Hospice tree knitting

Arrow Thin Left Icon

I was surprised and delighted at the number of knitters who came out to knit for the hospice tree! We had an absolutely full house. Deborah brought the most adorable sheep sugar cookies with pink sparkles (of course). They were delicious.

My Elizabeth made a batch of her famous chocolate, chocolate chip cookies, and there were lots of other goodies as well, except, despite my hope no egg nog. Do you know that it is absolutely impossible to find egg nog in the stores before November? I had no idea. So we had mulled cider instead.

As you can see, this was a very fun day. We worked hard, but we had a good time!

We got lots of little sheep made - about a third of what I think we'll need for our 4 1/2 foot tree.

Thank you so much to all the knitters who came and helped. It was a pleasure to see you, and we really appreciate you donating your Sunday afternoon for a worthy cause. Our next Hospice knitting event is Sunday October 25th from 1:30 -4:00. Come join the fun - maybe there will be egg nog available by then!

    I wish I could have been there – hopefully at the end of the month I can! It looks like everyone had a good time and what cute little sheep! What a full house you had!

    I really enjoyed making the sheep and all the wonderful conversation. What a great day!

    Can someone who knits only dishcloths help? I have knitted a pair of mittens some time ago, and tried (not very successfully) a pair of socks. :)
