Sunday Meetup and Lunch

It was the Sunday meetup at the Tramway cafe today - there were about 14 of us, all knitting and chatting and eating and drinking. Thankfully the January rush is over so it was not as busy as it had been.
Now, what was everyone knitting - to my right was Lynette, who was knitting a bag to be felted in a lovely autumnal colours, Nan and Anne were next, and they were knitting a lovely green sweater (?), and a sparkly bag respectively. Karen had some beautiful yarn which was manufactured in 1941 (yep, it was 66 years old), and had knit a lovely cabled scarf. Fiona had finished her Hummingbird spiral socks, and they felt gorgeous (no heel was turned in the making of these socks due to the spiral design). Jennifer was on her second pair of socks in a bright self patterning yarn (Opal) . Gloria and Thea, apologies, I couldn't quite see what you had today. Evelyn was knitting a mohair sweater (I think it was Adriafil, in a lovely pink colourway). Maggie was knitting something in blue, next to Julia who was knitting a sweater in a bright orange Colinette yarn. Heather had her fabulous fairisle sweater,colinette hoodie and pink socks with her, and India had her Brooklyntweed design sweater in a lovely blue tweed yarn (along with those fabulous mittens, which she had safely secured with an i-cord!). Our Stephanie, blooming in pregnancy had her baby blanket in a lemon baby yarn, and a cardi in Sirdar Click . And me, I was knitting the Artesano waistcoat - socks were out but not a round was knitted. Phew! Didn't she do well!
Talking of socks - was very excited to discover I had won a prize in the quiz to celebrate the 100th blog post of Tigerliliths'. Its a lovely ball of Opal sock yarn in a limited colourway. Thank you Tigerlilith !
Have just discovered I have a bit of a green theme going on just now - see what you think .
The Rowan ribbon twist , top right is from my finished cardi - thank you Heather for your kind comment! The Debbie Bliss aran is leftover from some hat and mittens I knitted for our God-daughter, the Debbie Bliss chunky I got in a swap from Kathleen, and made a lovely scarf. The Artesano Alpaca is for some baby things - I've started so I'll finish before I post pictures.
The Shipwrecked is from K1 yarns , and is a WIP, hopefully to become a cushion cover very soon.
Nearly forgot - Karen is hoping to start a Knit-a-long for the Shetland Triangle from Scarf style - so I may just have to buy some more KidsilkHaze, or some other laceweight yarn, .....sigh!
Here's the question - should I choose green, or go for another theme ?

Knitting a (nother) slipover in Louisa Harding Grace (wool and silk mix).

Will add to other 3! I love them and wear them to death.

Lana Grossa Luxor, Freedom Spirit and Rowan Tapestry. Can't decide which one to use next, although there is a gorgeous orange-y Luxor. Hmm.

See ya.

Forgot - even if I did manage to send the last one about 50 times - going to bring the Rowan shade cards next Sunday meet.

Tried to add you to my blogroll but it saud there wasn't an RSS feed - do you have one?

Hey India,
Not sure about the RSS feed! Probably means I don't have one - see Kathleen as she has included me on her links .
