While I was designing Knit Night it brought to mind all of the great times I have had with my knit night friends. We have been together for about 7 years and even though some members have come and gone, the core group has remained constant. Our members differ in many ways; age, backgrounds, marital status, family dynamics, where we are in the different phases in life.
Our conversations will range from family issues, books we are reading, movies we've seen, world events and everything (and I do mean everything) in between. Our group has quite a few strong personalities and so our discussions are pretty lively. There are agreements and "friendly" disagreements. We are a mixed bag of tricks!
But what we ALL have in common is our love for the world of fiber. Anytime anyone buys a new skein of yarn or finds a new pattern it's show and tell time. If someone needs help with a technique or has a questions about the interpretation in a pattern, there is always someone in our group that can help. I love my knit night group!
Now here's the contest! How would you like to win a copy of Knit Night AND a skein of Bling (the yarn used for the design)? Lorajean of the Knitted Wit and I would love to hear about your knit night.
Do you have a knit night (day, or afternoon) group? I would love to here about yours. What is your favorite knit night memory? How did your group come to be? What do you talk about?
Leave your memories in the comment section below between now and Sunday midnight (pacific time) and we will choose 2 winners! First prize is a skein of Bling and a copy of the pattern, the runner up will receive the pattern! We will post the winners on Monday! Can't wait to hear all about you!

When I started designing things I knew I wanted to include something for my knit night friends. Being with these people is really great! Over the years we have become knotted together in many ways. Meeting each week, we share a bit about our lives, admire each others' knitting and laugh.....a whole lot. I love each and every one of them. And so I give you...
Knit Night is a one skein shawl with a pretty knotted stitch throughout the body,
a bit of lattice
It's the perfect project for that special single skein of luxury yarn in your stash and knits up very quickly.
Thank you knit night friends for being a special part of my life.
