It's that time of year again, where the weather gets colder, snow may or may not fall, and needles everywhere are clacking away with Christmas knitting. And this past Tuesday was a very special day--it was the 1st birthday of Naaldzang! I had not realized this, but RedSamur reminded us (and she had chocolate cake to celebrate). ;)
There were five of us in total: Myself, RedSamur, Poezemadam and her friend R, and Jan. Lovely projects to be seen!
A silk lace scarf from Jan, in progress.
Another (finished) lace scarf by Poezemadam.
R's sweater-in-progress, in shades of purple.
During the course of our meeting Poezemadam busied herself with the start of a pretty sweater; I was knitting away on my pinwheel baby blanket whilst RedSamur crocheted a spider for her brother's girlfriend, if I remember correctly. Jan worked on his silk lace scarf (a gift for his wife--lucky gal!). We all had a great time, and it was nice to meet R, a talented knitter with a warm smile. :) I ended up having to leave a little bit earlier than I had originally planned, and was also not as talkative as I usually am due to being extra tired lately. I'm feeling more lively now, and itching to get the needles back in my hands!
I would like to personally thank RedSamur for getting the ball rolling for our Naaldzang meetings one year ago, and I also thank everyone who has come to our meetings, for making them a wonderful thing and a part of my life that I really enjoy. Thank you all so much!
