Emily's Rock Star


Jerry is my rock star!
Originally uploaded by CreativeExile.

So, all you slackers who didn't come to Knit In last night because you had more important things to do (holidays? what holidays?!) missed the grand reincarnation of JERRY GARCIA in all his perfect grey-haired, pot-bellied glory! Mmm, squeezably soft, too!

Of course, he was without legs or his trademark silver glasses, but Emily reassured us that he will be complete before finding his way underneath her Dad's Christmas tree. Her felted bag turned out great, too.

And I hear Kate finished the Flying Spaghetti Monster! Way to go!!

Knitted Gift Labels and Knit-Alongs

Are you looking for some cool labels for you knitted gifts? Then check out this blog, and click on the link for knit gift labels in the "more stuff" column on the left-side. I found these labels through a holiday knit-along that I joined. It's not too late to join, or just check out all of the great gifts that people are making. Finally, I mentioned last week that I plan on joining a knit-a-long called Knit & Crochet the Classics. The idea is that each month everyone reads the same classic novel, and then knits or crochets a project that is inspired by the novel. I'm going to join in January, and we will be reading Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolfe. Anyway, I hope you all have a happy holiday and find some quality knitting time.

HP Geeks Knit!

We haven't been blogging here much, but we have been hanging out at the cafe, knitting irresponsibly and generally causing trouble.

Here's Denise and Kim, furiously knitting on their Harry Potter scarves. Don't tell them that the movie already came out. Slackers.















And here's Ingrid knitting some lace in the palette of the Australian landscape:

Carribou Coffe Report

So there were several people at Carribou last night, more than have been at Sweetwaters in a few weeks actually. Carla & I were the first to arrive, followed closely by Elisha & Anne. Elisha only stayed for about a half an hour, but her seat was promptly filled by new member Victoria, who is making a GORGEOUS scarf out of Kid Silk Haze using a pattern by Kim Hargreaves. Emily also joined us, just as Carla was leaving.

Keely & Lynne stopped by briefly but unfortunately couldn't stay. Lynne had a very bad cold & had no voice at all.. but that didn't stop her trying! ;) Hope you are feeling better!

In general, the atmosphere was nice.. however it is very small & there was a shocking lack of comfy chairs. I believe the general consensus was that we would give it a few more trys. Thursday seems to be a great alternative night & it would be nice to have another meet-up option if you can't make it on Tuesday.
