Fiber, Friendship, Food, Fun, Fantasic!

The Yarn Lady in Laguna Hills hosted a Pajama Party...all things knitting from 6:00 pm to midnight.
I went with my friend Sharlene and it was just so fun.
There was food, knitting, games, knitting, prizes, knitting, desserts (amazing), knitting, knitting help, knitting, personal storytime, knitting, and above all ... Fun, friendly knitters.
Just look at the photos. I ate it up.
I won the Vicki Howell knitting book during the knitting question game, I also won a set of knitting needles, the other was just a gift from the evening, I started and finished knitting the red collar pictured in the book, (it is next to the book but it is a bit dark)
Just look at all of those happy knitters.
What a great night... Fiber, Friendship, Food and Fun.... eat it up...yum!

What...that old thing....

Sometimes one must just sit. Sit and play with yarn in simple ways. I have been making mind numbingly simple objects for the last 2 months, busy cranking out holiday gifts, requested work and 'boutique' items. Oh how I long for a zap of creative electricity to fire me up again. I look at this pillow, this 3 year old pillow and remember those fevered nights of knitting and felting, the fire my fingers burned with to create some new sculpture. I suppose this cold (relatively as this is Southern California) winter is calling me to creatively hibernate. Food for thought....I need a snack...where is my stash!
