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!

    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!

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

  4. 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.
