Eastside Stitchers Finish Projects


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.
Really, this sweater is going to be adorable.

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.
Her sister, A, our newest group member, was working on a scarf in super bulky yarn.
Welcome to our group.

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.
Skeinherder brought her first tree to let us use as our centerpiece tonight.
Wajio was just starting some Toe-up socks. But she was mainly working on gauge, tonight.
Wajai's big news was her yarn.  She was recently on a trip to Australia and New Zealand.  The yarn she bought while down under, and shipped home, had arrived.  She brought some to Show and Tell.  The most amazing yarn she brought was part Possum.  Not the O'possum we have here in the United States.  This possum is a major pest and an ecological disaster in New Zealand.  I don't know much about that, but the yarn from it's fur is really amazingly soft.

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.
Chockelet was knitting once again on her Summer Lace Scarf.  She got the pattern and the beautiful Swan's Island Yarn at Mrs. Hudson's Yarn and Teas in Bellingham, WA.
Hvrdmnky has dropped down 2 needle sizes, and is making nice progress on her Pagona Shawl by Stephen West.

Just before the mall closed, Chockelet finished and bound off her Summer Lace Scarf!
It is truly lovely.  I vow to never make fun of Chockelet's lack of progress, again.  At least for a week.

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