Knit friends inspire me




There is something about knitting in our alone moments that is wonderful.
AND
THere is something about getting together with other knit friends that is equally
as wonderful.

Yesterday I met up with Kathy, Carol and Joany. Joany is nearly twice our age, (sorry to tell Joany) and she amazes us every time we knit together. Yesterday Carol and JOan were knitting their Feather and Fan Stoles in St. Charles Rittrato.
It was like I had an itch that couldn't be scratched. Halt all the current plans, I have to go get that yarn and join them. Kathy has already finished hers.

Kathy is knitting a train scarf. She calls it a train scarf because she knits it on the train on the way home from her job. I love the colors. Kathy also has me convinced I cannot live, simply cannot continue to live, without some Sympbhony needles.

I have to go now, and buy that yarn. After all, it is nearly a week into the New Year......

I WOULD LOVE YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT>

My knitting group meets every Tuesday night, and it is so much fun to visit, to laugh, and to show what we are knitting. The group has a wide age-range, but we are fast friends. I LOVE my knitting pals.

Feather and Fan is such a great pattern to come back to again and again . . .

Knitting with friends is always fun.

Looks like a fun time and the feather and fan shawls are gorgeous! I don't know about Symphony needles but I love my Signature needles! So I looked up the Symphony needles and now know why--I don't knit with wood needles. Don't know why!!

Knitting friends are the best friends -- well, at least that is what I think. :-)

Don't go looking for "Symphony," hon--I was using Signatures yesterday. Symphonies are wooden. . . .Kathy C.

I was only able to knit with a bunch of other knitters one time. And even that was kind of hard because I needed help in learning how to knit some socks, but since I had nothing with me, I didn't get much help.


But maybe one day, I will get a chance to have myself and a bunch of other knitters together, and have some fun. Looks like a great experience.
