Long Time, No Blog!

Yes, it has been quite some time since I wrote my last blog but I assure you that wasn't my intention.

As always, I tend to get busy with everything else and my blog seems to get placed on the back burner. I think I need to be more disciplined and set aside a scheduled time to work on my blog! Sounds like a good plan, doesn't it?

On another subject, I thought I would share a picture of my great niece, Hailey, wearing a sweater I had knit for her over a year ago. She has finally grown into it and I think she looks fabulous!

My classes at StevenBe's have been going great. Beginning in November, I'll be teaching The Cowboy Cowl and Thrum Mittens.

My private classes continue and I'm both proud and amazed at the many things my students create. It is especially satisfying since I taught the majority of them to knit. It wasn't very long ago that they were struggling just to make a purl stitch and now they're creating beautiful works of art. Everything from vests, sweaters, Christmas stockings and blankets have graced their needles and I would like to share some of them now.

Barb's vest and Diane's sweater were both made out of Malabrigo Rios.

Here are some photos of Anna and Gail's masterpieces.

No, Anna didn't goof up on her gauge swatch, she made this sweater for her dad.

Gail is sporting her StevenBe creation.

My Monday night group will not be out done......Kathy made this beautiful shawl and baby sweater and Patty continues to work on her StevenBe Ponchini.

Diane is our wrister knitter as well as baby hats for her grandkids. Beth on the other hand loves to knit hats, wristers and baby items for her friends.

My next blog will include more pictures from my many students.

Wishing you all great success with your knitting adventures as I will no doubt, continue with mine!
