Drunken knitters

I went to my first Drunken Knitters meeting. Lo and behold, half my dance troupe is there!

The night before I had gone to dance practice, and found out almost everyone knits or crochets. All is well in that dept. I start showing my troupe teacher and leader some australian patterns....and the instant "ooooh i want that one" started going.

I started the makings of a wonderful pawprint washcloth, since ive never up to this point actually followed a pattern. its slowly taking shape from the bottom of the paw up.

before i went to the meeting i went and picked up a wood drop spindle and some stitch counters at Romni wool (approximate location queen and bathurst)....they have their 'galaxy' plastic knitting needles on sale for 2$ each, so i picked up a bunch of sized i didnt have yet. I think i need a bigger needle roll.

i also have to get started on a few newborn caps since a few ladies i know of are expecting in june and in october.

look out world...next project is either a sweater or a pair of tube socks!

Today, Im off to help a friend of mine create her anime north suit of 'cait sith' from the game final fantasy VII

I plan on getting a photo storage thingy soon so i can get some pics of what im doing up and going so you can all see what im doing, and help critique my stuff.
