Eastside Stitchers Knit, Talk Babies (what else?) and Redbird1's Garden


The newest Sock Madness pattern has arrived in my email, and as I am trying to knit like the wind, while doing about 100000000 other things, I am going to keep this post to the point.

The point is, of course, who was at Crossroads tonight, and what were they knitting?  I already said that we discussed babies. But there was quite a bit of discussion on how beautiful Redbird1's garden is, the Eastside chapter of the Eastside Stitchers.

Anyway, back to what we were all knitting.

GwenS was knitting the sleeves of an Antler Cardigan by TinCanKnits.  In order to get sleeves of the same length, she was knitting them 2-at-a-time.  This is her first attempt at this technique, and she was bopping along quite well on these 2 sleeves.

Skeinherder has made great progress on her Braided Slip Stitch Cowl from Country Yarns, or as Skeinherder called it, "the Biker Store."

She got this pattern on the North Puget Sound LYS Tour two weeks ago.  You might remember that Country Yarns' street was blocked from parking on the day we went there by a biker rally.
We all loved the shop, though, and the free pattern for the tour.

Tara1682 was knitting her 3rd Linen Stitch Scarf by Churchmouse Yarn & Teas.  She is using up 2 partial skeins of yarn.
WireKnitter brought in a beautiful FO, her East Coast Line by Susan Ashcroft.  It is amazing how soft, as well as beautiful, this shawl is.
She was working on an old UFO (unfinished object) that she had recently unearthed.  This lovely shawl is the Arananis.  I think that is the right name.  I can't find it on Ravelry, which makes me think that I wrote it down wrong.  It is a very lovely wave pattern, and I am sorry I messed up the name.  Edited on Thursday May 30 because WireKnitter sent me the link to the shawl, the name is Aranami Shawl by Olgajazzy.

Colleen is knitting a Spiderman Blanket for a very lucky young man.  This young Spidey fan is expecting a new baby in his family, and the blanket will be something special just for him.
Anerenbe, back from her wedding planning life was knitting a blanket by Jared Flood, the Umaro Blanket.

Chockelet is back to work on her Charlotte's Web in Madelinetosh and Sweet Georgia Sock.
Hrvdmnky was working oVanessan the Rivel Cardigan.Miles and miles of ribbing.

VanesaPolo has finished her Holden Shawlette
2 pairs of  BABY SOCKS!

Vanesa also brought in her T-shirt basket.  She made the yarn her solf out of recycled T shirts.

This very clever pattern was from the Skacel shop,

We really had fun tonight.  Join us if you can.  And if you can't please join us in chatting on our Threads.
