The Tuesday night knit/crochet group are a devoted and hearty lot and will brave all kinds of weather to come and visit with me. Last Tuesday, undaunted by the high heat and humidity, they came to sit, knit, crochet, drink iced tea and share their projects with the rest of the group. Among these projects were two finished objects (FOs).
Lucille finished her Imogen tee. Knit out of Quince & Co. Tern in the Bird’s Egg colorway. This was a big project for her and with a little guidance and support from the group, she is happy to report it fits perfectly!
Lois also finished a pair of socks in a really GROOVY colorway! The photo doesn’t do the purples, blues, and greens of the yarn justice. Like these socks? Been thinking of maybe making some of your own? Despite last weeks heat and humidity, we are more than halfway through the summer season. And today, July 23rd saw local temperatures just barely creep into the 70s. Summer in Maine can be tricky and fickle. Handmade socks are always squooshy and warm. But for first time sock knitters, the hardest part of making socks is getting up the courage to make the socks! Sooooo, Saco River Yarns is going to be having a Tuesday night KAN/CAN KAL (Knit-At-Night/Crochet-At-Night Knit-A-Long). A KAL is a project that the group decides to do at the same time. The benefit of a KAL/CAL is that we are all there to support one another, answer questions, share in frustrations. August 6 is our official start date. I will be posting more information about the KAL/CAL on this blog, our Facebook page, and our Ravelry group. There is no cost to join, just the cost of the materials, unless you have yarn you can use on hand.
