Block of the Month Madness!

Our first Block of the Month First Friday was a smashing success! We had over thirty intrepid knitters show up and start their afghans with the thrilling Block #1, the Popcorn Stitch! I meant to take a picture of everyone concentrating on their knitting, but I couldn't squeeze in upstairs. So I yelled up from downstairs that I was popping champagne, and suddenly there was a flock of knitters swarming about.

There was imbibing:

There was chatting:

There was chatting and choosing yarn for the next block:

And there was some serious shopping:

I swear to you that these folks all knit for a long time that night. But they embraced the break too!

So there you have it: knitting plus drinking plus chatting plus shopping = a great time.

You can start the Block of the Month Afghan at any time by stopping by the store and picking up your first block's yarn and pattern. Our next First Friday, the exciting Block #2, is November 6 from 5-8pm.
