My other new social circle is riskier because I don’t know anyone and it could get expensive. There is a knitting group that meets at The Unravelled Sheep every Saturday. I learned about it when I signed up for a knit-along. There are classes, trunk shows, and group projects there regularly, but this is the first one I’ve tried out. We are all knitting a scarf from this pattern.
The teacher of the class custom dyed yarn for this project. Then she worked through the pattern four or five times to work out the kinks and figure out how to teach it. We all worked together for about five hours last Saturday. I’ve knit mine off and on since. Here is my project so far.
I’m planning to go to the store and knit some more tomorrow morning. Part of me is. Shyness and the ache that comes from stormy weather are working against me. I’ll tell you how it goes.
Another is this piece I just started. The stitch is called a melon stitch. It is a round stitch in a square (soon to be rectangular) piece.
The knitting inspired by this week’s topic is a circular scarf made of checkerboard squares.
Mountain Meadow and it was colored with dyers' coreopsis. I have yarn of about five different shades dyed with this same plant. It will show up again in a project I have planned for later. The scarf is for sale at my shop.
