Lansing Knitters?

I’ve been thinking… I need a new Knit Group. Not that my old one isn’t near and dear to my heart, of course (and I do miss you all horribly)… but um, yeah.

So I’m in search of Lansing Area Knit Groups. What days and or nights do people knit around town? If possible, give me the when, the where, the who, and whatever else you think I should know. 🙂 And well, just in case it’s not obvious, non ThreadBear groups please.

Or… anyone want to start a new group? We could pick a night, overtake a coffee shop and just get knitty with it. 🙂

FO: Twilight Tube Socks

I’ve done so much knitting this week that my hands hurt and I can’t knit tonight. 😦 I did a round on my latest socks while at dinner tonight and it was like torture to my poor hands.

But… I do have a finished object to show for the pain! 🙂

Name: Twilight Tube Socks
Made for: Shawna
Pattern: I used the toe from Lynn H’s Toe Up Socks pattern and then just winged the rest…
Yarn: Collinette Jitterbug… Summer Berries (I think)
Needles: US 3 dpns
Verdict: Loved doing a tube sock! The yarn is lovely to work with and the colors a beautiful but I don’t like the way the color pools. The recipient loved them though.
Why the name? The bulk of the socks were knitted while I listened to the book Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. Great book, btw.


In other news, I’m serving as Foster Mama to my grandpa’s cat, Bo. He’s sick and has had to have daily meds and stuff. Since Gramps is 93 and wouldn’t even know how to begin giving a cat meds, Bo has been with me for the last week and a half. We’re not sure what’s going to happen now though because it turns out that the lump he’s got on his shoulder is a sarcoma and needs to be removed along with his leg. But that’ll be a $1,000 surgery which of course I can’t afford nor can my mom or my grandpa. Anyone know of a vet in Michigan who does pro-bono work? 😦 I mean look at this face…


Knitterpalooza tomorrow… I won’t be there unfortunately but I hope everyone has fun!
