Tuesday is Knitting Day


The Wall of Cascade 220 at Make One

Every Tuesday an assorted group meets at a LYS  (local yarn store) and knits.

First I pick up Vi, then we go to lunch, because Vi likes to go out to lunch.  Thus fortified, we head over to whichever yarn store we’re meeting at this Tuesday.   I started calling it the Tuesday Roving Knitters, because we went to different yarns stores but it was always on a Tuesday.

This is Melissa, the owner of Make One, which is where we went this week.  She’s one of the worlds truly great people.

Theressa finished up this sweater today, something of her own devising.  She knits like that, no patterns, just makes it up as she goes and it turns out beautifully.   Me?  Not so much.  Sometimes I want to hate those people, but they’re too nice to hate, so I can’t.

Here’s Gretchen, one of the founding members of the Tuesday group.  She took the color stranding class with me at Make One where we made the Selbu Modern and is starting her second one.  (I’m on my third, did I mention I am sort of addicted?)

In the back is Eleanor, who was also in the color stranding class, but she made a different hat,  which is true to her nature.  This is what she said about signing up for the class….”I want to make that, only with worsted weight yarn, on these other needles,  with this pattern instead!”   So she did.

In the front is Hannah, who rejoined us after a few years away from knitting.  Of course we welcomed her back with knitting in our arms.  Knitters are good like that.  Always willing to have a new sheep in the flock.
