Sheep and Shoes at Eastside Stitchers

Team Crossroads, the official team of the Game which shall not be named,/the game formerly known as the Ravelympics/ the Ravelenic Games, met tonight for our usual Stitch n Bitch at Crossroads Mall in Bellevue, WA.

 We discussed an Opening Ceremonies Party, and threw fiber into the pot for prizes for members who finish their Ravelenic Games challenges.

We had a lively discussion about sheep, not the kind on a farm, but "lawn mower sheep,"  you know... where people own a few acres and don't want to mow, so buy 1 or 2 sheep to keep the lawn neat.  And shoes.  Basically we discussed how American women like to wear comfortable shoes while walking, and how shoe styles from the '80's were pretty ugly.

But what really matters is, Who was there?  and What were they stitching?

Jan was the first to arrive.  She brought her cotton washcloth.  I took a horrible photo of it last week, and

I took another bad photo this week!.. I think it's because I don't like to use my flash, but at night, indoors, well, this is what you get.

Hrvdmnky was designing a new shawlette.  She was using yarn dyed by Tri'coterie Yarns.  The colors are to celebrate the Year of the Dragon, and are in dragon colors.  This month's color is for Daenerys Targaryen, from the Game of Thrones books.

Chockelet worked on her beautiful Clapotis.

  I wish you could see how beautiful the yarn is.

Tara has made some progress on her Linen Stitch scarf.  The pattern comes from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.  We visited that shop during the 2012 Puget Sound LYS Tour.

Ellyol began hooking a bathroom rug.  Gotta love crochet.

We had a nice discussion about sewing amigurumi projects together, and Ellyol (who is a master at it) is going to put together a photo tutorial of her tips and tricks.  I will provide a link when she has it up.

We missed our missing members.

Where in the World is f1bercat?

Wow, another day, another 7.2 miles!  I  have passed the 300 miles mark and am at 306.33 miles knitted.

I am near Culp Creek, Oregon.

Really, who would have thought I could knit for 300 miles?

Go f1bercat!  (cheering myself on).

Stay safe and well.
