Will miss them…

Two of our favorite DKG members have died. Elllie Gaines and Mary Hal Davis. Ellie and Mary Hal were at every DKG Retreat that I went to. Both of them have been an inspiration to me as a knitter. Ellie knitted a little sweater and gave me the pattern. Mary Hal taught me how to knit a flower and I went crazy making my own version. Mary Hal always went last at Show and Tell because she always was quite comical. The first time I saw Mary Hal do Show and Tell she had knitted costumes for her husband and herself. They were Adam and Eve costumes, fig leaf and all. Mary Hal could always make us laugh. I will miss Ellie because she was always at our monthly meeting and she was always smartly dressed and quite pleasant. Ellie viewing is tomorrow. Please check the obituaries for place and time.

One thought on “Will miss them…”

  1. Several of us visited Mary Hal in KY. I remember her house as full of idiosyncratic collections which made walking around in it as fascinating as she was herself. Her love of linen stitch inspired me to use it for quite a few projects. I think of her when I see these items and will always do so when I use that stitch in the future.
