We had two new members stitching at Crossroads tonight, bethanyr and Adventuretwin. Both of them won prizes in the 2013 North Puget Sound Yarn Tour. Woot! Eastside Stitchers are winners, again.
We know it's all about the
But really, we had a big group tonight even though we were missing quite a few people. Our group is getting big enough, that even if people are on vacation (say... in England), busy watching movies with their sons, or just MIA, we still can need 2 tables.
Our new members brought some beautiful knitting to work on.
bethanyr was wearing a beautiful sweater. I am not 100% sure, because I didn't think to ask, but I think she was wearing an Edie by Michele Wang. She was starting a new pair of socks, using a vanilla sock pattern from Churchmouse Yarn & Teas.
Scalene by Carina Spencer in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in three colors: Venetia, Flashdance, and Fathom.
She also brought a Candide Herringbone Raglan Pullover by Candide Yarns in Fleece Artist Blue Faced Leicester in Natural/Undyed. For undyed yarn, this has such beautiful colors.
Wireknitter brought a finished pair of Welted Fingerless Gloves by Churchmouse in Manos de Uruguay Silk Blend.
TGV (High Speed Knitting) by Susan Ashcroft in Austermann Murano Lace.
Wajio brought her first pair of toe up socks. She dyed the yarn herself in a class last fall, started the socks, made some progress ... then lost them. She found them last week, and brought them tonight.
Flared Baby Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman. And a hat she designed herself to go with the sweater.
She also brought a Surplice Baby Jacket by EZ
Hrvdmnky brought her gazillion doilies. Weaving in ends is so much easier, when you are with friends. What will Hrvdmnky make with these? I have no idea.
It is so much fun to wear matching socks.
