WWKIP Day 2016

The knitting group which I used to belong to and attended regularly while  I was doing temp work meets on Tuesday mornings, so when I started my permanent job in July 2014, I was no longer able to go to the meetings. Last year they had their WWKIP Day on a weekday and I missed out, but this year it was held on Saturday, so I decided to go along and catch up with them.

The meeting was held in a local library and many of the regular members of the group were there, busily knitting scarves and hats for the Auckland City Mission, a charity which looks after homeless people. Given that I hadn't been to any meetings for so long, I just took along my current WIP, an Irish Hiking Scarf neck warmer.

I spent an enjoyable couple of hours chatting and knitting and then went to have some lunch before heading for home.

Grey Irish Hiking Cowl

I had some yarn left after completing my Mr Greenjeans cardigan, so I made another Irish Hiking Cowl. The Irish Hiking Scarf pattern is one of my all time favourite knitting patterns, so I have used it to make several scarves, as well as a couple of Irish Hiking neck warmers, which are really snug and cosy on cold winter's days.

FO: Mr Greenjeans 2

At last I have finished my cardigan! Last weekend I washed and blocked it and this morning I took this photo.
