Party Time!!

First of all - an announcement - TODAY is the last day to sign up for Knit Witch Clubs until July. The sign-ups for Club Dragon Witch are open until January 7th. I just got word of the pattern that Gryphon is working on for the club - it sounds great!

This past Sunday we had the pleasure of heading to Atlanta to go visit our good friend Jane and a few other knitters. Jane and Wayne actually graduated from high school together but we never realized it until one day Wayne got some kind of email about a high school reunion and I happened to notice that Jane's email address was on the list! I went to the same high school also actually, just 22 years later. :)

The day started by us visiting my mom, who actually lives REALLY close to Jane. That was fun, we got to hang out with her and have a glass of wine (or 3) and have some laughs and conversations. After that, we headed a little further into Decatur for this:

Everyone had a great time. We all brought a gift, the gift got a number attached to it and then we all drew numbers to see which gift we got. My gift was pretty hilarious. It started out as this big box.

But I just kept unwrapping......

And unwrapping.........

Until finally, I got THIS

A gift certificate to Knitch - yay!! So now I have two so I forsee a visit to my LYS (even though it is in Atlanta) to spend some gift certificate money!

This is me and Hockeymom

Then Chickengoddess joined in the fun.

Wayne had fun with one of the cutest babies I have ever seen - baby Pixie Purls! (Doesn't Wayne look so cute with a baby?!?!)

Katey (Snarky Katey) and Allen (of Numma Numma) were there too.

I think Katey even liked the gift I brought that was picked up by Meg.

A good time was had by all - thanks Jane, Claudia and Alma!!!

It was so much fun! Thanks for coming, and for taking pictures. Now I can point people your way, since I was such a slacker and didn't even touch my camera.
