Always pretty stuff to see

The show and tell segment of the meeting continues to be one of the most popular parts of the evening. March was no different.

Andrea had lots to show, including a sweater and some hand mitts. In true creative knitterly form, she looked at a fingerless mitt and realized it would make a very good teddy bear dress. Hence, Andrea's hand mitt teddy bear dress. Notice in the back view, the thumb opening works very well for the tail. We all know that teddy bears can become a bit crabby when their tales are crunched up in uncomfortable clothing.

Debra worked up this lovely baby set. The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted, 2 skeins of Rainbow from Twisted Skeins in Clarkesville. The pattern is a free pattern from Jimmy Bean's website with Debra's own minor alterations (of course).

And Jeanel showed off this beautiful jacket. This was an old yarn from Needle Nook, a hand-dyed alpaca from her stash. And she says it isn't too warm over a light shirt or blouse, allowing her to wear it through three seasons.
