Who doesn't love a knitting playdate?

Not me! I LOVE a knitting playdate! Even more, I love having lots of them! I had two this week, in addition to my regular Thursday date with the Morris & Sons SnB group.

First up was brunch with Jen on Monday - of course, I forgot my camera, so no visual record of this one, but the company was grand and the eggs benedict was delicious!!

Then Tuesday with PoppyLee and NannaMarge (otherwise known as Fredastep and 1FunkyKnitWit), and a special guest appearance from KnitNess. Another lovely day with lots of knitting, and a very fancy lunch:
Some knitwear modelling (PoppyLee and his stylist!):
Ishbel had her first day out (competing with Poppy's butterfly):
And mini-cheesecakes and coffee for fancy dessert (look at the crystal serving ware!):
(you can read more about the cheesecakes here).

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE knitting playdates!

Play dates are good. You are spoiled being able to have so many of them now as a lady of leisure.

Ah, Ishbel. So pretty.

Are you kidding? I have been obsessing over 1Funkyknitwit's Cherry Necklette all week! Completely obsessing! Sounds like you are making the most of your time off. Such fun!

A knitting playdate - sounds like such fun. Makes work seem even more like work!

these are great photographs! thank you for sharing them with us. and i love the knit that Poppylee is wearing. he looks so cool and European. men in Canada very rarely wear knit scaves. :( i wish they would.

Aw, man! I want to come! And those mini-cheesecakes! Perfect - just the right amount of goo-stuff to crust. That's the way they should ALL be.

Sarah said...

Two of my favourite occupations: knitting and tea parties. Your sound and look incredibly fun and delicious. The knitted items look scrummy, too. Gorgous colours...

Caffeine Girl said...

Indeed, what is more fun? Love the Ishbel. Those colors are gorgeous!

I love, love, love your blog you make me laugh with all your crazy words.

Lots of fun, food a bit off knitting & a lot of laughs was had in great company so it doesn't get much better than that, so cheers to our play date with many more to come.
I CAN HARDLY WAIT!!

It looks like so much fun! The only problem is that now I am consumed with jealousy!

Ann said...

PrincessPea said...

It looks like such a fabulous day - I'm very jealous!

Alwen said...

I made sure to get pictures at my knitting playdate just for you! Otherwise I probably would have gone without the camera.
