Naaldzang November 2009 (English version)

Scatterbrained blogger! Here it is the 23rd and I'm only just now getting around to blogging about November's Naaldzang meeting. For shame! Better late than never, though, I always say. ;)

Naaldzang November 3rd, 2009

Knitters present, and their respective projects:

Myself: beige neckwarmer
Dominique: Vihtori Socks for Men
Poezemadam: Sculptured Lace scarf
T: pullover
R: pullover

A great time was had by all! This was a bit of an unusual meeting though, because neither Jan nor RedSamur could join us. First time that they've both been absent and it was strange indeed! Hope you can make it for December's meeting, you guys, because we missed you.

We did have a new face this time--Poezemadam brought along her friend T, who is new to knitting and already doing quite well. :) T was working on a pullover and also brought a pair of slippers that she'd finished (with nice yarn from the kringwinkel, score!). R was also busy with a pullover, and she showed us the Sculptured Lace scarf she made for her husband. So lovely and squishy and warm!

We also oohed and aahed over Dominique's finished red shawl:

She dyed the yarn herself! I have to say it came out brilliantly. :)

This post is rather short, so I'm filling it with photos. ;) I'll make sure to update the blog sooner next time! It's been a hectic month, that's all I can say. Several birthdays, lots of running around doing other things, preparing for winter. Speaking of winter, I hope it gets cold soon so we can actually wear our lovely projects! Happy crafting, everyone!
