I Shouldn't Really Be Here
Nope, sure shouldn't. About this time I should have been coming out of recovery after having my right knee replaced, but the operation has been postponed to sometime next week. So, with nothing planned for this afternoon, I thought I'd try to blog a bit - mostly photos. The one bright side is that I'll get Thursday & probably next Monday at knitting group.
Anyway, here are the photos although Blogger seems to be dropping them all over the place. Most of these are made with wonderful hand-wash yarns donated by a kind woman from Royal Oak, MI, so we've used them for items that our group can sell to raise money for machine wash/dry yarns to make items for charity. But how nice it was to work with these fibers.
This one is a wonderful self striping yarn, Paton's Soy Wool Stripes (SWS) that I used to advantage in knitting on the diagonal. I love the colors and the soft feel of the yarn. The hat below is a very heavy wool with a button tab.
This last one doesn't show up as well in the photo as it does in real silver & glitter. The "wild" one below is a design by one of our K4 members, Evelyn. It has a crocheted sleeve with long fringe attached. The fringe wraps around the neck, through the sleeve and hangs down. These were a big hit at the Made In The Mitten sale at the center last Saturday.
Guess that's it for a bit.. Time to get back to knitting, probably hats for a while as Rev. Patty was very happy to get these.
