Knitting Stuff - The Marley

The Monday Night Knitting group continued to meet in Homestead. Walt continues to work on his knitting Proficiency. He is almost done with that. It awesome to give out a knitting proficiency. 
This is Apprentice Brimage working on the Marley. The Marley is a long scarf project that got put on the back burner for building our set and training a whole bunch of new clowns. On the up side of having a bunch of new clowns we should be able to work on the Marley some.
Sergeant Thurman is working on the Marley over the edge of our stair case. It is nice being somewhere that has a staircase. It makes this kind of odd knitting maneuver easier.  
Also on the clowning front we had some promotions in the last week. Apprentices Thurman and Stewart are now Junior Clowns. We also have a new Cadet, Cadet Gable. She is thrilled, really she is. 
Also promoted was Walt. This is the first time that we have trained a Standard Clown from the ground up in the Brigade. As a matter of fact my wife is a Standard Clown. She has been clowning for years and already knew a bunch of stuff when she joined.  This is special time for someone like me. It is not every day that some gets to these loft heights in clowning. It makes me proud to be a part of his training. He is keeping the old ways going. 
Well I have to go the cat is having kittens. Be safe out there and keep your stick on the ice.
