Happy Turkey Day!!


Check out these beauties done by Alana! The way this girl gets her projects done you'd never know she has two of the most beautiful kiddies in the world!! They are Filatura Lanarota Cuzco sport weight 100% Alpaca. Sorry, I can't remember the pattern. But I do remember that I got it off the internet.....somewhere.

And for Christmas gifts she did these...

You can knit one of these little beauties too. The pattern is here. And while you're there check out the other cool designs at Hello Yarns. These two were done in Paton's DK natural and black. One ball of each color.

Oh and for the record here is Logan

And this little beauty is our Princess of Knit, Sidney

Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday and that if you're shopping til you drop that it's for yarn!

If you happen to be in the Annapolis and wonder where those crazed knitters and crocheters gather here's the 411:

Every 2nd Monday of the month and 4th Wednesday of month we meet at the Annapolis Borders in the Seattle Best Cafe. It's upstairs in front of the windows. We start gathering officially at 7:00pm but most start showing up sooner. Also, some us occasionally meet before hand for dinner so drop me an e-mail if you're interested in eating too.

And yes, we will be meeting next Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Come share your favorite holiday stories and recipes with us too!

Knit Night at Borders

Oh and crochet too! Our friend Kate has been crocheting some wonderful little hats from leftover yarn. And all these little beauties will be going to the Prez in the Caps to the Capitol campaign. I'll look for the photos that I took for you. They're really cute. Got some leftover yarns? Knit or crochet some caps! Those babies need them!

These little beauties are the mittens that Kathy was working on in the last post. Aren't they wonderful! And she did a great job on the thumbs.
