RV Knitters & Spinners Xmas 2008

Another important event in Roanoke & Salem's knitting social scene...tonight was our annual party - and Dirty Santa gift exchange...

We're a pretty motley crew - look at us...chowing down on the goodies we all brought to share...

More of us! I am not identifying anyone. You may identify yourselves if you wish...
But mostly I want you to know that there was lots of good food, and there wasn't a soul who didn't partake at least a bit more than probably we should alcohol, but that suits me fine...

Did I mention gifts? We do a Dirty Santa...and sometimes it can really get pretty cut-throat as we threaten (who, ME?), swipe, hide....naw...not ME? (teehee)

Someone actually brought two gifts this year (hmm..I think she did that last year, too). At the end of Dirty Santa, we draw one number for the person who will win the extra gift and this year - it was ME - and this adorable crocheted snowman was my lucky gift - isn't he cute as a button?

Rae, my good friend and fellow Red Hatter, gave me this book...
She has raved about it and insists my first sweater must be a top-down...

And my Dirty Santa gift? really did come down to Rae swiping it from me, and then me having to swipe it back:
But no one was gonna take Catie's handspun from me.

Not no way, not no how...I'm so excited about this yarn...thank you, Catie - you do good work!

Merry Christmas, all y'all!

Catie's handspun is gorgeous and it sounds like y'all had a great time. :)

Yay...I'm not the only person who hasn't yet done an adult sweater (it's nice not being lonely). Have a great weekend.

Ooh, that yarn is gorgeous! I love the colors!! Where does Catie get her roving? (heh) And that book is a good one; I got it from the library, and need to see if I can find myself a copy.

Sounds like a great time! That snowman is cute, and the colors in the handspun are beautiful.

Great fun as usual! Such pressure for the lamb and two gifts! Although I like the 'tradition' of it all.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
