Way back in January Amy had a party for Twin Cities knitters and knitbloggers. I finally put together a post about it.
Sadly for me, I was late getting to the party. Although there was lots of yummy food and drink sitting about, the knitters had finished in the eating arena and had moved to the knitting arena by the time I got there. So I joined them and skipped most of the food, much to my eternal chagrin (although anyone who has seen me knows that I am in no danger of starving to death). I know it was all delicious, Amy, as I fully expected it to be, having drooled over your Friday Food posts for months.
Here is Amy handing out prizes to everyone. Prizes that included Deb's hand-dyed yarn, mmmmm...
From the left, above, we have Connie, Christy (
the name of whose blog escapes me at the moment; Christy, sing out in the comments if you are there), and Deb. I think that is Marge whose face is hidden by the prize bag Amy is waving about. At the extreme right you can see a tiny bit of the lovely purple Shetland Triangle worn by Miss T. She insisted that day that her face not be included in any pictures, and I thought I had obliged her when snapping photos. But when I was gathering the photos for this post I found that her lovely face had mysteriously appeared. So I cropped it out. Your secret identity is safe with me, m'dear :)
On the other side of the room are more knitters -- blogless (I think) Deepa, Anne, and Heidi on the couch; Renee, in the red sweater, has a knitting and movie review blog that is a lot of fun. Be sure to check it out.
Most of the rest of the group:
I think that's Guinifer at the bottom with her glasses on top of her head. Shame on me, I didn't get the names (or I have forgotten them, even worse) of the others, even though I chatted with several of them.
The best part of the party, though, was finally getting to meet my new BFF Deb.
Thanks, Amy! Same time next year?

In other catching up news, last Friday night Deb and I (and her daughter Kathryn-who-spells-her-name-like-me) had dinner with Cathy-Cate and The Gothlet, who were in the Twin Cities for the Knit-Out and some family get-togethers. I never expected that knitblogging would so dramatically increase my social life :)
