A Holiday Gathering

And a spirited one at that! We met at Chevy's in Annapolis and I do believe everyone had a good time! And just to prove it, here's some photos of our 'ahem" exchange.

Here is (from left to right) Gail, Jette, and Kelly, and Donna in the foreground.

Here's Kay, Alana, Kate, Judith and Debra.

Here's Gail, Jette and Kelly again. I thing this was a troublesome table. Of course it's also the table where I sat.

Debra had just had a primo gift "stolen". She thought it was safe, but nothing is safe until the game is over.

Everyone checking out the goods, hoping that what they've chosen is safe.

So, the next time we gather is the day after Christmas, December 26th. Come join us, share your holiday tales and sit a bit. Maybe even knit or crochet, or even just to have a drink.

November 12

Our meeting this past Monday was of course a lot of fun! With new people even! I actually remembered to bring my camera so that you lurkers out there can see what fun we're having and perhaps get inspired to come join us.

Here's Linda Looooooo and Gail. They're knitting away at helmet liners for a group of soldiers that another group they belong to have adopted. I've added the link if you want to give this a try. Yes, the military issues helmet liners to our fine service people. However, they are red (can you say bullseye?), and for ease of care they are also acrylic. I don't know about you, but if the temps drop down I'm not going to worry about how clean my helmet liner is. I want to be warm.
Here's Marseille and Jette. I can't remember what M was knitting. Jette was working on this sweater, a cardi that was totally amazing! BUT!!! When we inquired about the pattern, we were most disappointed to find it was in Danish. And I don't mean yummy pastries. She is going to try translating it. I think I need to sit with her and see just how this amazing and beautiful piece of work is done.
Dallas, who is president of the Maryland Metro Knitter's Guild, knit these for her granddaughters. Aren't they lovely? They're from Christmas Stockings.

This lovely piece of work being done by Alana. It's a lovely blend of angora and wool. And the pattern is one of the "surprises" from Knitty called Oblique. She's doing this one in angora so that it will remain hers and hers alone. This lil knitter does not fool around with the bunny fur as it makes her most miserable!

The cute little sweater on top, is one of Marseille's creations. Amazing isn't?!

And our Judith! We all adore our Judith!

Well, this next week is Thanksgiving. So I wish you all a safe and happy holiday. We'll be headed for the Eastern Shore for a big family dinner and the debut of my beautiful new grandson, Hayden.

The next time this motley crew gathers will be Wednesday, November 28th. Come join us!

Red Scarf Project

Okay folks, the Red Scarf Project for Annapolis Knits and Crochets is officially underway!

To read more about this project go here: Red Scarf Project.

I want you all to understand that is one of those projects where the proceeds actually stay here in the States. Not that I haven't done any knitting/sewing etc for projects around the Globe. This is a truly good cause -- In MY opinion. No I don't want to get into any politicial discussions. I want to knit.

Alana has worked out a rather beautiful option to the Knitting Daily Red Scarf. I'm working on her to get her to chart out her changes. Even the back side of the scarf is pleasing to the eyes. And for those of you who have knit cables, know that that doesn't happen too often!

So get that red yarn out!! KNIT or CROCHET a scarf.

We'll make a collection and send them off.

AH HA -- she does live

See, I am still around. Yes, I'm still in school attempting to tackle not one but two classes this semester. So far so good. Sanity - schmaity who needs to be sane?! Not me obviously.

Anyway, the Annapolis Knit and Crochet Group is getting ready to take the Red Scarf Challenge. Want to join in? Come on! All you need is a pair of needles and red yarn of your choice. Here's a link to Knitting Daily where you can pick up your own copy of the pattern and read more about the Red Scarf Project.

Our next gathering is coming up soon. You see it's been declared that twice a month is not enough. So there is an attempt being made to meet every week. Should be loads of fun, and a great chance to get crackin' on those Holiday Gifts! I know I've got a few that need my attention.

Also for more fibery fun and frolics don't forget the Maryland Artisan Tour coming up in October. This year's dates are October 19, 20 and 21st. To read more about the tour and print out your own map go here. It's a great opportunity to see Maryland come into her color, see the country side and have a really nice drive. Plus there are three places for great yarn!

That's it for me for now. I've given a couple of the ladies the ability to post here as well, but looks like they're worse then I am about posting!!
