On Saturday The Knitting Nest celebrated it's one year anniversary. The party was originally scheduled for the weekend I was in California, but they postponed because of Hurricane Ike. The good news was that I got to attend.
There was still plenty of cake when I got there...
and there were roses...
...and there were Abby and Staci. In fact, I think it was my first time ever meeting Staci in person, not just hearing about her or commenting on her blog. I got a chance to ask her about the class I'm taking this week.
I also ran into Suna and Katie, who I normally see at Bluebonnet.
I also ran into Jan. She worked with my Dad and has been a family friend for a long time. She didn't want to be photographed, but I did get a picture of her yarn. She bought four skeins of Malabrigo Lace in Emerald for her Pi Shawl. We looked up the yardage on Ravelry, and decided four skeins was enough. (There were only four skeins left of that color. I'm convinced they were waiting for her.) I helped her wind them.
Speaking of winding, I got a chance to wind my homespun and measure it out.
You can see all my pictures from Saturday here.
