Ugh! No photos for Eastside Stitchers

I left my memory card in my computer!

Can I recreate the evening?  Everyone was knitting new things!  Well, almost everyone.

Skeinherder was there at the table when I arrived a bit before 5 pm.  She was knitting some striped knee socks.  Well, one striped knee sock.  Purple yarn striping with a beautiful variegated/self striping yarn.

VanesaPolo was starting a new sweater.  I believe it is a pattern by Barbara Walker.  The construction is very interesting.

Chockelet was wearing a beautiful Before and After scarf by Churchmouse Yarn & Teas.  She brought another  finished version of the scarf.

Wajio brought baby gifts.  She has finished the baby booties for both GwenS and VanesaP.  She also brought flannel receiving blankets and other newborn goodies.  Such generous and thought gifts.  What was she knitting?  More baby booties, but this time for charity.

Anerenbe came and brought a friend, whose Rav Name I didn't get, so I will call her K tonight.  Anerenbe has cast on a Linen Stitch Scarf.  She is using this beautiful variegated yarn by Sunshine Yarns in the Esme Island color way with Miss Babs in Regent as the coordinating color.

K was knitting a cowl, also in a yarn by Sunshine Yarns.  I'm not sure, but I think the pattern is Shifting Sands Scarf by Grumperina.

GwenS was actually knitting the sleeves on her baby sweater, the Antler Cardigan by TinCanKnits. seamless yoked baby cardi  (we think).

Colleen brought a drop stitch scarf.  She was using some ribbon yarn.  The pattern was showing off the yarn, beautifully.

Vivi brought her teddy bear.  She couldn't stay long, but it was so nice to see her.

Towards the end of the evening, after most of the early risers had left, AmiGirl arrived.  Of course, she was knitting her Sprucey Lucy socks by Wendy Johnson.  Last time we saw Amigirl, she had to rip back everything she had knit at Crossroads, and had ended the evening in negative knitting territory.  I am happy to say that she made up the lost inches, and has reached the heels of the socks.

So sorry about the no photos, especially to Gwen and Vanessa.
