Tuesday night knitting

Was amazing! There was a huge turnout - at least nine regulars, a few new people, plus four refugees from from another local kntting group. Normally there are only three or four of us. It was actually a bit overwhelming and hard to carry on conversations, but exciting, too.

Jillian brought a lovely wooden spindle for Lynne to try (she failed miserably), Ingrid appeared with a huge bag of stash to give away, and Jennie modeled her new cloche hat. But the most thrilling event of the evening? The fairy door sighting!

Knit Fest 2005

Hi All!

I sent an email out to the yahoo group, but I thought I would mention it here as well.

Lynne told us about Knit Fest 2005 at knit-in on Tuesday. I am definitely going! Is anyone else interested? There are several classes that I am interested in that are on Friday & Saturday so I am thinking of getting a room for 1 (maybe 2)night(s). I would love to split with someone. :)

There are a few classes that are already full, so I recommend registering asap.

Any takers?

Must be the perfect summer project. Four of us got together on Tuesday at Sweetwaters and we all had socks in our bags. And Elisha had a lovely red shoe (two of them, actually).

Clockwise from top: Elisha's lovely Opal pastel socks, Lynne's gorgeous candy-colored socks, my preppy-disco socks (thar's glitter in 'em!), and Kim's not-enough-patterning blue Fortissima so-I'll-make'em-anklets anklet.
