Double knitting Wednesday

I'm really coming to like Wednesdays. First, it's knit-at-work day - with a small but lively group of knitters at the office, mostly beginners but all enthusiastic and creative. I worked on the Diamond Seed Baby Jacket, getting the first pattern repeat finished. I also dropped off at work today the re-shaped Fuzzy Stripey baby cardigan for Baby Jake. I made expansion panels for both side seams to accommodate Jake's extra belly. Looks like:

His mom was totally pleased and promised a report on the revised fit.

OK, but after work.. it's also Knitting Meetup night. We had about 15 knitters at Blue Rock Shoot tonight and lots of good conversational topics: yarn stock at Knitting Arts, the characters of some local yarn shops, cultural attitudes towards nudity in the home, grafting, and general show-and-tell.

Works in progress: DSBJ, Cindy (started the crochet on one sleeve), and a Swirl Ball which I'm totally in love with in china blue and lime green.

I really need to get to that Wednesday meet up one of these days. Glad the shoes issue is solved. Love, love, love those Spigas!

It was great to see you at Meetup on Wednesday night. I'm downloading the photos now so I'll email you once they're on my ftp site.
