A Knitting Day!

Today was one of those knitting days that i just love! Since i still don't have a clinical placement, i was able to sleep in this morning. After a shower and some breakfast i headed out to the Downtown Nashville Library for the monthly knitting group with Ann Shayne of the Mason Dixon Knitting book and blog! It is always lots of fun to not only knit with Ann but to see what everyone else in the group is working on. There is always lot of variety from scarves and dishcloths to sweaters and socks! so neat!

Since i just finished that shawl i feel the need for some smaller projects...immediate gratification. i have learned that at the knitting group i can't work on anything that requires my attention since i tend to talk and socialize while there. One of the ladies at church had picked up some funky yarn during a walmart clearance that i thought would make a neat scarf so i gave it a go! i casted on 16 stitches and knitted the first row then did a drop stitch. It was just the quick project that i was in need of! I added multi colored ribbon to the fringe for a little kick. It turned out suprisingly well! Started and finished in one day! i love that!

Hi LIndsey, what a great idea, can't wait to see what you are knitting, thinking and enjoying!
I love the scarf, when you drop do you mean knit, drop, knit, drop? You can see I am basic here.
