And now for the Thursday Knit Group last night. We all sat around and stitched, bitched, and ate really good food. The banana cream pie was to die for, I might add (Thanks, Chris!)
I was asked to bring in one of DBF and mine's dinosaur eggs to show the group. Here's Zabet(from the anticraft.com) holding a 68 million year old egg from China. It was a real hit with the group. We're knitters and we're geeks!
We had a canine companion most of the night as well. He performed all kinds of tricks for us and made me once again want a puppy.
We had lots of space, so we all spread out and knit away.
And Kim even got a chance to come to her first SnB evening gathering. She got to meet all the people she had emailed from the listserve and stitched away.
DBF won a poker tournament last night too, so all in all I think it was a good evening. I'm sleepy today from getting to bed late for me on a weekday, but it was a good time. Tonight DBF and I are going to a dinner theater where there will be country food and a musical called Phantom of the Grand Old Oprey. Should be fun.
Oh, and I started to spin again last night. Kim picked me up some roving from her LYS and Renee gave me a new top whorl drop spindle that she had an extra of lying around the house. I'm not a good spinner, but I did notice that I'm a heck of a lot better than when I first attempted to spin. My first attempt is a blob sitting on my desk and my second attempt is a woolen creature that resides at Kim's house. She is still saying she's going to put ears and eyes on it and make it into a yarn bunny. I don't know what I'm going to make with the yarn I'm spinning now. I'm thinking a scarf might not be bad. I'm only spinning 16 ounces of roving, so it's not that much.
Well, time to get to work.
