Wool And The Gang Know how to Party

WOOOHOOOOO!  We just had a party!

Some friends and I just got together on Leap Day to really make the most out of an extra day on the calendar.  Yes, we had a knitting party!  There really isn’t a better idea for February 29 than that, I believe.  Unless you get invited to Willy Wonka’s or a donut factory.

Somewhere out on the internet one day I stumbled onto Wool And The Gang’s website and noticed that they have a tab for Parties.  Well, I’m sure not one to miss something like that so giddee up.  http://www.woolandthegang.com/parties

You can sign up to host your own event and make some quick big needle and yarn projects that WATG have put together.  They send you tutorials to watch in case you are stuck on anything or even if you’ve never knit before.  Each project has different levels so if you think that a project might be too hard or too easy, well, there’s one for you right in the middle, my little Goldilocks.

So we picked the Snood project because we all really need cowls here because it is freezing, windy, and pretty terrible weather in Wisconsin right now.  But then it will be 50 degrees and then 2.  It’s kind of like a teenager.  Don’t tell my teenagers I wrote that.

Here’s what it looks like when you receive your box of goodies:

We all LOVED the needles in the kit.  Oh and the BEAUTIFUL yarn, Crazy Sexy Wool.  It was really Crazy.  AND Sexy.  And Wool.

Peggy finished first because she is crazy fast.  Not crazy…just really, really fast.

We really had a great time and hey, if any one wants to get together to party, well, I am right here.

Spending time with some super nice Girl Scouts

Today I was lucky enough to spend the evening with my two good friends introducing Girl Scouts to knitting and yarn!  It’s so fun to see people light up when they feel a really soft yarn, see a new project that they never knew could be neat, and see all of the beautiful colors.

We showed off how yarn becomes yarn, different size needles, different weights of yarn, different fibers, and many samples.

Then the girls got to give it a try and they did awesome!  They were knitting within 5 minutes.  Super great students!

I’m going to add a page now about how to connect with me for lessons and Knit ‘n Parties.

Thanks for letting me share my fiber joy, gals!
