What an amazingly beautiful Fall day. The air is crisp and clear, and the trees are beginning to turn their Fall colors. Panera's in Redmond was very busy, I think there must have been some hiking clubs stopping in for breakfast before enjoying the chance to hike the Cascades before it is too wet and cold. The group room was empty, though, and we were able to snag it for our Sunday, Yarn Church, Eastside Stitchers meet up.
Rib-A-Roni hat by Jane Tanner. This is becoming her go-to hat pattern.
VanesaPolo brought three of the "Be Seen Hat" by Steven Be that the Eastside Knitters Guild is making for the Fire Quilts for the Knit and Stitch Fire Survivors of Okanogan County effort. I know that name is a mouthful. Basically, this is an effort to provide the people effected by the massive fires in Washington State with quilts and warm winter hats. Steven Be has donated a pattern, and the group is looking for yarn donations. From what I understand, they are hoping to gather 1000 quilts and hats to give out. Members of our Guild are stepping up to this challenge to make 1 - 4 hats by the end of October. BlueBerryMary has also finished 3 hats already!
