The large open area was filled with clusters of knitters and spinners, what a wonderful group of ladies; we were very glad to be part of their venture today.

I am moving right along on my Philomena Cardigan-it is a wonderful knit.......I got 4" done while listening to a book on my Zen in the waiting room at the doctors. The good news is that Bill will not need surgery on his feet but will need some orthotics for his arches-whether or not our insurance will foot the bill! (Sorry, I couldn't resist the double pun!)

And I do mean nowhere!
converting this trailer into her shop (she lives across the street) but both Mom and I found what we were after so it was worth the drive! We were pretty glad to get back to paved, familiar roads I will admit!
I finished my little cardigan in just a week! It still needs its buttons but it is a pattern I will make again with a different colored yarn! I think a nice light cotton/linen blend will work up just right!

Mom and I each wove a basket today for our project. We channeled our long-ago Indian ancestor and thoroughly enjoyed our weaving time. This was a kit for a pair of stacking baskets but we are each going to keep our own to remember this day!

Mom and I made some stitch markers this morning-
in our favorite colors! Very satisfying little project!
This one is Mom's and she ran out of yarn. She can't decide if she will finish it or rip it out.
And closed in the last of the porch ceiling where it had been removed for other projects.
