Wow, who would ever have thought I could actually write a blog for a whole year?  Not me!  that's for sure.  And how wonderful that my one year blogiversary fell on an Eastside Stitchers meet up at Crossroads Mall. 

All the regulars were there, and that was great.  We have had some flu, and well, life, making attendance a bit spotty.  Some of our friends  (SeattleAmy, BrainLady, AmiGirl,  I mean you), were not there.  But it was a fun group, as usual.

Who was there and what were they working on?

In alphabetical order...

Allifer brought her latest placemat and some yarn for me!  We are going to hook a set of these placemats together (each making 4) as a housewarming gift for my sister, K, who has bought her first house.  Allifer chose the colors and the pattern.  We wanted something fun and summery, as K lives in Texas, and she has a much longer summer than we have up here in the Pacific Northwest.

Chockelet brought a few goodies!  The first is this fab dog sweater.  It was actually knit for her by our own MsWiz.

Keeping with her tradition of bringing cool fiber tools (remember her drop spindles?)  Chockelet brought this Kumihimo Disk.  It is for making round braids.  It reminded me a bit of lanyards, but with fabric cord instead of the plastic. 

And finally, Chockelet brought the beautiful lace scarf she is knitting in Noro.

Cleothyla brought her newest Illusion piece.  She is just at the beginning so you can't really see what the illusion will be.

Shhh!  It's Draco Malfoy.

Colleen brought an almost finished, just one more skein, baby blanket.

Ellyol wore her Rainbow Scarf

And worked on a wine colored crocheted hat.

GwenS was just about finished with her beautiful beaded cowl.  Once again, I can only apologize for how horrible this photo is.  We meet at night, and without natural light I just can not do this beautiful shade of blue justice, or really capture the beads...

Jenknotsed8 has just about finished the gussets on her first pair of 2aaT Toe Up Socks!

MsWiz was knitting her "green blob"  (this is her name for this project, not mine.)  She needs to get to the good part soon,  or I think she will go crazy from all that stockinette.

No Where in the World is f1bercat again.

Thank you all for reading these f1ber memories.  Why is sharing my crafting so much fun?  I have no answers, but, writing this blog for a whole year has been so satisfying.  Thank you to my 5 followers!  Thank you everyone who pops in for the tutorials and round photos.  Thank you everyone who visits randomly.

shaping the planet one full year of blogging at a time!

Here's to a great 2nd year.
