Saturday lunch was the monthly meetup of the Peninsula and Bayside Rav girls, aka Stitch'n'Bitch. I must admit, I don't like that name, but I always provide the "bitching" of the meet, as I can't talk to people, eat, drink and knit at the same time. Well, I probably could, but it would go horribly wrong. So I invariably just go along and chew people's ears off. I don't know how people can knit socks and chat.
I do love knitting, but I'd never call myself a knitter. Regular followers of this blog (all 3 of you!) would recall my various posts about starting knitting projects, but note, you'll never see a post about a finished knitting project. Knitting for me is interesting and challenging, and one reason I love going to the knitting meet ups is to see other people's projects and marvel at their talent. And there was a whole lot of sock goodness on Saturday, so here's some pics for your entertainment:

Rachael's sock in progress. That knitted sleeve is a cardigan she made herself too.

Kylie's latest socks, blogged here.

Katie and Kylie's sexy socks.

No knitting for me though, I'm still embroidering away... piccy of finished pressie to come soon.

When I saw the patterns of the other knitters, I thought they can't concentrate on talking at the same time. The orange socks look lovely and demanding.
