Knitzilla's first birthday

The Knitzilla! birthday party was a smashing success. About 31 people came, there was live music by Garner Knudson of Piper Downs, and a hellafine raffle, if I do say so myself.

The knitters were all outraged that I didn't "get" anything in the raffle. I tried to explain that ethically, you can't set up a whole fabulous prize scheme, then benefit from it. It's just not right.

Well, I did take a free tape measure from Unwind that Krista arranged, and a set of clippers donated by Baumgarten's, both arranged to thank charity knitters... but the total value was about $5 for the two items, and I think I've done enough charity knitting this year to cover that.

Anyway, lest I be horrifyingly shortchanged, an impromptu dramatic presentation of a check was made so I could buy my own Jordana Paige knitter's messenger bag, which is fabulous.

It was very sweet, and very touching.
