How fun! I saw a blurb about a knitting group that meets weekly at a church right near my house. So I called the contact person listed.
Me: “I don’t knit (yet), can I bring my crochet instead?”
Me: “I’m still unpacking and can’t find my crochet (yet), can I bring some mending instead?”
So I packed up our holey shirts and buttonless pants and, while looking for thread, managed to find my roomy red bag of crochet WIPs too.
What a friendly group of women! I was good and did the mending first. But then I dug into the bag to see what was in there.
The purple one just had loose ends to weave in. It is DONE now!
By the way, I found the pattern—minus the border—on Ravelry (Check Stitch Scarf), but it’s also available here. I loved the little slits so the scarf doesn’t have to be so long yet will still fit snugly around a little one’s neck.
And the aqua one is at the same stage as the pink one now, just needs a border so it matches the hats better.
I hope we have a few more weeks of “Knitting” meetings before the weather really gets cold so I have time to finish them up for my girls.
*The veteran group members did mention it’s maybe time to change the name of the group – I was not the only non-knitter there. So for now, it’s the “Knitting and More” group… : )
