Whoops! I made a scarf.

Tuesday was the most important Stitch 'n Bitch meeting of the semester. Meaning, of course, that we decided when we'd be meeting next semester. Due to a conflict on Thursday nights (rape defense class for a member. Seemed legit.) and a general desire to meet later in the week, next semester Stitch 'n Bitch is moving to Wednesday nights. Adjust your google calendars appropriately.

The Knit-In for this semester will be on Wednesday of finals week. So if you're not making studying use of your Reading Day, come knit with us! I can guarantee I'll be there from 10am-3pm but the fun could go on for much longer, so stop by. Especially if you live on campus and are trying to use up all your extra meals.

Here are the highlights from this week's meeting:

Kelsey worked diligently on her hat. 

Kat showed off her 1930s sewing machine. Yay estate sales! It's so...shiny! 

Kassie unfurled her scarf-in-progress. I'd like to thank my camera for sport mode. 

I know you've been waiting. It's time for the second installment of:

Things Not to Get Your Knitter

Item #2:  Anything with which you've included a project suggestion.

You know the gift. "I saw this yarn and thought of you! Wouldn't it make a great hat...for me?" You're tricky. Because it seems like a gift for the knitter but it's actually a gift for you! What you actually thought was, "What great yarn. I would love a had/scarf/sweater made out of this! And I know just the knitter-friend relationship to exploit." Shame on you. Shame! You should know the better tactic is to buy the knitter some yarn and then show up in a miserable state without hat/scarf/mittens every time you see the knitter. Perhaps he/she will take pity on you.
