Eastside Stitchers Show and Tell

Boats from Chihuly Garden and Glass


Tonight was the regular Wednesday, meet up for Eastside Stitchers at Crossroads, Mall, in Bellevue, WA. 

Some of us brought our yarn for show and tell for the members who were not able to join us on the Bellingham LYS Crawl.

But the main feature of the evening was of course, the stitching!  So who was there and what were they working on?

Skeinherder  brought her finished Churchmouse wrister to show off.

She was working on some Candy Corn Coasters.  Just in time for Halloween.

GwenS brought an almost finished Crooked Paths slouchy hat by Melissa LaBarre.

Gwen is knitting it in Madelinetosh Vintage in the Dahlia colorway.

Our own Jenknotsed8 was back!  She might be switching to days at her job, so we should be seeing her more often.  Welcome back, Jen.  Jen brought a Hermione Hearts Ron hat by Christy Aylesworth that she was starting in  Amber Trinket, by Madelinetosh.

Guess what Colleen was knitting?  A pink baby blanket, of course.  It is amazing how quickly she can knit these.  And she has so many pretty patterns, too.

Tara1682 had cast on one of her new projects purchased in Bellingham.  She has started Hypernova, the Scarf by Arlene's World of Lace, in her new yarn by The Periwinkle Sheep called Mallards by the Boathouse.  Tara found this yarn at NW Handspun.

Chocolet was also bit by the startitis bug going around the group.  She has cast on and gotten quite far on a beautiful Guernsey Wrap by Jared Flood, in some lovely Shepherds Wool, also purchased on the Crawl.

GwenS had also brought her WIP Guernsey Wrap:
Gwen's is in Shepherd's Wool, as well, but in the lovely shade of Pansy.

Hrvdmnky showed up a bit late, but brought her sock from last week.  This yarn is from Hrvdmnky's friend Tri-Coterie, an indy-dyer.

That does it for tonight.  People who were missing, we missed you!

Stay safe and well.
Shaping the planet one new cast on at a time.
