Instead of a traditional bridal shower, I wanted an event that involved many of the women in my knitting life. So I had a knit-a-thon at our place. I invited my partners in yarn along with my other friends who knit! We used an email invitation highlighting our engagement announcement at The Point.
My mom provided the food including her always popular Swedish meatballs and a chicken coucous dish. For dessert, we had champagne with fresh strawberries!
Despite the terrible rain, we had a dozen women with yarn and needles in our living room trading tips and enjoying wine and cosmos, our house drink. My friend Amanda was a trooper having shlepped down from Boston! She even brought the requisite gag gift for this type of party–a pink knitted bag in the shape of a you-know-what!
