Great Minds/Knitters Think Alike

Some of you may have noticed that I have not yet made my "A" post for the ABC Along. Yes I know that today is the last day, but you see I was saving A for a very special day.

"A" is for ANNIVERSARY !
Today our Knitting Group celebrated our 1st anniversary. Exactly one year ago today we met for the first time. There were 8 of us that first night at Books A Million. There are still 6 from the original 8 and we added 3 more for a total of 9 of us. Today we gathered to knit, eat, and remember the past year. What a fun time! We each brought yarn and we made the Las Vegas or Casino scarves. We were rolling dice and flipping coins to determine our yarn and the stitch we would knit. Much hilarity and some cheating ensued.

Yarn and Cake ....what could be better. This is the yarn after we finished.

Group Photo Shoot! Modeling our loverly new scarves!

Each scarf is as unique and different as we each are. I think this is what makes our group so special. We are more, much more than a group of knitters that meet once a week. We are friends.
Good friends. And I love them all!!

Now....why did I title my post about great minds or knitters or bloggers even? thinking alike? Because when I got there today Liz asked me if I had done my "A" post. I answered "No I was saving it for today" and we both said "Anniversary". You see Liz and I currently are the only bloggers in the group and we both signed up for the ABC Along. I think we signed up hours apart...and only mentioned it to each other AFTER! So we did it again today. Please go by and see Liz and what she had to say about today.

Here is LIZ blogging me as I am blogging her. I know for sure that she takes the better picture. And I don't mean with the camera.

Thanks for stopping by for the letter A. Can't wait for B.

And you beat me to posting it. I probably won't have it up until tomorrow. It's quite funny, because I even took a picture of the cake and yarn, after. Hehe. I love it!

Would I be a complete dork if I said the scarves and cake look....


Yes. Yes I would. I just can't help myself.

Looks like a lot of fun over there. I have never heard of 'Las Vegas scarfs' (is one allowed to admit this?) but the concept is as simple as striking as pretty.
Thanks for posting at my blog. And yes, I am looking forward to having a knitting cafe in Reykjavik, so it is Iceland (with some pictures for you today). And if I am not mistaken, then US 1 equals 2,25 mm - excactly the size I am talking about ;-)
