Vegas anyone?

Yesterday I went to knit with the Pasadena SnB group. I always have fun, but this week was especially fun. Why, you ask?

Madge showed up with some major loot! She had placed a group order for Socks that Rock from Blue Moon Fiber Arts and was delivering our goods.

Here's mine. The top color is called Highway 30 and the bottom is Sherbert. I have yet to finish a pair of socks other than a toddler sized pair that I made in a sock class. Now that I'm accumulating sock yarn, I guess I better start.

And then there's this! Madge made this beautiful felted pumpkin bowl and raffled it off to the group and I won. I feel my luck is turning around....

And then there were several FOs to share -

Marie made this adorable Pea Pod sweater for her new Grandson.

I wanted to leave with this. The other Marie made the Lady Eleanor Scarf/Wrap using Rowan Tapestry. It's very soft. Perfect for cuddling up in while watching TV.

And I was coveting this too. A lace shawl knitted with Handmaiden Sea Silk. This yarn is really special. It drapes beautifully and it feels like silk.

Two more projects on my wish list. What's on yours?

The pictures are great and made me feel like I was there! Congrats on winning the pumpkin, pumpkin.

Great pictures, Annette! Knitting is especially fun, now that you can come every week.

I think we all wanted to abscond with Marie's projects! I am doing a Lady E out of Tapestry myself, though, and I have some Sea Silk. I just know I won't be able to do the Pacific Northwest Shawl in 10 days like she did!
