The word we all use for a day like today is "Blech!" It's cold, it' s rainy, it's just blech!
Cargill Falls in Putnam is practically overflowing. You should hear the roar of the water!

Fortunately, this kind of day encourages us to give in to the urge to brew up a pot of tea and knit our beloved projects. Even better, why not pull out those unfinished objects (or UFO's as they are known by knitters) and focus on promoting them to the rank of "Finished Objects" (which we refer to as "finished objects" because "FO" sounds antagonistic!)

Here are some of the beautiful things our knitting family has created. Enjoy!

This hat was made by Thomas, one of our newest knitters. He learned how to knit around Christmas time and he finds knitting to be extremely therapeutic, especially after a long day of being a high school math teacher.The top of his lovely hat! Isn't is great?

He made this cute entrelac purse for his wife. Many customers were jealous when they saw this bag!!
Chris made this gorgeous cowl for a knitting friend she met through Ravelry. She almost felt guilty taking the picture wearing it!Here is a felted hot plate that she designed. She based her Celtic Knot pattern from the necklace her mother in law had given to her, which makes this project extra special.
This vest is Judy Holke's interpretation of a pattern she found in Interweave Crochet. Judy always impresses us with her beautiful garments. It's always very classic and classy!

Stellar work, everyone! Now that these UFO's are out of the way, you can start a new project and today is the perfect day to do just that! Happy Knitting and Crocheting to you all!

WOO HOO! I am so glad I read this blog today. I went to see pictures of Tom's work, and I found the gorgeous Chris on here too! I am so lucky to know both of these fabulous knitters.
