Hitty Jean is Lonely

Hitty Jean was checking in with her friends the Quimper Hittys earlier this Summer. What they were up to – Hitty Rose in particular – was so inspiring that Hitty Jean has spent the better part of August doing the exact same thing. Knitting the Lonely Tree shawl over and over (and over) again. What a beautiful shawl it makes! Here are Hitty Jean’s results:

While she is pleased as punch with all her shawls, Hitty Jean does wish she had pulled her eyes away from the yarn basket for just a minute. For, over on Hittys Knittys, all her friends were inspired and knitting the same shawls! Silly Hitty Jean did look for company from time-to-time. But Beatrix Mouse doesn’t talk much:

So, Hitty Jean just kept on knitting. Alone. All month. Sometimes, she daydreamed that her friends were knitting with her:

They were! How did she find out? Well, Hitty Delphie finally told Hitty Jean about all the excitement over at Hittys Knittys. What Fun!
Hitty Jean wants to have fun too!! With other Hittys, that is….sooooo….there are a couple extra Lonely Tree shawls here, all blocked and ready for a Hitty to wear. Just leave us a comment and in a couple days we will draw two random names from the list. Autumn is fast approaching!

P.S.-all credit for the shawl, the pattern for the shawl and other fun stuff can be found by clicking on the links in this post. Hittys Knittys is a Yahoo group of kindred spirits who enjoy the needle arts AND Hitty.

Hitty Jean Wonders…

Why is reading immensely more enjoyable than tidying?

Bécassine hollers up the stairs: “That room isn’t going to clean itself!!!”
