But the big knitting highlight? KIPing! Bonne Marie always has a little blurb on her website of KIP day - and it's usually the 3rd Thursday of the month. Well, every time I go to Chi-town, it's NEVER the 3rd Thursday. I was a little nervous to go and crash their party - but I shouldn't have been. What fun gals!
Across the table from me - I found out that Corrine is writing a book (on the far right), Mary was just plain nice and Michelle! Look down lower in the post for a better picture of her awesome blanket!!
And then. Bonne Marie , the gal that left early (Sorry! Didn't catch your name!!!)and Trope. Trope's little baby boy (oh, yeah, and husband) were so sweet - but left before I whipped out the camera. Bonne Marie was really fun to talk to - and even took my teasing pretty well when I mentioned that the Cece pattern should at least go up to a Cece size! Ha. I ended up staying pretty late - and she walked me down the street and gave a mini-tour of W. Division street. Really, a great night.
Oh, and check out this blanket:
Michelle, you inspire me! This is the Modern Log Cabin Blanket from Mason Dixon Knits. I really liked it in the book - but seeing it up close - I may need to make it. But, it's a lot of garter stitch....
Thanks for showing an out of town knitter an awesome time!
