The Life & Whimsies of Knitty Lou

Miss JEnny was kind enough to come over and help me pack. It’s hard to do, but a little easier with the help of friends.

This is our entire usual group of friends at Knit Nite, except Judy 😦 We missed her in the picture.

So this was actually the night before New Year’s Eve (the 30th) We had to celebrate early because it is also my dad’s birthday but he was going to be out of town on the 31st. So we went out the night before to Rock Rest Lodge in Golden, CO to see a few of our friend’s play.

It was a super fun night, but the next morning was rough 😦 Oh well, it was totally worth it 🙂

I just got home from my second knitting class in which we covered ribbing, changing colors, reverse stockinette, and binding off. The students even have swatches that we will use next week to learn about hand washing and blocking. Next class, we will learn how to increase, decrease, and seam pieces together. This 3 class series will teach them everything they will need to know to knit the hat and scarf set by knit picks. Up to this point, they now know everything they need to finish their scarf. I am so proud. They are all doing so much better than I did in the beginning. They are just naturals 🙂 I got some pics like I promised this time and permission to post them. Following the pics will be a few links that I told the class about for their easy referencing, but anyone will probably benefit by exploring them so feel free to check them out!
