What We Learned from our Knitting
Finish up Party
Margaret finally finished her grandson’s socks (for the second time (no pattern— the first time it was too tight) and Catherine finished up two
projects. Margaret mulls over the product versus process question with the help of some famous knitters:
process vs. product at Knit Purl https://www.knit-purl.com/blogs/blog/process-vs-product-knitting
Catherine’s finishes another baby sock recipe that she usually donates to Afghans for Afghans and two little cowls for a friend’s children — on of a fox and the other a teen aged ninja turtle.
