Knitting Guild Night

Last Thursday night was our local Knitting Guild meeting. I have been away so much this summer that I missed the last 3 or 4 meetings. It was good to see everyone at this meeting and to catch up on the knitting progress. It was bring a friend night, and we ended up with a decent crowd:

Various knitters volunteered to demonstrate techniques. Buffie is working on this lovely cable sweater from Rowan. I asked her lots of questions about cables, since that is on my list for the fall.

This is Barbara. She's been knitting for over 40 years. The gorgeous cabled sweater she is holding is made of Irish yarn for her granddaughter who is starting college in the North this fall. It needs some buttons, and it will be done. Beautiful!

Here's Paul's Kumo Kimono from Knitty. It looks great--notice the opened arms?

And Rowena's first sock! Yeah! Looks great!

Here is another set of socks in yummy Opal. The BVKG is doing a sock knit along to get everyone hooked on sock knitting. I took my last sock with the funky heel and got a few tips. I turned the second sock and it looks much better!

There was also a silent auction. I took a bunch of old Interweave Knit magazines that I had doubles and Nancy of the Hook and Needle scooped them up. Look at us bidding.

I had a great night. I won the lion brand skein as a door prize and the Opal sock yarn in the silent auction. I'm thinking of a cute little hat for Anna out of the Lion Brand. The opal heads into the stash until I think of what comes next....
