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.

When seventy-odd lovely knitters, crocheters and designers had arrived, it looked like this:
There were flowers:
There was Prosecco served by charming barmen:

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.
