A Little Knitting and Friends


This is a Linen Stitch scarf I knit for my granddaughter Taylor Evan.  She's living in Fall River, MA. so I knew she could use it.  It's a fun knit.  I have several more colorways in the knitting bag.


Two of my 'out of town' stitching friends, Karen (Colorado) and Nicole (South Carolina), stopped by after Christmas for a stitching afternoon.  We had such a great time.  It was nice to visit and stitch the afternoon away!  


 Nicole had stopped by A Good Yarn in Sarasota and picked out this 'HOT PINK' sock yarn as a Christmas gift for me!!  How sweet was that?  I can't wait to get started. And she knit me two beautiful dishcloths.  Seems a shame to use them in the kitchen…but I do and I love them !!  Thanks Nicole


Karen gave me this lovely Shaker box.  I love boxes 'cause I've always got something to put in them !!  Thanks Karen

Thanks for stopping by!!  Hugs and Happy Stitching, Knitting, Quilting or whatever rings in your new year !!

Great gifts from friends!

The linen stitch scarf is gorgeous! The yarn you picked out for it really does work so well with the pattern.

Love that scarf, I may have to give one a go as I have had that marked in my Ravelry library. So glad you had fun with friends, you can never go wrong with A Good Yarn in Sarasota, your friend picked lovely yarn.
Hugs,

So fun to see pictures of Karen. I remember meeting her at the Shepherd's Bush retreat a few years ago! What fun to have her visit.
Your scarf turned out wonderful. I wish I could knit. I haven't gotten into that yet. I have a mountain of other projects to finish first.
I hope all is going well. Hugs to you!

Hey, Girl! Love this scarf. Going to look up that linen stitch to see if it's a possibility for me. Your hair is A LOT longer than in the photo here. It was great to meet you, and hope to see you again.
