On Thursday night, I was joined at my knitting guild meeting by not one but two of the knitterati. MK Carroll is in town visiting a friend who happens to live about 10 blocks from me, so I picked her up and took her with me (even though she was admittedly skeptical of how much fun a knitting guild meeting would be...). Once there, we met up with blogless Donna, Amanda and Katrina. After the meeting got going, who should sneak in the back but Marnie MacLean who just recently moved to Portland! Here are the cool knitting cats:
From left to right, we have Katrina, Marnie (modeling her uber-cool Crime of Fashion scarf, which I made her put on despite her protestations that it didn't match), Amanda, MK and Donna. Needless to say, we had a very good time...
I really should be doing sock updates today, since I'm spending tomorrow morning at Oregon Flock & Fiber trying to finish the Socks of Doom and the afternoon at my Mama Discussion Group, but I just don't feel like it. Y'all might have to wait until Monday, but I will get to them. There are some good ones! To make up for my slackerness, I'll leave you with these pics of a little goodness that arrived in my mailbox today. This is my first skein from Mama-E's Fall Sock Club. Oh, my! If only you could eat yarn...but then it would be gone, and I'm quite happy that I can keep this around and pet it. I got so excited when I opened it and held it up for Bill to see - his comment? "Yup, looks like yarn."
