I guess knitting day is just an excuse to catch up with each other, but I really enjoy all the knity goodness I learn too. I watched my friend "magic loop" a jumper she is knitting in the round. (Very cool. Seams are the worst and with magic loop you can avoid quite a few of them!) We all bring food for lunch. My friend made little quiches, I made soup and Mrs 23 (Picklesticks) made sticky date pudding. Yum!
None of the boys knitted. (Sometimes they do) They were too busy playing. Miss 11 embarked on her first ever knitting from a pattern. She is making some booties for her nephew. This is a big step. She was quite overwhelmed by the knitting language, but is persevering.
I am still working on the rug I'm knitting. I hit the halfway mark yesterday so it's going well.
I'm having trouble believing that it is March already. This year seems to be flying by. The kids are looking forward to easter, but I can't seem to get my head around it!
