Our Summer of Knitting
First, thanks to all who have generously donated to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Our personal connection, Kiki's brother Kent, will be back home in Indiana tomorrow. Thanks to all who purchased the Kent Pattern with the proceeds going to the Red Cross. We will leave it available indefinitely.
So how about some knitting? Here is how we ended our summer of knitting. We went to our usual spot Saturday, just to find it closed for the holiday. Too bad for our usual waitress. She will have to wait another week for these socks Kiki made for her.
We ended up at A.J.'s with many of the usuals (Sorry we couldn't reach the rest!). Amy from Amyville gave gifts to all of the Luscious Gracious clan. Check out what she gave the kids. The little items are very cool stitch markers that she makes, doughnuts and fortune cookies.
While at A.J.'s, I gave Illanna an early birthday present, because I couldn't keep my first sweater quiet any longer!
I used the Scribble technique from Debbie New's 'Unexpected Knitting' and the pattern came out of the brain I share with Kiki. It was knit in the round starting at one belled sleeve, split to knit across the back & rejoined for the other sleeve. I then picked up stitches and added a ribbed border to make it more sweater-like.
We have updated our Bound Off and On The Needles sections with our summer of knitting projects. Look at the blog history if you want to know fibers, but the galleries have all the pictures in one spot.
We also added to our 11 things about section. The girls best friend from France & honorary Luscious Gracious sister sent us her 11 things about Ippolyti Hall Hartley. Number 7 & 8 are my favorites.
Hope you all had a great holiday,
