Tuesday was Knitting Day

On Tuesday we went to a friend's house to knit. This is something we talk about doing, but haven't done for about 3 months. It was a wonderful day. The first thing we did was spread our knitting and latest knitting book finds all over the table.

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!

A knitting day with friends. I would love that. None of my friends knit, sew, stitch or quilt. It looks so cozy and peaceful!

I love knitting time with friends. I was lucky to enjoy that with four of my girlfriends Thurs. eve. It's always such a treat.

How lucky you can knit, I can't, so the least said about it the better. It is nice to meet up with friends with a similar interest, I do, and we all take something to eat as well. I am so pleased it is March, especially as today in the south of England is a beautiful day, typical Spring sunshine. It is your summer isn't it? Whatever you are doing, have a lovely day. x
