Knit blogger meet ups and marathon knitting

Several Fridays ago, I finally went to one of the weekly Spider meetups at the Point Cafe. Olga and Vanessa were in town from DC and the Bay Area, respectively. The meetup was a little overwhelming (lots of people to meet!), but fun. Olga was fresh off her Knitty debut and Vanessa had the most tempting of Habu yarn (something silky and mohair-y) that she was swatching. I also met Veronique and Melissa, both of whom I've been eager to meet for a while, as well as Cara, Virginia, Lisa, and Sandra . It was really nice to be among like-minded (read, obsessed) individuals. Here's the group of us who went to dinner after the meetup. Veronique has a similar picture on her blog where she swapped places with me:

In other news, the monster skein has been conquered and is now literally a shell of its former self:

This is the result of a solid weekend of knitting. My hands are quite sore, but one design is almost finished.

The meetup looks like fun! I was in NY a couple of weeks ago (only for a night) and wanted to check out the Point but didn't get a chance.

Now that is what I call SPEED KNITTING---you really MUST purchase those CRAFT GLOVES--I totally killed my hand on the last two projects I did and it's not fun. With all of the knitting you still have to do - PLEASE take care of your hands...Get a size that is tight for support, and If you own Welcome to The KNit Cafe book they have some good exercises to do....
