Knitting Night at my House

Our very small knit group usually meets at the local Panera Bread for knitting, but we decided to mix it up and meet at my house. It was just me and Sandy (Sheila couldn't make it> and so it was the Knitting Duo in action!

We chatted a lot and watched Night at the Museum while working on our socks. We each made a snack, and would you believe we both made cream cheese based dips? Hers was a dip for apples and mine was Hawaiian Spread for crackers. Sandy ate her first Triscuit and didn't like the texture so I pulled out some Club crackers which were more to her liking.

We watched Sunrise Earth....

At one point, there was nothing on TV and we tried to knit to Sunrise Earth on Discovery HD, but it was boring so we switched to the music channels that are included on my cable system (it's like radio on the TV). It got real hot so John was nice enough to turn on the fan.

Here is Sandy pretending to knit for the camera (we really didn't do a lot of knitting, but we usually don't, we spend more time chatting).

Even Buster got in on the knitting....checking out Sandy's yarn that we wound and even trying to knit some on her blanket! HAHA!

Later in the evening we ordered Chinese food and got on Skype (my Skype name is Purlygirl75) with several new friends (Kat, Marly, Shannon, Teri, and Natasha). At one point the videophone (vp) rang so John tried to chat on the vp while we were on Skype, but there was too much going on!

A lot was going on...

All in all we had a great time. Next time we have a knit night at someone's house, it will be Sandy's turn! And hopefully by then she will have downloaded Skype!

Love that you got the dog involved as well. I'm not sure how my dogs would take to that, but I might have to give it a try. Usually my smaller dog just end up laying all over my knitting and/or yarn.
