take a couple of informal classes at the wonderful Sundays in the Salon at Woowinders in lovely Rockville, Maryland. My mother would be so proud!! :-)

First Day

Well, my dear new friend, Jody, talked me into doing this. I hope I end up having something to say!
