Wednesday of Mid-Winter Break

It was a good night for knit hats and mittens.

The Eastside Knitters had our regular meet up at Crossroads in Bellevue.  I left a bit early as I am headed down to Southern California tomorrow to visit my brother and my Mom and Dad.  It's Mid-Winter Break right now for my school district, and I am having a wonderful week off.

On Saturday, I drove to Tacoma with GwenS to hang out at the Madrona Fiber Arts Festival.  I stuck to my yarn diet pretty well, and only  bought one skein.  I have been wanting some gradient yarn, so I bought this gorgeous cake from Huckleberry Knits.
And!  I made a down payment on a Pocket Wheel.
Sunday was Yarn Church at Panera's where I worked on my Bigger On The Inside Shawl in the T.A.R.D.I.S. colorway by Schmutzerella.
Monday I knit away on the TARDIS shawl and a new wrap I'm designing, as well as hooking another square for my niece's pink afghan.
Yesterday, I started playing with loop stitch knitting and made a Sheep finger puppet, and a sheep stuffie.

Then, today Moogie and I went to the Seattle Art Museum to see an amazing exhibit of Kehinde Wiley's portraits.
Followed by the regular Wednesday night meet up of the Eastside Stitchers.
