Wed Night with the Eastside Stitchers

This has been such an amazing fiber filled week for me.  And, by week I mean from last Friday evening to tonight.  Friday after work, I met up with VanesaPolo and we carpooled to Acorn Street Yarns for their Fall Fest Fashion Show.  Saturday and Sunday were filled from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm with Fiber Fusion in Monroe, Monday afternoon was the regular meetup for my new school stitching club (more about that later), and tonight the regular Wednesday meetup for the Eastside Stitchers.  In between, I spent my time (when not at work or sleeping) knitting, hooking and spinning.  Life is good.

But, enough about me.  Who made it to Crossroads, and what were they knitting/hooking?

WireKnitter is test knitting a new shawl by Lisa Hannes named Sand Layers.

CrunchyNumbers brought two very different projects to work on.  She is knitting Nurmilintu, a shawl by Heidi Alander.
She also brought her beautiful cabled socks by VeryBusyMonkey, Cadence Socks.
SpinningLizzy brought her Rock Strata Mitts by Josh Ryks.  She knit these out of her own handspun.
GwenS is making good progress on the sweater she is knitting for her OWL. The pattern is Harvest by tincanknits.
NightOrchid is almost finished with a pair of Dulaan Easy-On Mitts.  I think she will be turning these into a pair of Dino-Mitts for the beautiful Anya.  I got to play act the Goldilocks and the three bears story with Anya tonight (I was the Papa Bear).  What a wonderful imagination she has.
BlueBerryMary brought a cool crochet shawl she is knitting on consignment.  The pattern is called Vintage Shawl.  After finishing the circle, Mary will fold it in half, and then add a border.
Mary brought a Christmas scarf that she knit for herself,
And the Santa beard she hooked using the new loop crochet stitch she learned last week.  Ho Ho Ho!
Wajio has made good progress on the hat she is knitting for the Methow Valley Fire Survivors.  Wajio is using her favorite hat pattern, Rib-A-Roni by Jane Tanner.
VanesaPolo and her beautiful daughter joined us for dinner, as did GwenS's daughter.  Hvrdmnky was there for the knitting, but I went off with Anya to play Papa Bear, and forgot to get a photo of the hats she was finishing!
