Catching Up!

So, this was a week for catching up...

Our friend Allison came to visit at our last Socks of Kindness knit-along and brought along her new friend, Walter. So, the group of us had a lot of catching up to do. It was so nice to see her!

We had a very nice crowd and most of us were knitting and trying to finish up our socks, some of which can be seen below in show and tell. of us had to buck the trend and paint! So cool!

And...well...there was also yarn barf (Karin's apropos term). Sally and a few others, here with Allison, spent much of the afternoon trying to untangle a mess of yarn. Unfortunately, after 3 hours of trying to get it rewound...the yarn won! Out came the scissors...

So, now it's my turn to catch up. We've had a lot of customer show and tell in the last few weeks. I left the list at the shop so I just hope I can remember everyone who knit what. If I don't put a name to the project, leave a comment if it's yours!

Annie was busy over the last month or so and knit all these pairs of fingerless mitts. Those grad students are sure spoiled!

Below are a pair of winding way idea whose they are though. Sorry.

This is Janice's Temple Cat Hat. She learned to knit this in a class here at the shop. So cute!

And a very cute baby cardigan. Again, I'm not sure who knit this.

Nancy C's Noro striped scarf. Knit with Noro Silk Garden and Ella Rae Sand Art. It came out so nice!

Kathy L's finished pair of Socks of Kindness.

That's Lisa P. standing behind that sweater. The sweater is gorgeous...
...and so is the Baby Kimono below. Cute, cute, cute...

Karen is below in her second Mobius Cowl of the week. She started it on Saturday and came in the next day with it done!
It took her just a little bit longer to knit the shawl but it was absolutely beautiful. It was worth it, right Karen?!?!?

Here is Karen and her first Mobius Cowl of the week and Mary with her beautiful Entrelac scarf!

Libby's Shawl Collared Cowl looks so soft and pretty below...

And her Broken Rib hat in the same Baby Alpaca Grande Hand-dye...

Here is Kathy and her Pacific Chunky Cabled hat.

Shiela made this great hat for a student at Berne-Knox-Westerlo. Their mascot is the Bulldogs. She knit the hat from the 60 More Quick Knits book and then added the spikes! So fun!

Another Sock of Kindness but I just can't remember whose it is.

But...these are Stevie's. She added a strand of mohair on the sole. They are so soft!

Looks like that's it for now. I have more pictures at the shop that I will try to upload in the coming week. I'm off to swatch for the February Fitted Pullover.

Have a great weekend!
