Thanks ladies for coming over here to knit. It makes it so much easier when you are doing snack not to have to pack it all up. If everyone is agreeable to it I would like to do it here on my week. Let me know if that's ok!
Ingrid, Ingrid, Ingrid....what can I say you are not a sock virgin anymore!!!! You did a great job on that sock. Then, to top it off you pulled out a sweater!!!!! I am in awe! I love that sweater and want to make one THIS WEEK LOL!!
I am looking forward to shopping with you tomorrow. I will have to line up some projects :)
Judi, I am proud of you for plugging away at that sock. It doesn't go quickly on those little needles. Thank you so much for taking the train house home to fix. You are a doll and it is greatly appreciated!!!! Make sure you get yourself to Ravelry. When you are there, look me up in the friends tab. My name is DawnK there. Yes, very original I know.
Kathleen, that yarn you showed me is scrumptious. I can almost close my eyes and see that blue yarn made into pillows on my couch!!!! Did your mom or sister get that for you? You have some fun projects ahead of you.
Dawnelle, I think the colors on the Clapotis are just beautiful!!! I want to watch you drop all those stitches :) :) . Your sock colors are so pretty and springy!! They will look lovely on your feet. Any time you need a photo shoot of them just let me know :)
Just an aside, Rich pitched in and helped with the dishes :) What a guy!
I am going to try to get my bunny stuffed and stitched tomorrow. I'll try to get a picture to post when I do. I caked my blue yarn so I'll be making one for Jack next.
Again, thanks for another fun night.

It's always nice getting together with friends and just relaxing, laughing, eating and oh yes, knitting.
Ingrid, thank you for the yummy food! Everything was very good. Thank you for hosting again. The bag you are knitting looks like it is almost done! I am glad you liked the green yarn. I was happy to pass it on! I hope to be able to go with Dawnelle to the Yarn Basket. Make your list :)
Dawnelle, I love the fetching in the Noro yarn. My goodness they are so pretty! You are making me want to make a pair...soon. I'm sure your friend will love them :)
Kathleen, I love your hat! The yarn you chose is so pretty!! I hope you take some pictures before you give the sweater away.
Judi, you are plugging away on that blanket. It will be done soon :) SO...did I hear right...you and Ingrid are knitting socks next week :) :) :)
Pam we missed you. I wanted to thank you for the gift certificate and show you what I bought at Adventures in Knitting. I hope to see you next week.
I'm glad to be done with the blanket. I'm sure I'll get the hat finished this weekend and then I'll start the Yoda Sweater.

Ingrid, thanks again for allowing us to use your home! You are always so gracious! It was good seeing you knit again. It seems like so long since we have all been together! Thank you also for the cute little sheep. It's adorable! The embroidered blanket looks so comfy and warm. The salad was very good. I love how "cool" it tasted! Nice and chilled. Just the way I like it.
Judi, whoda thought I'd leave before you LOL!!! The bag you made was just gorgeous. I think you might have a new calling. What do you think "sister" :) :) :) :) Thank you for the chicken. It was yummy. The sauce was tasty too!
Pam, the scarf is so beautiful!!! I love it. The colors are just divine!!! Thank you again for my gift certificate. There are several things I would like to get :) That rum cake was so tasty. A few ice cubes and diet coke would have been just like the old days with the Captain LOL!
Kathleen, I just loved those potatoes. I think Rich might actually eat those. Please share the recipe. Thank you also for the stitch markers. Not only are they great but the packaging was wonderful! The sheep ornament was so sweet! The stocking you made Ingrid was very cute. You did a terrific job on it. How festive!
Dawnelle I like those coasters. I think I may need to put them on my to do list. The way Kathleen "wore them" was just so pretty :) The mug made me smile...how cute! Thank you also for the tape measure. I adore it! I'm glad you liked the gifts. You were fun to "create" for.
Here is the link for the candy cane holders.
I hope I didn't leave anything out.
