A bunch of the BobaKnitters got together on Saturday to knit felted Cala Lilies for Hannah's wedding bouquet. I didn't knit the feltable yarn, obviously, because of the wooly factor. I am working on something for her though, have no fear. Anabel even brought Boba!
Margit hosted and weighed out the lily yarn to the gram. Cindy took many photos with Margit's camera (picured below with her blogless daughter, Ari).
Lisa knit and knit on her i-cord stem, wondering what she had gotten herself into. Kristi reminded us regularly that all mistakes will be forgiven once it is felted. Freecia may have finished finished first (or was it Jeni?). And Anabel brought the Boba and was the only one knitting hers on circular needles instead of double points.
Hannah enjoyed the Boba and knit on a lily herself.
Jeni finished first (or was it Freecia?) and, more importantly, brought champagne!
The lilies looked very limp before felting, as pre-felted items usually do. Kristi modelled them anyway, with her very own version of the Cookie Crazy Face ™.
It was quite a fun day! And you can check out the gorgeous finished product drying on Margit's post.
