A New Home

It was a cold, wet night for the first City Knitty at our new permanent venue at Chai teahouse. An impressive turnout managed to spread across a sizeable portion of the room, and brought a wide range of projects.
The cold weather seems to have inspired much warm fuzzy work, include a big cozy white cable scarf, a second iteration of a bright multicoloured chevron scarf, as well as a second test piece for a flowery cable scarf, two pairs of Knitty's very popular 'Fetching' gloves, both plain and stripy, a beautiful pair of mittens with fairisle flowers, a super-soft hat with an interlocking cable pattern in "SoftIce" merino and cashmere yarn, a long-running super-warm jumper, a wintery cardigan from "A season's tale", which has some very cool patterns for the rugged northern winters, and a shrug knitted on huge needles from three yarns(Rowan's 'holiday', Patons's 'splash' and a third merino yarn).
Also on display were a new cross-stitch project with beautiful sunset colours, an ipod cover double knitted as a tube, the continuation of a baby blanket, and a pair of baby mittens with delicate green highlights, and a cute dolphin stuffed toy.

Thanks to everyone who came, I had a really nice time and much enjoyed seeing everyone's projects :o)
