The knitters enjoyed the table of projects. I brought along projects from Itty-Bitty Toys, Itty-Bitty Nursery and Itty-Bitty Hats. Since we were driving to the event and my husband was there to help lug stuff for me I took advantage. It is fun to see projects from all three books together. That's a lot of knitting! These photos were before the meeting began.
The toys are ready to go! Waiting for the knitters to arrive can be difficult.
The toys and baby items were played with and loved. I love how the adults adore the toys. They love to play just like the kids. Two die-hard sweater knitters told me after the meeting that they are quitting sweaters and starting toy knitting! I loved that. They may never go back to the sweaters again. We'll have to see....
There was a charity knitting drive going on with lots of donated baby items. The guild sold Itty-Bitty books with the proceeds going to the guild and I think they sold out which is good.
The meeting was well-attended. The knitters were enthusiastic as they always are.
The Collector took these photos for me at the end. I love to see what she sees.
The baby always gets lots of attention (the woman on the left). People love her belly-button and her ruffled underpants. They always look under the dress and I think that's funny.
I saw some of the free Spud & Chloë patterns knit up for the charity knitting. The ladies at the end are holding the Heart on a String Hat and I saw a Watermelon hat, too. That's wonderful to see as I love the charity knitting.
The woman on the right loved the reversibles. She was very sweet.
Toy inspectors were everywhere. I hope I passed the test.The woman on the end is another Susan B. with a Forbes on the end. She makes sock blanks and they are really neat and intriguing. She is selling as a vendor at the Madison Knitters Guild Knit-In (the Mason-Dixon ladies will be the guest speakers) this weekend. I wish I could attend but I will be in NYC.
Pat, the woman on the right with the name tag was so fun to meet. She actually won 2 prizes, one from the guild and one from me! It was her lucky night. She was fun and had lots of good stories. I could tell she loves her knitting.
The hats were a huge hit!
The books were going, going, gone.
I loved this photo TC took. Now my friends are waiting to be packed up to head home.
Please Sir, can I have some more? (Lame I know but it's all I can think of when I see this photo:)
TC took this shot of my husband. He is an awesome supporter. Couldn't do any of this without him. Big love.
I don't know who took this photo but that TC is a cute little thing. Loved having her around.
My forever buddy.
