Have you seen this photo*?
From the left: Wendy, me, Chris, and Susan. Virtually the same picture appeared over at The Rainey Sisters' blog yesterday. You will probably see it again on Sunday and/or Monday at a couple other blogs. Yes, we knitbloggers all handed our cameras over to an obliging fellow party-goer to memorialize us for The Blog(s).
Wendy came to Minneapolis for the opening of Radiant Knits: The Bohus Tradition at the American Swedish Institute and a long-time internet friend of hers had a party for her on Thursday night. I was thrilled to meet Wendy and am happy to report she is every bit as nice and friendly and entertaining in person as she in on her blog (as are Chris and Susan :-) ). It was a lovely party, complete with yummy food and drink, and held at the hostess's sophisticated loft in the warehouse district of Minneapolis.
The view of downtown through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Some of the non-knitting guests.
There was much chatting and laughing and munching and even some knitting. The hosts had a standard poodle who was perfectly groomed and perfectly behaved and perfectly charming. Meet Tasha!
They also had five (5!) ragdoll kitties, three of whom were too shy to join the party. But the other two got lots of petting and ear-scritches and seemed to enjoy themselves.
But don't tell Lucy.
Thank you, Catherine, for including me on your guest list, and thank you, Wendy, for coming to The Great Frozen North! Please come again!
