Tonight was the regular Wednesday meet up of the Eastside Stitchers at Crossroads Mall in Bellevue, WA. We are continuing to grow as a group, and took up 2 tables again tonight.
Who was there and what were they knitting?
MsWiz has made some great progress on her Sheepish by Alana Dakos. She has finished the body and is ready to pick up the neck.
One of our newer members came tonight and brought her sister. Choclatier07 was knitting some fingerless gloves, the Blue Wild-Indigo Mitts by Tamara Moots. She is using Premier Yarns Serenity Sock Weight yarn in Lavender Topaz.
GwenS was working on a Darkside Cowl in Malabrigo (surprise surprise) Worsted. The colorway has the great name of "Hummingbird." GwenS got this yarn in the Malabrigo group's destash super cheaply.
Redbird1 was trying to finish up a beautiful Jeweled Cowl by Sachiko Uemura in Malabrigo Lace, in Black. GwenS knitted this beautiful cowl last year, but all my photos of Gwen's cowl were horrible. I think I got a better photo of Redbird1's tonight.
Skeinherder was knitting another Purled Christmas Tree. This pattern, by Anna Sudo, is a free Ravelry download.
Tara1682 was working on a pair of fingerless mitts, the Straightforward Mitts by Simone Draeger. Tara was using up her skein of Periwinkle Sheep yarn in (what has to be one of my favorite names, ever) Mallards by the Boathouse.

Good night! It's The Hobbit tomorrow. I can't wait! We are going to the midnight show.
