WHAT I DID DURING SUMMER VACATION...


My friend, Susan, has been a faithful follower of my blog, despite being a nonknitter. Admittedly, I've been really lax in updating my so-called knitting life. It's definitely time to correct this!

So, here is a mostly pictural overview of the past summer.




a departing gift



Hubby keeps one of several pairs of readers in MY purse! Self cleaning.




A toy for a baby





My version of a Sarah London crocheted pillow





I taught a summer lace knitting class


knitting for charity

crocheted a birthday gift


a just " because you're sweet" gift


poolside knitting and inpirational reading-courtesy of the public library!




A weekly knit-in at my house


Kringle passed away peacefully a few days after this photo was taken. He was very frail and had been loved by us every day of his sixteen years

My friend is knitting another sweater.

Hello Linda,
Thank you so much for your comments on my blog :)
About my granny stripes, I gifted it to a friend and all I can remember is that I made it with Stylecraft special DK and a 3,5mm crochet hook...so sorry I couldn't help you more:(
Have a good evening,
Angie
