Spring Like Weather in February

What a nice surprise it was to see Larissa join the Knit Nuts on this beautiful spring-like afternoon. She commented she had not been in a year. Hope she does not stay away that long this year. Larissa, you are a lot of fun to be around. I loved hearing her say: "I don't feel this yarn", as she was knitting something and was not happy with it. I suggested she do a drop stitch scarf with the beautiful yarn she brought.

Larissa's Drop Stitch Valentine Scarf.

Connie brought everyone a Valentine heart filled with mini but useful and practical knitting/crochet tools and candy too. Thank you Connie. Thanks to Pat for the candy and to Aura for the banana bread.

Rose brought quite a few projects she has completed. We all fell in loved with all of them.
Connie proudly displays her crochet creation. A lot of piecing is involved but she is not minding that one bit. This project is going fast.
Pam working smoothly on something special and being able to talk to Rose at the same time. She did not do the Pam thing (ripping) to my knowledge during this meeting.

Cheryl brought her adorable sock monkey who made friends with Aura's gnome. Hopefully, Connie will post their picture.

Janice was also working on her crochet baby blanket, I think....Pat worked on one her shawls and smiled pretty during this meet up.

Robin brought her finished baby crochet blanket and shared about not being totally happy. We all reassured her that it was beautiful and will keep someone warm and snug once all wrapped up. We all learn something with every project.

Happy knitting - crocheting - Love you all - Aura

February 7, 2009

This past Saturday we had 9 ladies that were able to come and share some knitting and crocheting!

We had an awesome time together and enjoyed seeing some completed projects as well.

Cheryl and Aura showed off their recent FO's. Cheryl brought the Sock Monkey that she

designed herself and Aura showed off her Christmas Gnome.

Cheryl also brought her little Alien. Rose brought in her fab Bella's mittens that she had

reworked to include a peek-a-boo slot so that she could easily get her fingers out to use her cell.

She also brought in her latest buddy bag and her Scarf with a Pocket.

I (Connie) had brought my completed Maxi and the beret I designed to go with it.

Pat had brought in her Granny Square afghan to show Robin.

Robin brought her (finally) LOL completed pink and white baby blanket and had already

started on another yellow one. This time working it in the round.

We then settled in to work on our projects. Pam was knitting her mom's sweater that she is planning to give her on Mothers Day. I was working on my Prairie Afghan. Larissa was working on her Milkweed Project and then also started a red drop stitch scarf. Robin was crocheting her yellow baby blanket with her usual invented crochet stitch! Cheryl was busy on another Alien and Janice was starting a Tiramisu Baby Blanket. I know Aura was working on something but I can't remember what? Sorry Aura! She really was up and walking around most of the meeting visiting with each of us and taking photo's not only for us, but for the group next to us as well that was having I think a baby shower.

During our meeting Larissa had shown me her knitting bag where she had crocheted some yarn over the handles because her bunny had chewed them up. This was such a clever idea! So I had to come straight home and do the same to my straw bag. I also added some yarn around the top edge. Thanks Larissa for inspiring me!

We (Connie, Pam, Pat, Aura, Larrisa, Rose, Robin, Janice and Cheryl) really had a nice time and the weather was nice and mild and sunny and it was a perfect day to sit and knit!

See you next time!
