Boston Knit out
Rather it seemed more interesting to go some place with lots of knitters I didn't know. In the end, I did meet up with people from the kitting group I meet with in Watertown. It was nice and we ended up going out for an early supper and then going to a yarn shop to touch more yarn. I decided t participate in a contest. Mostly because they were giving away the yarn and hook. So I am not the fasted crocheter. I think I got tripped up over how to do a double as I haven't crocheted in a long time and I didn't know if the double I knew was the same as an American double (vs a Britich double). Didn't help that I also did 11 in my first row instead of 10. In the end, I had fun and that is what counted. I also got some free yarn. There was some eyelash yarn, it is okay but since the cat seems to really like it I will try to make something out of it for him. I also got ribbon yarn that I have no clue what I can use it for. I also got a nice hand dyed cotton yarn that will likely be turned into dishcloths. The cotton came with a pattern for turning it into a sausage. What on earth are designers on when they come up with some of the strange patterns I've seen. I have always wondered if people really make some of the strange things that I see either online or in knitting magazines. They just do not seem like they are based in this time or place. Or any time or place for that matter.
