Last night I had a fun little knit night at Jitterbug Cafe in SLC. It was a fun discussion all around regarding TED Talks, Spiders, storms, new yarn types and what everyone was knitting. Knitters are interesting. I’m sure you could say that about any group, but it’s fun to be part of a group that will get together to do their thing and that thing is conducive to conversation. It’s soooooo social.
Last week I bet myself I could knit a baby sweater entirely on the train. It didn’t work out. I was short about half of the second sleeve. However, I drove on Thursday for knit night, and I definitely would have finished if I’d had those two hours. So it’s all ready to block and finish with collars and button-bands, etc. Easter weekend was busy, so should be able to get to it this weekend.
I am also working on some hats for my sis and nephew. They go watch her son/his brother play baseball, and it’s still pretty cold Oregon-wise. She sent me a pic of what she wanted, and I think I’ve come up with it. One for each. Should be in the mail shortly. My friend Jenn picked up some Cascade 220 at the thrift store and gave it to me. She’s sweet that way. Must be the old American batch, because after blocking it was positively soft. I hope they like them.
We went to K’s parents for Easter and it was a full house. Literally. It reminded me of just how fabulous Jude is. He is so friendly and interested in everyone. No one was left out ever. If someone was off on their own, Jude went over and made conversation. If he was sitting and someone needed a seat, he gave up his. It’s adorable. Now if he would just stop being the favorite of all the kids. The brat.
Chantel had fun too. Kimball, who seriously knows better, bet she couldn’t knit with two rocks. Seriously should have known better. Stylish.
