Yarn Church

What an amazingly beautiful Fall day.  The air is crisp and clear, and the trees are beginning to turn their Fall colors.  Panera's in Redmond was very busy, I think there must have been some hiking clubs stopping in for breakfast before enjoying the chance to hike the Cascades before it is too wet and cold.  The group room was empty, though, and we were able to snag it for our Sunday, Yarn Church, Eastside Stitchers meet up.
KelleyR has finished the body of her raglan sweater that she brought to the Knitting Retreat.  She has begun work on the sleeves.
Wajio is starting a new Rib-A-Roni hat by Jane Tanner. This is becoming her go-to hat pattern.
GwenS has started a new cowl.  She had quite a bit of the ribbing finished by the time we left.

BlueBerryMary is working on the flap of her convertible mittens.  She has straightened out the cable twists, and they are looking beautiful.
Mary also brought some alpaca fiber she picked up yesterday at the Issaquah Salmon Days Festival for show and tell.

VanesaPolo brought three of the "Be Seen Hat" by Steven Be that the Eastside Knitters Guild is making for the Fire Quilts for the Knit and Stitch Fire Survivors of Okanogan County‏ effort.  I know that name is a mouthful.  Basically, this is an effort to provide the people effected by the massive fires in Washington State with quilts and warm winter hats.  Steven Be has donated a pattern, and the group is looking for yarn donations.  From what I understand, they are hoping to gather 1000 quilts and hats to give out.  Members of our Guild are stepping up to this challenge to make 1 - 4 hats by the end of October.  BlueBerryMary has also finished 3 hats already!
