Gnarled Oak Part 2

I was in such a hurry yesterday with my post that I didn't give it a title. It was the first thing I did today.

It is very early in my world. Last night Beth went to have a sleep study done. I have been telling her to do it for a long time and she finally listened. She came through the door at 6:30 this morning. The dogs were extremely excited to see her. I was happy because she brought a tea and muffin for me.

Sarah emailed me a few pictures last night. Her Gnarled Oak is done. I love the pictures. They look like something from a magazine.

In case you don't know Sarah here is a brief history. Sarah and her mom Cathy (yes, the Cathy who helps out in the store-the one who keeps things in order) started coming to the shop 8 or so years ago-maybe longer. They then joined my Wednesday night knitting class. We hit it off and Sarah started helping out in the store. She went off to teachers college which meant less time in the store but she still came in on Saturdays and helped out with the shows.

Sarah and John got married a few years ago and John just took a job in England. It's sad for us here but Sarah is having a great time. You can follow her adventures on the blog she started. If you look on the right side of my blog it says My Blog List. Sarah is go go little red.

When Coastal Knits first came out Sarah decided that Gnarled Oak was going to be our garment for the Frolic. She picked a colour and helped Lynn with hers. I decided to join in so we would all be wearing the same thing. Sarah won't be here for the show but I hope she wears her Gnarled Oak on April 28 to show support. :)

She is coming home for Easter weekend and we hope to see her in knitting class on Wednesday night.

I did a bit of knitting last night but it is hard to knit with a 75 pound Golden Retriever named Roko in your lap. He was upset because he mom left him so I was the next best thing. The back of the Trendsetter vest is done and I am almost done the first square on the front.

Here is the second piece of my quilt.

It's amazing what you can accomplish when you get up early. A load of laundry is in-mannequin clothes. The ladies are going to be redressed for summer and I thought it would be nice if they had freshly washed clothes. Cheques have been written and I'm just finishing up mail orders.

Then its off to see Lucy at the Quilt Rack. I hope she has colours that will work. Friday we are closed for Good Friday. Church in the morning and then an afternoon by the sewing machine.

Sarah indeed looks like she should be in a magazine.
