We had a party! (Episode I)

July 05 2011 – thisisknit

We've got such a lot to tell you! In fact, we've got so much we want to cram in that we're going to take two posts to do it. Today we're going to share some memories of the party, and then on Friday we'll talk about the lovely new designs that we got previews of. On Wednesday, the loft looked like this: When we were setting up on Thursday, it looked like this: (That's Debbie Bliss on the left!) When seventy-odd lovely knitters, crocheters and designers had arrived, it looked like this: There were flowers: There was Prosecco served by charming barmen: There was new yarn: There were tantalising sample garments: There were small knitted characters: Best of all, wherever one looked, there were crocheters and knitters, working away, sharing patterns, chatting avidly.... That's Skippy along with Debbie in the last picture. He'd flown in from Chicago! There was, of course, cake, made specially by Marion and Dervla at the Pepperpot: We're so happy that so many of you were there, and we're so sorry that some of you couldn't make it. Thank you, all.

    I didn’t get to “meet” the cake until after it had been well and truly sliced up, so I missed the fact that The Pepperpot had gone to the trouble of copying the font in your logo. How awesome are they?!

    It was a most wonderful day. I think it is safe to say that today is the first day I haven’t felt like I needed to “recover” from all the fun!

    What did the ball of yarn grow up to be?

    Congratulations to all who worked so hard to make it such a lovely evening.
    I am only sorry that I didn’t make Carol’s and Aoibhe’s talks.
