Knitting, Eating,Friends,and Wii

My Columbia Beret is done. This is a free pattern by Sarah Pope and can be found on Ravelry.
I made it out of Knit Picks Swish yarn on US #7 16" circular needles and then size 5 dpn's. It is an easy, fast knit but I messed up one of the rounds. I will have another on the needles soon.



The model is My first born Grimm Witch of Jersey.


I added the berry button.


So I hear the first step is admitting you have a problem.
I am a wii addict!
I missed many hours of knitting because of this Animal Crossing game!
My little friend is Lupie and she lives in Knitting Town.
I know it's sad but I can't help it!


To make matters worst I got the Simms Castaways. I hope going back to work Monday will help.


What is a post without pictures of food.
The Chalk Dust Knitters met at Pat's house and first we ate lunch.


Then we had dessert! The Apple crumb and the cookies were homemade and awesome!



We did get to knit/crochet. Pat is working on another sweater for her granddaughter and check out Annette's beautiful scarf!


My first born is working on yet another BSJ.


My last born Pepper is making a beautiful basketweave scarf. You can see Crochet with me with the gift I gave the group. More pictures to come when the rest of the group gets their gifts.

When members are missing the meetings just aren't the same. Jackie,Maria,and Steph were greatly missed. The next meeting is Friday so there will be another post of lots of food and gift giving.

Haha about the wii addiction, my lot all played on the guitar hero thingy whilst i sat and knit amongst all the coking! Happy New Year :^)

That hat is beautiful! And it looks like the knitting get together was a lot of fun!

As for the Wii addiction, don't worry. You're not alone. I cannot even begin to tally the number of hours of my life that have been sacrificed to the Nintendo gods. And I'm still on outdated technology! I can't even imagine what would happen to my time if I got myself a Wii.

If I had not spent so many hours playing animal crossing on the wii this weekend I could have finished a sweater. So I know your pain. I haven't played sims though. I might have to check it out.

That is such a beautiful hat. I'll add it to my queue.

WOW! Your beret looks wonderful. And it is always good to knit - though I must admit that I don't have any experience with the wii
