New Members = 2 Tables


What's that brightness?  Why, the sun, of course.  Another gorgeous day in the Pacific Northwest, today, and what was even better, Eastside Stitchers met at Crossroads in Bellevue.  We had two new to me people join us for stitching fun.  I am just going to say that I had to take the photos of everyone's projects out of order, and well, a lot of people brought new projects, so if I mess up who was doing what, tell me and I will fix it.

That being said, who was there and what were they stitching?

Wajio was learning how to kiss a fish... or knit a fish lips kiss heel. 
Chockelet has made huge progress on her crocheted afghan.  Yes, crochet is faster than knitting.  But, Chockelet, while not new to crochet, has not crocheted in years.  And yet, she is already so fast!
AspenD was working on some gorgeous black lace.
VanesaPolo is almost to the hip increases in her Serra Cardigan by Laura Aylor.
Skeinherder was busy knitting in Malabrigo for Stockpile 2013.  Tonight's project was a Footie slipper (I hope I got the right pattern.)

BlueBerryMary, another crocheter tonight, brought a finished lace shawl for Show and Tell, and a lace shawl in the same pattern that she is currently working on.

It is amazing to me how different the two shawls look. 

Wireknitter is back from her vacation with a beautiful new shawl she is test-knitting.  It's So I Gather by Susan Ashcroft.  It's a bit tough to see the texture caused by the gathering in the pattern in this photo, but it is a very unusual and striking pattern.
She also brought her finished Cameo for Show and Tell.  The lace edging is the perfect finish.
MustHaveSun has started a new Drops Cardigan.  She is using Eskimo Yarn from Yarn Studio.
MsWiz brought her red sweater.  She spent most of her time staring at the pattern.  I should have taken a photo of the pattern. Ha ha ha ha.
One of our new members, CrunchyNumbers, brought the back of a cable cardigan by Amy Herzog.  It is the Kittiwake Cardigan.  She is using Wool-Ease yarn in a lovely soft gray.
The cables in this piece are very interesting.  Not at all your typical cables.  We had a fun discussion about knitting cables with and without cable needles, the pros and cons.

Another newer member joined us at Crossroads tonight, JitteryKnitter.  She brought a beautiful vest by Elizabeth Zimmerman, the Rib Warmer.   She is knitting this as part of a KAL with the Seattle Knitting Guild.

Skeinherder and VanesaPolo were a bit late.  Why?  They were visiting our newest Eastside Stitcher, Addie!  born yesterday, October 8. Welcome, Addie, and bring your mom and grandma to Crossroads for some knitting.
