2013 Knitting Meet-up – March

Yesterday morning I spent the morning at Ovelha Negra with Joana. I couldn’t resist the lovely Malabrigo Sock and Lace that had recently come into the store, and I came away with Persia, Rayon Vert and Abril in Sock and two shades of blues in Lace (I didn’t memorize the name, nor did I take photos).

I also bought some Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace for a Test Knit (yes, another one, I’m addicted) that I signed up for. This time it’s for Tincanknits via the Free Pattern Testers Group on Ravelry. I choose a nice light sea green colour (44025).

I managed to do several rows while still at the shop before I stopped for lunch and then headed down to the now usual locale of Confeitaria Ateneia for the March Knitting Meet-up. We had another enjoyable afternoon, which lasted until around 19.oo again. Most of the usual crowd showed up and we had a couple of new faces.

Filomena showed up with her new sock yarn, Yarn Adventures Sock, in these four colours, the top two went home with me, I wasn’t able to resist. I already have a project in mind, if only I had more hours to knit, then I could get a lot more projects finished.

Fernanda was busy on her Wedgewood by Stephen West using Noro Kureyon Sock and Malabrigo Sock

Marta was in the middle of making a cardigan in Rowan Felted Tweed, she’s actually using the same dark green that I’m using in my Kex Blanket (which also made a short appearance at the meet-up, I just didn’t take any photos).

Fernanda had finished her version of Metalouse my Stephen West which she’d been working on during last month’s meet-up. She used Noro Kureyon Sock and Dona Maria, it came out super soft.

These lovely cuffs were a gift from our friend Batixa from Lisboa for Fernanda, I think almost everyone tried them on, we all admired them in any case.

Here is Filomena working on an Aestlight shawl using her Yarn Adventures Classic in various shades.
