Knit nite 11/8/7

Knit-nite was busy this week! we could barley fit everybody around the table - but that's what makes it fun!

I pulled out my camera kinda late, but I did catch Sarah S. looking for the perfect shawl pattern. And a new beginner knitter came to join us - yeah!

The other Sarah finished her beautiful sweater from the book The Knitters Guide to yarn for Cocktails She made out of Cascade Pima Silk and the top is doubled with Madil Kid Seta, (both in Lime) to give it a fuzzier feel. I love seeing what one small strand of yarn can do to change the look of a yarn or fabric!

It turns out Rachael and Qiana were knitting the same hat - Foliage from from two different yarns. I think I want to try it now, in the chunky weight.

Rachel was also working on a beautiful sweater from an Elsebeth Lavold book: Designer's Choice, (book 6) and was trying to decide how to switch one neckline for another, having already finished the back for the origional neck - should she rip out 4 rows, or just try to finagle it?

Polly is getting close to finishing her poncho from the Loop-de-Loop book. I love how soft the yarn is, (Lana Grande) and it knits up so quick! Here she is trying it on to see how it's coming along:

The girls, Zoe and Natalie were up front, hamming it up:

And Laura finally finished her seed stitch scarf - with a little help binding off - doesn't it look great?

How awesome to be apart of a knit group. I wish there was one near my home. Maybe one day. I tried to get the girls at work to go, but they just aren't that into it. Thanks for the comment on my blog and good luck in my contest.
