Crafting has been a bit slow the past few days as I've battled a nasty head cold. Feeling a bit better today so I worked on a scarf I'm knitting. I hadn't knitted much of anything in recent years till being invited to a neighbor's knitting club meeting a week ago. There were ten of us ladies altogether and I must say I had a blast. My neighbor, Pamela, has a lovely Victorian home and served us Scottish scones and tea during the three hours we ladies sat knitting and visiting. I admired everyone's projects and wished my skills could compete. One lady wore a beautiful pink sweater she'd made from fuzzy pink yarn. Pamela showed me beaded wrist warmers and ladies socks done in a lace like pattern that had me drooling. She also repaired a long shawl she'd made her sister some fifteen years earlier. Fingers flew deftly on the various projects while I slowly cast on stitches to make a scarf on large needles only to rip it all up once I got home realizing I had more of an afghan going than a scarf. But once home I decided to march on and found some nice size 6 needles and cast fewer stitches and am brushing up my knitting and purling skills in hopes of one day turning out a wearable piece of clothing. I won't say what day (or year) that might happen but I'll let you know. Have a great weekend everyone!
