The Magical Mystery Knitting Party is led by an adorable woman named Kate Freeman who also works at Article Pract. You show up to the class with the required yarn & supplies and Kate leads you through the mystery project while the students guess what the finished object will be.
Síle also serves a delicious light dinner and wine and fabulous home made shortbread (if I had been left alone I would have snarfed the entire plate). In the past they've made wine bottle carriers, Easter baskets, needle pin cushions and last night we made:
"Just make sure you get my good side"
No cats were harmed in the photographing of the cat neck cozy.
In other news chez Cpurl, I owe a big thank you to Disco for the lovely yarn I won in a prize draw (drawn by some very cute boys)
It's a very soft ball of Zitron Unikat 100% Merino wool in a charcoal to light grey colorway. Any suggestions? A beret? another Capitan?
I think I'll make another hat for the Sea Socks cruise. Disco, how did you know my warm coat has a grey lining? Psychic, you!
Finally, we had a bit of trauma around here last week. Seems Cary got locked in my bedroom closet all day last Tuesday and made a valiant effort to claw his way out. Fortunately, he's just fine.
And he was kind enough to give me a head start on replacing the carpet (although I hadn't planned on doing it just yet).
If it's still March 29 in your part of the world, you might want to knit by candlelight tonight in support of http://www.earthhour.org/. (I probably won't attempt lace however.)
