Everybody Else’s Knitting

I want to don’t bore you with my rapid but visually unexciting progress with Bowie, so I thought I’d show you what everybody else at “The Guilty Knitters” is making. (Click the link to see why we are Guilty!!)

These ladies are unbelievably creative and prolific. The wonderful thing is that we all like knitting different styles of items – the variety is fabulous 🙂

I’m storming along with Steve’s Bowie – back front and one sleeve done. If I get my head down, I think I’ll make my deadline of his birthday – 9th May – I might need express post to get it to him though 😯

First Janie’s Gents socks with Lozenge Pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks. Janie has recently discovered the “Joy of Socks” and has become a hopeless sockaholic 😉

You need to see a close up of the pattern on these…

Our next sock obsessed knitter is Judie, experimenting with toe up

That yummy yarn is Socks that Rock, Watermelon Tourmaline. Judie insisted on showing us how well her sock fitted, right there in Starbucks!

Anita is making a “Claplette” (That’s a mini Clapotis ) as a gift using Sari Silk – making the dropped stitches run down the knitting is a bit of a swine with this yarn!

Jane has the beautifully coloured Rowan organic cotton to make Potpourri, from the Rowan book to accompany the yarn – how she is managing to do this pattern and gossip with the rest of us and drink coffee I don’t know!

Lastly Jeni – This is “Ladies Shrug” by Kay Jones – Jeni is the fastest, neatest crocheter I have seen…

Lastly as Jeni was getting up to leave, I insisted on snapping a pic for you of her gloves – made with opal sock yarn

Now you can see where my inspiration comes from – It’s like this every week – a constant parade of knitted and crocheted loveliness – heaven! 😀
