Crazy idea

Holidays are supposed to be fun, right? , Knitting , Of course I can knit that before Christmas. , Sanity is overrated. , Thank goodness for friends. , The blog people , Things I'm Doing , You know you knit too much when...

Plans are in the works (as of about two minutes ago, honestly) for Kat's First Annual Pre-Holiday Knitting Slumber Party. The idea is that we all (er, most of us) go crazy with the holiday knitting, so why not make a party out of it? If you're going to be pulling knitting all-nighters, wouldn't it be better with friends? The basic idea is to take just a quick break from family and holiday craziness in early to mid-December and have a night of knitting, talking, watching movies, and eating junk food (or healthy food if you prefer).

If you're in the area (southern NH, but there's no reason you couldn't drive here from MA or even the greater New England area), would you be interested? (I can't guarantee a completely open invitation because my apartment isn't huge, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.) If you're not in the area, do you have any suggestions for such a party? And would you be interested in some sort of virtual component (a chat, or all picking a night and blogging about it, or something)? I'm still at the brainstorming stage here, so let me know any thoughts/ideas.

I've thought that that would be very cool around WEBS. It's kinda between NY and Boston (and the rest of us) and there's so. much. yarn.

Sounds like a great idea. Last year at Circles Allison hosted a late night finishing/seaming party, it would be great to have the mid-December knitting party so I would have something to finish.

Sounds fun, Kat. Especially if this means I get to eat cookies and pass out in a pile of wool. Thanks again for the yarn. I just cast on and intend to spend tomorrow playing with it.
