A nurse who knits…

I taught 2 more knitting fiends

Filed under: Knitting,Life in general — yarnnut @ 3:46 pm

Two of my friends came over last Friday night. We had a great time catching up and we had yummy indian food for dinner. Afterwards, I suggested getting Cold Stone icecream and coming back to the house. As I pulled out my knitting, one of my friends said, “Teach me how to knit. I want to knit fingerless gloves.” I was shocked and surprised but pulled out some scrap yarn and my Denise needle set. I started him out on size 10s on some leftover Lorna’s Butterflies and Lamb. (leftover from my Clapotis). He learned how to cast on and do the knit stitch. He was so excited that my other friend wanted to cast on and knit. The excitement was so high we had to make a trip to Michael’s to get some needles and yarn. I would have taken them to a LYS and got them more addicted but it was 8 pm and the only place to get that yarn at that time of night was Michael’s. So… I did my duty in spreading the joy of knitting.

Here’s another doggie picture since I don’t have any knitting done.  I tried to post the full size picture but it was cut in half and you couldn’t get the full effect.   I was washing the sheets and all my “Kids” were needing a nap. Both my dogs enjoy snuggling. Awww… Sorry Kristi, no dogs wearing handknits. I’ll do that very soon though. Stay tuned for Halloween. My Wendy is going to be a ladybug!




  1. What fun, I can just imagine you all there knitting and the excitement with friends! I’ve heard of Cold Stone icecream, and it sounds great!
