A Few Blogs Behind

Between my daughter’s graduation and birthday (and all the happy chaos that goes with it), I’m a little behind in my blogging…

A week ago I met my Friday Stitch and Chat (s&c) at Cosi Restaurant on High Ridge Road. We had a great time! The Manager, Scott, welcomed us and said I could call ahead to reserve a table if I wanted. Fridays will now be at Cosi from 12-2!

Elizabeth finished her forever sweater. It came out great, we still don’t know if it’s going to be hers or her daughter’s. She’s started a garter stitch lengthwise scarf in Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk in red and white.

Sara plans on starting a baby blanket soon as a gift. I’m going to write a pattern for a stockinette baby blanket with ruffle to be done in a worsted weight yarn.

Robin picked out yarn at Knitting Central for a baby blanket to knit as a gift. She’s using Sirdar Snuggly yarn in a pretty blue. The pattern is from Ann Norling and is done in stockinette and reverse stockinette alternating blocks. It’s a good “next step” project to practice reading a pattern, changing stitch patterns, and incorporating a border.

Mary worked on the Jane Elliot La Baguette bag that she and I are making. She’s learning how to do short rows to make the circular shaped bottom. I love the colors she’s mixing together. I’ve got to get on the ball (of yarn – bad pun) and get to work!
