What's Been Going On
Today was knitting "meet-up" day at the Austin Chase coffeehouse in Graham. There were six of us, 4 old-timers and 2 new ones. It was nice to meet Ann and Stacye. I'm still working on dishcloths, but am getting closer and closer to trying socks and a cardigan. The "pros" at the meet-up convinced me I could do the Mr. Green Jeans cardigan. It's a top-down style, so this afternoon I'm looking into some yarn and needles to give it a try. Everyone's so helpful and the 3 of them have finished theirs, so I'm a little more comfortable with trying this. I'm also going to be looking for a swift and ball-winder at a reasonable price (does that mean cheap? Yes!).
