Great night at the Eastside Stitchers meet up at Crossroads Mall in Bellevue.
First we are all congratulating our friend MsWiz who was not present because she was at the Westminster Dog Show in New York with her champion Eskimo, Ms. Wiz's Rain of Terror. Rain won best of opposite sex in the show. So absolutely exciting!
So, who did show up to knit, and what were they working on?
Skeinherder has finished the first of her Smaug socks.
Jolly Wee Elf pattern from Churchmouse Yarn and Teas. She has finished herself, her husband, and 2 of their cats. Yes! Cat Gnomes!
French Press Slippers version 2. She made a beautiful pair for herself already. I had fun listening to her describe the felting process.
Colleen was once again working on her crocheting techniques. She is making headbands with flowers for an upcoming YMCA fundraiser.
GwenS was working on her Clockwork shawl. She is using yarn from Huckleberry Knits and Periwinkle Sheep.
We had a visiting Stitcher from Canada, Lookout. No, don't you look out, "Lookout" is the name of our Canadian visitor. She was working on a pair of socks in a pretty blue yarn from Austermann Step.
Redbird1 was working on her beautiful Biscuit cowl.
Mona's Jacket by Mags Kandis.
Many of us will be at Madrona this weekend. I will be there on Friday. I don't plan to take a class, just hang out and knit (as usual), and perhaps look for yellow sock yarn in the market. A warning to those who might want to join us at Crossroads on this coming Wednesday (Feb 15, 2013), there will be no Eastside Stitchers Fiber Friday as most of us (including me) will be at Madrona. I hope to see you there. Please come up and say hi.
Those of you who are sick (there are a few bugs going around here), get well soon. We missed you. And once more, Congratulations MsWiz and Ms. Wiz's Rain of Terror on your victory at Westminster.
shaping the planet with stitching buds.
