January 15th, 2011

It's a new year and I'm looking forward to what it holds! Are you?
We met this past Saturday to share some are a few photos.

 Here is Amanda showing us her completed teddy bear blanket for her daughter. She proclaimed she would never make another one of these! Way too many ends to weave in.

 This is Joan on the left and she and her daughter Kim, have been visiting with us for months. Kim is sitting on the other side of her mom. Anyway, Joan brought her other daughter Wendy on the right to visit with the Knit Nuts!
Welcome Wendy!

 This is Aura showing us her cute little owl hats that she made for her grandsons. They are just too cute! We enjoyed Aura's visit as she rarely gets to come due to her new job at the library. They moved her from the Mint Hill branch :( way out to the University area.

This is my sweet friend Gail. She has met with the Knit Nuts before but it had been awhile. She came armed with her knitting needles to knit a dishcloth. We helped to get her started on a new pattern called "Diagonal Beestitch Cloth" and she learned a new stitch! K1RB which is knit one into the row below.

I am so sorry that I don't have any pictures of our Christmas meetup which we had at my home the Saturday before Christmas. We had such a wonderful time together. We had decided to have a cookie swap as well for those that wanted to participate and everyone really enjoyed that.

I had the punch and Rose, Cindy and Debbie brought other to eat goodies.
 We also sampled our cookies. Rose had made each of us a set of stitch markers and Debbie made us all a dishcloth. 
Joan had made us each a very pretty flower corsage that pins to our coats or sweaters. I had some Paton bags for everyone to carry their goodies home in.

We really had a great time and if I have left something out, please someone log in and edit this post and let us know!
I appreciate all of you ladies that take time to meet each month. It's nice to share our love of fiber together!
I'm looking forward to the new year with you all!

This was our second meetup at The Coffee Garden. We really love the set up that they have and how we can all join in a circle to knit and crochet and share great conversation along with coffee and fiber.
 These are Amanda's pretty fingerless gloves. Amanda you've come a long way with your knitting since those dishcloths!

Rose had finished her sweater and brought it along for show and tell!

Joan was working on some fingerless gloves.

Debbie showed off one of her cute Christmas tree dishcloths! Oh and we all got one from her at our Christmas meetup at my house! I love mine Debbie!

Cindy showed us this pretty moss green scarf.

I am so behind in keeping up with our Knit Nut blog and so I'm trying to update at least the photos that I have for some of the past meetups. This was our first meetup at The Coffee Garden in Mint Hill.  We had always met at Dilworth Coffee at Hoods Cross Roads before and enjoyed meeting there for some time. However, we decided to move our meet ups out to Mint Hill and The Coffee Garden. So if you want to join us, stop by on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 2-4 pm. We'll be there!

 Kim and her mom Joan working on their projects.

  Cindy showing us her sock.

 For those of you who know Aura, you know she loves owls! These are a couple of her cuties.

 Rose showed us her beautiful shawl.

 and Debbie showed off her Christmas stocking.
