|WeHo SnB, Second Saturdays, 10 am to Noon|
Saturday was a very yarny day for me. I met up with our once-a-month-Saturday WeHo Stitch 'n Bitch at the Original Farmers Market at 10am. I like this group! Many of the Thursday night regulars join us when they can, but usually the Saturday group is a completely different crowd. There were about six or seven of us there last Saturday. I photographed everyone's projects in process:
|Meri is almost done with this shawl|
|Jean is working on a slipover|
|We meet in the upstairs dining area at The F. Market|
|Zoe's Coral Shawl is dreamy|
|Vickie just started a cotton market bag|
|Suzette knit a darling iPhone case|
After a few errands and lunch, my next yarny Saturday stop was The Coffee Bean in Santa Monica on Ocean Park Boulevard. This group used to meet at the Fairview Branch Library in SM, but we've switched to The Bean. We had a lot of discussion about a new name for our group. The Fairview Knitters just will NOT do any longer. After much conversation, the name Ocean Park Fiber Artists was settled on.
Considering we practice knitting, crochet, weaving and spinning, we thought it would be good to generalize our skills into the term "fiber art." Check our Ravelry thread for all of the other suggestions!
Here are some of the projects that the OP Fiber Artists are working on:
|In addition to knitting, Ana creates beautiful shawl pins|
|Karen is crocheting a colorful cat stuffed toy|
|Sherry's Noro Sock Yarn Shawl|
|Barbara's Tunisian Crochet Cardigan|
|Bebe's Windsock Scarf|
|Jamie just started a new shawl|
|Lauren is working on a series of knitted white lace squares|
I LOVE my knitting groups! They're so inspirational.
