knitting group

Yesterday was our knitting group’s first Lunch & Knit event and by the end of the day, I was a new member of the The Knitting Guild Association and Secretary for the new Lincoln Chapter. I know it may seem to some that I’ve been slacking on the knitting this summer.

Exhibit A: Baby K’s blanket—still not finished!

I have to blame that on the pregnancy. Usually I sit in front of the tv in the evenings and knit up a storm, but for the past few months all I do is put my feet up on some pillows and close my eyes. I’ve even missed a few Wednesday night meetings because I’m just too tired and uncomfortable to leave the couch.

But I still love knitting. I read books and websites, I plan projects for the future, and most of all, I love the group of knitters that I have met in Lincoln. Pretty soon, the needles will start going again, and I’ll have a little guest to bring to our meetings. Until then, I’m just going to keep on with this blanket and hope I get it done before the first frost in October.

    Sorry I missed this knitting group meeting! I was totally hoping to campaign to be an officer. Drat. I’d make a really good official greeter or cheerleader. Something to think about. ;)

    Hope the baby comes soon (now that it’s perfectly safe for her to do so)!

  2. […] I’ve joined my first kal (knit along). I’m planning to do a cornhusker theme with my meathead, since I live in Nebraska and all. I purchased some red Lamb’s Pride Bulky last Saturday, but still need to get the yarn for my embellishment. Can anyone guess what that might be? Tonight is knitting group and I’m going to take this along. I’m also going to take M’s blanket, which is still not finished because I’m not really happy with it. It’s not knitting up like I imagined at all. This was supposed to be an heirloom kind of project, and I don’t think I can look at it the way it is for years to come if I am so unhappy with it. Last week I got some tough love on another blanket project I am working on for my parents. Hopefully tonight I’ll get some of the same. I’m thinking I’ll need to frog and reknit, but maybe someone can suggest a way to salvage it. […]
