I spent some time with my wonderful knitting group this evening. It has grown and changed (all for the better) since I've been a member. Meeting up with these fun ladies is always a highlight of my week. Tonight, I mentioned that I didn't have a post planned for today so Mary kindly let me take some pictures of the group for the blog.
I'm sure all knitters say this but I think my knitting group is the best.
And finally, I have a tiny finished project that I made at the end of August. My friend Deb was having a not-so-ideal time as a first-year teacher so I thought what better gift to give a teacher than an apple (and knitted, no less)? I got the idea from Alana (she always has great ideas) and whipped this cutie up with some DK weight Noro Maiko.
I omitted the finger hole and instead of adding pellets to weigh it down (those puppies are $8 a bag and I only needed about an ounce!) I added about thirty cents worth of pennies and fiber fill to create a fun little paper weight.
