Festival City Knitty in the Daytime

We couldn't have picked a nicer weekend to end the festival. The sun was shining and there was plenty of breezes to keep things cool and fresh. It was a very laid back group of knitters that sat in the Spiegel Garden sipping cool drinks and discussing the weekend's adventures. There were two finished objects to be admired: one machine knitted blue cardigan with handworked edging, and a baby blanket knit in a pinky-purple-bluey Koigu sock yarn for extra durability (the pattern came from the Stitch and Bitch book. :). Still in progress were a 1x1 rib swatch in merino 4ply, a fun yellow crocheted baby blanket with a really interesting stitch pattern and the body and first wing of that deadly villain Feathers McGraw of Wallace and Grommit fame. We also had our youngest attendee yet, a lovely 8 week old baby girl who fit right in to our relaxed and peaceful ambience. It was a small but relaxed group that met this month (my bad, last-minute organisation) but plans are afoot for next month and then we should be able to get a good crowd together again.

Come along next time!
