After a couple of potato balls (you'll just have to trust me on this) and scrumptious desserts at Porto's Bakery, we headed down the street to Unwind. It was my first time visiting this cute (and spacious) LYS in Burbank. At least, I think it was a pretty big space, but it was kind of hard to tell, since the place was packed! What a turn out! We met up with Maurene, Kat and her beautiful mom there, and I was so happy to see Jillian again!
This is what happens when 5 knitbloggers (3 Project 365ers) set their camera timers at the same time. Silliness!
It was just a really great evening, visiting with old friends, and meeting some new girls. I met Laura Birek, author of Picture Perfect Knits and designer of this amazing Obama sweater (Ravlink) and I especially loved chatting with Kelly and Dawn from Namaste. Now I know why I love their bags so much- those girls are awesome and such a blast!
Not so surprisingly, we didn't have time to knit, but an especially cute knitted item did make an appearance! We (Bean and I) were lucky enough to be gifted this super sweet hat from Amiee. Lookit!
Bean's very first knitted item! And it couldn't be more precious. Thank you so much, Amiee, for knitting this adorable hat- I love it to pieces and I can't wait to try it on Bean. :)
All in all, it was a completely wonderful evening. I look forward to doing it again soon, while we still have our MJ in town!
