Garter Country


The Garter Stitch Blanket for the in-laws is coming right along. Now that I've got the right dimensions figured out, it's just knit, knit, knit, knit -- you get the idea. Looks like I'll have enough yarn to finish the project, which I wasn't sure about at first. You can see that the two center "L" sections are done, and I'm about halfway finished with one of the two larger outside sections.

I'm not quite halfway there, but it's moving along quickly. I even got to work on it some this weekend while in Houston for an early Halloween party. I had a good time, and was reminded by one salty party attendee that there a few non-knitters out there that read this blog. Don't worry -- we'll win her over yet. Fall weekends were meant to be spent this way, traveling and visiting with friends that we don't get to see enough of.

The party was a blast with some pretty awesome costumes. As for me? Let's just say that I would have made a pretty creepy goth kid. Pray that my fingernails return to a normal color before I have to head back to work tomorrow.

    Just out of curiosity...is anyone in your knitting community severly ADHD? Would be nice to know if it is even possible for someone like me to learn before the knitting wooing begins.

    P.S. Steven makes a super cute goth boy.

  3. Here I am again, posting about Cat Bordhi in Steven's blog. Cat used to teach school and found that knitting helped her ADHD students. See http://www.catbordhi.com/documents/KnittinginSchools.pdf for more. Kimberley, we'll snag you yet...

  4. Steven, Janelle, I am guessing that a confession here that I already own needles and a beautiful skein of yarn would just fuel the evangelical fires...
