Knitters

We had a party last night to say good bye to one of our Boba knitters. Kristi is moving to Boulder next week, we will all miss her. But Boulder is a great town and I think she will love it there. Maybe I'm biased since I'm from Colorado and lived near there for 10 years, but I don't think so. We had a pot luck, everyone brought something and tried to make it relate to knitting some how.

Spinnity (Mary) was gracious enough to share her house with all of us, the night before she was leaving for a trip! How great is that?







Everyone was so creative in the food they brought, I have some pictures of it, but I didn't get a picture of Jeni's pizza. She made it in the shape of a vest, a fair isle vest! With olives, basil and sun dried tomatoes for the pattern. So cute! There was a back up vest as well, plain stockinette, but still yummy! Of course there are pictures. Abigail's knitting ball eggs and the cute alpaca bread rolls.










There was a sheep pinata, filled with Kristi's favorite candies and some squishy sheep. Hannah whacked the crap out of it in one swing, scaring small children and pissing off the slightly older ones who had hoped for another whack. She was supposed to distract and get the pinata going so she could run in and change.


































Change to what? A sheep stripper of course! Cookie came up with the idea there should be a sheep stripper for this shin dig, so I made a costume and Hannah was forced to wear it. She stuffed the squishy sheep down the costume and ran around and then ripped it open so all the sheep flew out. I laughed too much to take many photos, but I do have the after shots.














We all had dinner and sat around and knitted and feted Kristi and Andy with gifts, including plane tickets so they can come back and see us.

A very fun party indeed, too bad it was for a going away.

Go mad sewing skillz! Now we just have to think of more excuses for Hannah to keep wearing the sheep costume.

I'm glad you got pictures of the food because I didn't. I was too hungry to photograph!

They teach their distributors to hand out business cards, flyers, and to hand out their magazine to all potential prospects.
