Christmas Knitting Swap!!!!

On Sunday, our Tuesday night knitting group met up to finalize our Christmas in July swap! We basically ananonymously traded yarn, and then patterns and finally a finished projects. It was super clever and the most fun!

Our lovely host, Lea, made some incredible treats for us to eat while we sat and chatted before the big exchange. It was great to finally catch up with everyone after a soul crushing semester at a new school. I was so excited to see everyone!

Can you even stand how stinkin cute how cute Lea's house is? It looks like a yarn shop! Julia is pretty adorable too! Eventually, we got around to swapping gifts! Shawls for everyone!

My creation

There was even a guest appearance from an estranged West Coast knitter whom we all adore and miss!


After sharing our stories and making up for lost time, it was time to pack up our shawls and hit the road!


All in all, it was a great time with great friends that I'm so thankful to have in my life! You're all the greatest!

WOW! You make my house look 100 times better than it really is! Glad you had a great time.

Fun. I miss cold weather. The tropics are not conducive to knitting. What school are you at now?
