One of the members of my knitting group has offered to teach me to crochet. Specifically, to crochet Granny Squares, as I'd like to make an afghan that is one huge square. But then, today on facebook, one of my friends posted this photo:
Isn't that pretty? If I get the hang of the Granny Square thing, I just may have to make one of these, too.
The group met last night, and I passed out donated worsted to everyone, asking them to make 6" squares that we could put together for an afghan or lap blanket. And it was decided that, at our next meeting, everyone will cast on socks. I was flabbergasted to find out that hardly any of them have ever made socks before. My experience with knitters has always been that socks are a regular go-to project. Everyone but me will be knitting them in the round, unless I brush the rust off my two circulars skills.
The people are at Mama and Daddy's house, preparing for the estate sale. It still looks like it's going to be the first weekend in August. I suppose it's very telling that the house has scarcely been on my mind at all since I left last time. Everything I could do, I had done, I guess. No need to worry. Now, once the sale is over, we'll see where my thoughts go. . .
