Knit Slippers On Saturday

Now, there's the power of blogging...I just posted about Amanda's great red slippers, knit by Miruh, and Roisin instantly added this comment:

Maria and I will start knitting these during Sat morning class 11-1pm this week Nov 29th. Join us?? 4 - 2 hr classes $60.

New Yarn

This lovely yarn was New in Stock last week...and I thought I had done a post on its arrival, but, no-oo-o. So, here you go, new to GBOW, Noro Taiyo yarns. Gorgeous colour.

Slippers For Amanda

A little while ago we showed you the bootie slippers Miruh was knitting for her daughter. Well, here's Amanda's happy feet. A perfect fit and she loves them, Miruh reported. It's all good.

Teeny, Tiny Socks

Alisha is knitting teeny tiny socks for a newborn-to-be.  These are the smallest socks Roisin has ever facilitated the knitting of.  We are all curious how they'll turn out.  Watch this spot!

Socks By Edward, Sweater By Miruh

Edward (of the Edward-twist fame, and you have to be an insider sockista, or a reader of this blog to know this) modeling a sweater knit by Miruh and working on his socks, third pair, I believe.  He's at the grafting stage, so his sister will be wearing them this winter. Well, for sure....he's knitting so fast, his hand is a blur.

Hilary's Socks

Hilary's first pair of socks is being knit on top of her 'bump'.  We had to get a bump photo because she's expecting her baby before mid-December. Soon!  Looking forward to watching her grow her socks and her bump.

A Real Baby Surprise Jacket

Despite inadvertently having knitted a couple of adult-sized Baby Surprise Jackets (here) it looks like Shirley's grandson will get a BSJ that fits HIM this Christmas.  Love it!  It's proof that making the same pattern over and over again improves your speed and knitting skills--not to mention the choice of yarns.

Loopy Loungers

The Loopy Lounge in full swing -- although they all look like they're concentrating, doesn't it?  Carola must have cracked the whip.

And here is Kathleen modeling her not-quite finished hat knit with...some kind of yarn. Yes, that's it. Some kind of yarn. Pink. Looks like she's having fun, which is what happens when you come knit with us in the Loopy Lounge.

Clever Maria

John modelling his newest hat knit by very clever knitter, Maria.  This is knit in sideways using short-rows.  It looks like crochet...but it's NOT!  Yarn is one of Maria's faves, Chunky Marble.

And Maria's great long scarf, knit with 100% bamboo = no itch.  The photo doesn't do scarf justice.  We love her choice of stitch for this yarn.

PowTown Cutie

Mary's granddaughter looking soooo cute in a PowTown Toque knit by Dianne.  Her scarf is knit with Sirdar Escape.  She loves her woollies!
