Showered with Goodies!

This Sunday the Spiders threw a fabulous baby shower for me and Gleek at Red Bamboo! We were treated to gifts and snacks and delicious cake and the mimosas (and ginger ale) were flowing freely. Just take a look at all the amazing knitting…



Blankees and soakers and burp cloths and wash cloths and bibs (go Gryffindor!) and the cutest baby booties I’ve ever seen in my entire life! Not only that, but I got plenty of washcloths and onesies and a very sporty changing pad, so I’m much more prepared and also perhaps in contention for a best-dressed baby award! It was an amazing shower - thank you all SO MUCH!!

One more shot of those booties…



Receiving all these wonderful goodies really inspired me to keep up with my baby knitting for others - hopefully I'll be able to unveil more of those secret projects soon!

I'm sorry I couldn't be there, but I'm glad you liked the Gryffindor bib. Those booties are too cute!

Those look like the LMKG angora booties, yes?

I've seen pics of the festivities on a coupe Spider blogs--you guys are so lucky to have such an awesome gang of knitters to hang out with!

glad you had a good time and liked your gifts. and i'm especially glad you like the booties since (shameless self-promotion alert!) they were from me. :)

they're so soft and fuzzy. i could pet them all day. why even bother putting them on a baby. they're not even gonna appreciate the rabbit-y goodness that is angora, ya know? :)

I'm so sorry I couldn't be there to celebrate with you all! And also that I didn't get my contributions to NYC in time for the shower. Could you email me your address, Beth? (And then watch your mail next week!)w
