It was a super fun night tonight at Crossroads where the Eastside Stitchers met to knit and celebrate Emma's 1st birthday. No photos of the beautiful birthday girl, but I can show you my gift to her which was an Owl Hat.
JitteryKnitter brought the last 2 pair of mittens for the Detroit Achievement Academy. She has knit them flat in garterstitch, and I helped sew them together.
Puzan brought a new project. I want to say she is making a new sweater...
The next four projects were of the Exit 0 shawl. Let's hope I match the shawl with the right knitter.
After finishing her mittens, Wajio started another charity project, a boob, or more precisely a knitted knocker. Here is the information on this charity:
Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast.Iznik I heart you. This is to be a gift, and Tara is in the crunch time for finishing it. Here is an attempt at a close up so you can see how many beads she has used.
Fast Forward by Natalie Servant for show and tell.
So, Happy Birthday, again to Emma. It is just amazing that a whole year has passed since the first 4 of our crop of new Eastside Stitchers were born.
We have some more baby birthdays coming up, but not until after New Years!
