After joining the Parkchester Knitting Circle I decided on another project. I was encouraged by a fellow knitter who has made many sweaters to knit one. Knitting my first sweater. I thought to myself for who? My youngest son Ismaeel. Why? So that way I can have a finished product quickly. Am I being lazy? Of course not. I am just trying to go over that hill of sweater making. I feel as though after this task is done then I can have the confidence to make another one and another and another. I really love being a part of the knitting circle. Its like a small family getting together and doing what we love. Everyone brings there projects, notions and newly bought books and patterns. Sometimes in big bags or shopping carts. I think that’s cool.
We are all going to crochet and knit an afghan for a charity. What a wonderful idea. I always wanted to be part of something like this. We start the squares this week on Thursday. I have to think about which special stitches I will use to make it looks nice.
Here is a pic of my messy knitting bag with some small projects and my Handy Book of Sweater Patterns Book. This is a book I left in New York when I went to Egypt. What was I thinking? Also I took a pic of the sweater I am making for my son. I think it’s coming along well. I am using two circular Harmony Wooden Needles to knit two pieces at the same time. My fellow knitter showed me how to do it. I am so thankful.
