Knit-Inn 2010 Part II

One of the best things about a knit-in is the endless parade of handknits. I captured a few that caught my attention. Ellen's scarf while not complicated was beautiful and draped wonderfully. It is Phiaro from Knitscene Winter 2007/Spring 2008.



Elisa was there with her winning Mr. Spock sock monkey. She won the Knit Picks sock monkey contest and was steeking her Fair Isle vest that was the prize. I've been waiting for her to post the finished vest.




She's only been knitting for two years and her work is beautiful. I love fearless knitters.

My memory fails me but the photos don't. There was a knitter from Georgia who had a gorgeous Estonia shawl. She wouldn't let me photograph it on her. The nupps were worked separately while knitting using white against a green background.




I finished my lone project purchased at the Knit-Inn.
