Catching Up: Knit-in, July 28

Wednesday, August 4th, 2004

Wow, I have been so busy with my lengthy travelogue that I have not shared some photos with you. Two Tuesdays ago, I went to a Mid-Michigan Knitting Guild knit in, at Irene’s house. I showed you one picture of Irene’s garden back then and will share more in my next entry. However, there was more than a garden going on that night.

For one, our Knitknacks friend, Sharon P, was there. She had finished her Soy Silk sunburst purse, and we all oohed and aahed over that appropriately. It was good to see her, as always. I swear Sarah Peasley was there, but I don’t have a picture to prove it…

And my anonymous friend was also there. I showed you a photo of her previous sock from my LynnH ColorSport yarn here previously (my In the Garden colorway). Well, she is a busy socknitter these days, because she had a sock completed in a second of my colorways, this time Cool Summer Breeze. Here is Anonymous’ foot showing off the sock ready to kitchener the toe. Stylish, don’t you think?

I got to Irene’s just as it was getting dark, and there was still quite a crowd at that point. It was good to see everyone… but my favorite time is when it gets so small that we can all pretty much be in one area and I can hear the single conversation going on in that area.

Rob and Matt, the Boyz of Threadbear Fiberarts, came in toward the end of the night. Matt and I sat on the floor knitting and talking color (he’s quite the master of color and I love talking with him). The rest of the remaining crowd sat around the dining room table. I loved it. I am grateful Irene opened her home to us all, it was a very nice time indeed.
