Tuesday Mid-Michigan Knitters’ Guild

Tuesday night I went to the monthly meeting of the Mid-Michigan Knitters’ Guild in East Lansing. I tell you, that group is getting BIG!!! We had about 50 people. It was a wonderful time.

The program this month was geared toward gift knitting, and so people were asked to bring in any variation on a scarf, shawl, stole or poncho that they might have made, and talk about it a bit. We had all sorts of things I’d never imagined before, beautiful scarves in particular that were really innovative. I am not much of a scarf wearer (they aren’t big enough or warm enough for this woman who always has cold hands and feet even when wearing a hat) but I was very impressed with the variety.

Before the program starts, we always have show-and-tell time, where folks bring what they have completed since last meeting. I brought the stole I finally finished for my friend who needs a hug (still no pictures, darn it), and finally remembered to bring the three pair socks I did in series for Dawn Brocco’s Heels and Toes Gazette in the last year.

Sarah Peasley and friends made “hallowig” variations from a pattern in Knitty.com and brought them in for show and tell. Sarah had the right idea, using the squiggle yarn. I LOVE that yarn, would love any excuse to knit with it. Well, almost any, because I’m not going to knit a wig… out of that yarn or any other. But I just know the ladies had fun making theirs and wearing them!!!

And look at this prize photo of Irene wearing her finished ColorJoy Stole! She completed it in a matter of a few days (remember in the photo I took at our class just over a week ago, she had already knit about five inches on it). It looks wonderful on her, just perfect with what she was wearing. Good job, Irene!

    I just wanted you to know that we do read and think about you, too, and know this trip WILL be the trip of a lifetime for you. Enjoy all the scenery and experiences, and may you have a wonderful time.
    I’ll miss your Michigan pictures that I watch for daily so I’m not as homesick for Lansing! But I can always go to your archives, right?
    Safe journeys to you!
