We are all so happy

Everyone was hitting their stride yesterday. There were high 5's all around.
The best of the morning was straightening out Diane and her magic loop sock. She had been knitting back forth on the same side of the sock. It just wasn't looking like a sock. Michelle stepped in and explained how she maneuvered the cable - that did it. Now it looks like a sock and Diane is well on her way. The yarn is Artyarns Supermerino.
Lois is onto her 3rd skein of Noro Silk Garden. She is totally all about the yarn and the "never ending saga of what to keep making".
For those of you following Linda and her Wallaby's, she completed the rib AND progressed onto the increases and into the body of the sweater without assistance. She was positively bursting with pride. Turns out that she'll be having the whole family over for Thanksgiving, so the last 2 Wallaby's must be done in time. Major photo shoot opportunity with all the grandchildren wearing their Wallaby's. (Note: the computer is not doing the red (Plymouth Encore) justice. The computer couldn't handle it.)
Michelle swatched for #168 QK Minnowknits Garter Cardi in Mission Falls cotton.
Michelle finished crocheting the "crocheted notions bags" that's she's giving her nieces this year. (Pattern is a free ravelry download.)
She knit them in Impulso yarn and chose Moving Mud buttons to match.
The combinations were fantastic. The buttons made a simple bag lovely. I love how confident Michelle has become with crochet since taking the crocheted sampler blanket class.
Michelle finished her Multidirectional scarf in Plymouth Kudo yarn. She used 2 skeins. This is a keeper, it really shows off the multidirectional pattern to it's best.
