Knit Group

It was a lovely knit group last night. We saw the return of an old friend, Joanne and her friend Doris. Welcome back Joanne and welcome Doris.Nathalie is very close to finishing her Flower Petal Shawl from elann.com. I'll have to post a picture of it.
I was telling the ladies at knit group about this fun site I found and I have promised to post the link here. The site is TipNut and if you go under the craft section I think you will be happy to surf the links to free patterns.
Also Red Bird Knits is having a July sale.It started a few days early and make sure you check out the new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needle sets that they will be offering as soon as they become available. I am on her e-mail notification list.I have my Knit Picks which I love but I can definitely use the lace size (small) set. Woo-hoo!
Well until next time.Stay cool.

Deina's Class Socks

You saw a picture of Deina in the previous post. Deina has been a friend of mine for a good number of years. We share hobby interests such as quilting, rughooking and now knitting. Deina is a wonderful quilter and teaches at The Fabric Cupboard 22 Brandon Street, Moncton,NB,506-855-3800. Deina took my magic loop sock class in the spring of this year but was to ill to make it to the final class where we showed and shared our socks. Deina brought her socks to KIP day and the picture below are of her and her finished socks.

Good work Deina and thanks for sharing.


Wow What a Great Knit in Public Day

Saturday the 13th turned out to be very fair and the turn out for Moncton's first KIP day event that was hosted by Cricket Cove went excellent. There were prizes and surprizes! Like the owner of Cricket Cove Donna Walsh showing up. Cudos to the staff for organizing a fun event. Thanks to all who participated in the knitting of preemie hats and for your fellowship. Below are a few pictures I ended up having to take with my phone camera as my batteries were dead in my digital camera.Hope to see everyone and more at next years KIP.
