Needle "Blockers" hard at it!

We had a lot of fun, the first Sunday of January, getting our yarn, pattern & communal enthusiasm for our project!

Almost everyone chose a different color for the fun Block of the Month 2013

Here's a look at "Double Diamond Ski Runs" - the January stitch pattern.

Knit 'n Ski - Steamboat Springs Jan 23-26, 2013

Ann Budd works with Sandy, Kim & Deborah on our mini-sweaters.

We were 15 in our class & learned SO much about finishing sweaters & getting them to fit!

So much fun to learn with other knitters from all over our continent.

Action shot of Ann

Ann was able to get all 15 of us to complete our sweaters!

Here's mine (Ann K) - pretty darned cute & we learned so many details that I will be passing along to those interested.

Peggy Sue's shawlette

Not exactly sure how this photo was snapped - were mirrors involved? Anyway, take a look @ Peggy Sue's shawlette with Mirasol Nuna & Jan's Handpaint Alpaca (a locally produced yarn). Gorgeous colors - fantastic stitchin'!

Mountain Colors Moguls Scarf

While I was photographing, I snapped one of my newly completed Mountain Colors' Moguls scarf, knit on the bias. Just one hank makes this super-easy neck-warmer-upper (has anyone else noticed how c-o-l-d it's been the past few days?)

Close Cables Cowl

 As much fun as this was to knit, it did NOT do the trick. "My" Broncos did not advance in the NFL playoffs. Very toasty & a great use of Gudy's Think & Think yarn (some appears in the background on the ladder)
