First October Meet Up


If it's Addie, it must be Wednesday, and the regular meet-up of the Eastside Stitchers at Crossroads in Bellevue.

GwenS brought her Exit O shawl by Laura Aylor.
She is using 3 colors of Tosh Merino Light.  GwenS also brought the beginning of an Antler Hat by TinCanKnits.  This one is in Malabrigo and is part of October Stockpile with the Malabrigo Junkies.

JulieMustKnit brought her Exit O shawl, too, but I didn't get a photo of it because I was too busy taking photos of her Finished Objects that she brought for Show and Tell.

She brought some mittens and hats for the Detroit Achievement Academy.
Julie also brought her finished Ferns hat by Alana Dakos.
The yarn is Misti Alpaca Tonos Worsted, and feels absolutely wonderful.

Wajio also brought a charity mitten to knit, but her show and tell item was so fascinating, that I forgot to take a photo.  She spent the weekend at the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival where she took a knitting class in knitting gloves from the top down.
This little glove is the sample she knit in the class.  The technique is absolutely fascinating, ReadNitDream and I spent a lot of time listening to just how these were knit...with a double-knit technique and flat... but not sewn together.  Really cool.

Chockelet made it tonight after a long absence.  She brought a beautiful Magic Three-Yarn Scarf and Wrap in lovely gray and violet.
CathieC is also doing the Exit 0 Shawl.  There is a Knit-A-Long thread for this shawl in Eastside Stitchers because so many of us are knitting it.

ReadNitDream brought a Knit Capelet by Mary Jane Protus to work on.

But, she was wearing a beautiful shawl that covered her February Fitted Pullover by Amy Herzog.  I'm pretty sure the shawl was Passing Through Shawl by Debbie Stone.

Just before I left, DomesticShorthair arrived.  I love that members feel like they can drop in and knit even if they haven't been able to come for a while.  The relaxed and welcoming atmosphere of our group is really great.  It helps that some of us are GREAT at remembering names.
Domesticshorthair was knitting a Fast Forward scarf by Natalie Servant.  The beautiful green yarn is by Blue Moon Fiber Arts.

September was a busy but productive month.  October started with gorgeous weather (once the clouds burned off).  It should be a terrific Fall.
