LOTS to show

So much to show you! Lots of customers stopped in to show their finished projects, and we also had the Knitting Olympics show-and-tell at the knit in last week. (Knitting Olympics projects will be abbreviated to "KO project" below.)

But first, look a this cutie who came to visit with his mom, Meagan:

This is Thomas and he is five months old. He was doing lots of smiling until I took out the camera!

And Nancy M. brought in these sweaters to show me. They were made by her grandmother when she was living in Poland and they were made with all different kinds of yarn in her own, made up pattern.

It's hard to tell in these pictures but the sweaters have all different textures because of the different scraps of yarn she was using (which she had to do since there wasn't enough money to buy yarn for a whole sweater).

On to show-and-tell:

Susan with her lace shawl made with an alpaca yarn:

Beautiful, and very soft too!

Lisa's hat made, with Noro Kureyon, that will be felted. Pre-felting, it measured 17 inches long!

Barb's beautiful ribbed scarf:

Tina's kimono made with Encore Tweed:
So cozy -- and the tweedy yarn is perfect for this pattern!

Linda's felted bowl:
...embellished with pretty wooden beads.

Amy's comfy Wonderful Wallaby made for her son:
....and her KO project -- a pair of socks!
I love the colors!
Lisa's baby sweater made with Encore Colorspun:
By the way, Lisa donated one of the Knitting Olympics prizes, a handmade wooden nostepinne (won by Diane G).
Ok, good segue.... the other prizes were:
A skein of Periwinkle Sheep sock yarn. (won by Mary Kate)
A skein of Silky Wool, with the nostespinne
Ravelry mugs (won by Nancy E and Joan T)
Ravelry Tote Bag (won by Elizabeth)
Ravelry glasses (won by Linda)

She made the scarf wider than the pattern called for - beautiful!
