Eastside Stitchers discuss Lifelines


Something that bugs me:  1 person sitting at one of the big round tables at Crossroads all alone, and obviously not waiting for people to join her.  Especially when that table, is the one that the Eastside Stitchers use.

Well, you can tell by my cheerful opening that the Eastside Stitchers met tonight at Crossroads in Bellevue, WA.  Eventually we got one of the big round tables, so I guess I shouldn't complain.

We had a smaller group, tonight, but still lots of great knitting, and I brought my camera, so we have photo proof.

CathieC brought her Racing Raindrops scarf by Churchmouse Yarn and Teas.
She has reached and passed the 50% mark (see the stitchmarker), weighed her yarn, and... she has ENOUGH to finish the shawl!

VanesaPolo brought her finished Ripples by Annelie Wallbom. The yarn is Hazelknits Sock.  VanesaP got the free pattern from Serial Knitters on the 2013 North Puget Sound LYS Tour last May.
 VanesaP was working on a Baby Surprise Jacket in MadelineTosh.
BlueBerryMary brought some new sock yarn to start a scarf.
After a bit of work, the lace pattern was visible.
BlueBerryMary also brought some show and tell, the two scarves she had been knitting last week.

Wajio is knitting the LAST 2 BABY BOOTIES!  Yay, Hip Hip Hooray!  Only... how many ends was it to weave in?
Tara1682 was hard at work on her Linen Stitch Scarf.  Here is Last Week's Photo:
Ok, that photo is really from 2 weeks ago.  But count the stripes, there are 11.  Now look at the scarf she brought tonight:
 13 stripes, and the beginning of the 14th.  Real progress.

Toward the end of the evening, Colleen joined us, but for chatter, not to knit.  So glad her move went well.

We spent some time discussing the best string for Lifelines (dental floss), and how to string them. We also discussed the Right Yarn for the Right project.  This made us talk about the podcast, Yarniacs.  They are starting a really interesting discussion on wool from different sheep breeds.  I was very intrigued by their descriptions.  I am really looking forward to hearing their interviews over the next few weeks.
