Fiber Friday's ROAR!


It's starting, our gorgeous sunrises.  One of the things I love about living this far north is that as winter approaches, the sun rises later and later, and lazy person that I am, I can watch the sun rise without having to get up early to see it.  The above photo was taken at 6:50 am. 

So, Lions took over the table today at Fiber Friday. 

Ha ha ha, my fellow Gryffindor, Zillalatte, joined us at Crossroads in Bellevue for some knitting.  We have chatted both in the HPKCHC thread and in the Eastside Stitchers thread about the possibility of meeting up to stitch together in real life, not just on line, and today was the day.

We started early at Crossroads, or well I thought I was getting there super early, but CodyJunk beat me there.  We grabbed a big circular table in the middle of the mall under the skylight, got ourselves some coffee (I had a skinny mocha from Starbucks), and were joined by CathieC before we could even sit down.

CathieC was working on her beautiful Racing Raindrops from Churchmouse Yarn & Teas.
Later, we were joined by Constance49, who was also working on a Racing Raindrops.

Connie is using variegated yarn, and variegated beads, too.

CodyJunk, the Queen of crocheted toys brought a beautiful pair of knit socks to show and tell.
She also brought a special toy for my youngest son, Pookie. 
She brought Pookie a Pookie.  Get it?  Garfield's teddy bear, "Pookie."  A gift to my son, Pookie.  I can't wait to send it to him.

CodyJunk was also knitting today.  She is making this cowl with a really interesting stitch pattern.
Zillalatte was knitting hats for charity.  We have an ongoing Charity Hat Challenge in Gryffindor.  Zillalatte was knitting the Braided Gems Hat by Elizabeth Ravenwood Designs.  This pattern is on sale until October 12, 2013 in the Ravelry store.  For every hat you make for charity, the designer will send you another free pattern from her designs.  There is a thread for this offer in the A Big Comfy Doghouse Group on Ravelry. 
JulieMustKnit brought her almost-finished Union Square Cowl.
She is running out of yarn.  I can't wait to see the finished project.

Winterpromise31 brought her Twisted Trellis Hat.  She has reached the decreases and should be closing up the top soon.

We talked about a Christmas Gift Exchange.  We are planning something in the Wednesday group, and thought that the Friday Fiber group could do something similar, but a bit smaller, perhaps simply bring a gift (amount to be determined), and blindly exchange it.  That would require zero stalking.  Just presents.  I'm always up for presents.

shaping the planet with a ROAR!
