Central Virginia Girls meet & knit

...well, only three of us plus Judy's mom were there - so four - but it was still a very nice get-together! We met at the old Batesville Store
& had yummy coffee & treats. (the link is not a store link, but will give you a little history about the store & area). Here's a group photo - I'm wearing the not-really-a-ten-year-sweater:

We had "show & tell". Janice showed us the yummy Wollmeise yarn she just bought from a nice person on Ravelry -

I'm on a hunt for some, too, but can't find any except on E-bay. If any of you blog readers have access to Wollmeise Superwash Sockyarn, I'm interested in purchasing some. I can't seem to catch up with any using internet resources - it sells too quickly!

Here is Judy's project and her mom's wonderful beaded shawl - the first half has 2000+ beads. Yikes, that's a lot of stringing!!

Finally, here's the second panel of my project - the Shawl with cables by Linda Cyr.

It's an easy pattern, so I could knit, drink coffee, & eat my yummy muffin without messing up the pattern.
Despite our few numbers, we had a good time - I hope more CVG's can come to the next one!
