Last night I went to hang with the Fiber Gang at a local coffee shop. Yo! It didn’t matter that some of us are knitters and some of us are crocheters, and some of us stitch both ways. We even had a rare thing – a spinner – among us! Ya’ll, it was a beautiful thing. Pretty yarns everywhere, all being knitted, purled, seed stitched, single, double and even triple crocheted! I mean, if the fiber community can get along, why can’t everyone!? I felt really at peace with my cotton last night. It was inspiring. Brought a tear to my eye. There was pattern sharing and technique sharing too!

The most exciting part was when I realized I mis-read my pattern. I thought the skirt of my dress was never going to end…but then I re-read the pattern and noted that I needed to knit 8.75 inches, not 19 inches – it’s 19 cm for the small dress. I’m making the medium and using US customary units of measurement, not the metric measurements. Helps if you pay attention! So I’m half done with the back side of this cute little dress. I’m ready to split the back side of the skirt to make the back opening. Isn’t this just sweet? Notice the picot neckline. Simple, but precious.

  4. I’m always so impressed with people who can do things like knit and crochet. That is one ability I just don’t have.

  5. Wow, that’s so cool! I so want to join a knitting group once I get resettled in the city. I’ve been knitting a baby blanket for my nephew but learned just before flying here that I had made the horrible mistake of KNOTTING my threads together instead of weaving them and knitting them (when I came to the end of a ball of yarn). How was I supposed to know that????? Love the rap.
