Monroe Michigan

I attended the Monroe Area Machine Knitters seminar last weekend. Wow! I missed the Friday session and only attended the Saturday one.

Michael Becker gave a very thorough presentation on how to create "boiled wool" and process for a purse or other garment. The purse he demonstrated was a Clover pattern (which he carries at his web site http://store.dknits.com/default.cfm)

Eileen Montgomery presented "weaving" on your machine and reviewed various techniques. I especially loved the "carpetbag" purse she displayed. I ordered her pattern book for the mid-gauge pillows available at her web site http://www.eileenmontgomery.com/.

I wish I had been able to attend both days. It was good to see some of the knitters from GRAMKC that I had not seen for many months.

Not knitting

I want to knit, but I have this feeling I am obligated to finish the socks I started when Dad was in the hospital, and it's a lace pattern, and I don't remember it, and I don't want to start something new before I finish them.

Or maybe I should just hide them and start something new anyway!
