Knitting by the Fire

After SEVERAL requests during the summer from fellow Renton Knitters from knit night, we FINALLY had our 'knitting by the fire' night!
It was fabulous! The Lucky Lurker members of the group were among the first to arrive and the conversation quickly went to "did you get your package" and "I got my package". Even the local Lucky Lurkers don't know when their packages are going to arrive and they are just and suprised as those around the world.

Mr Ken custom made our deck when we first moved in here and add the fantastic feature of a built in fire pit. The Renton Knitters had been asking for a long time about a night to come over and knit around the fire. Last night was that night!

I think pretty much everyone came (which is right around 18 regulars) and it was a full deck. There was so much delicious food, I went back and filled my plate with different items 2 different times!!! Yummy!!!

There was knitting, talking and s'more making. Not suprisingly for here in the Northwest, we did get some sprinkles that kept us mostly under cover, but the fire definitely kept us warm...or was that the hot totties? Either way it was a great time and I am ready to do it again!

I had a blast (and probably gained 293479324732947 pounds eating all that good food!)

A big thanks to Mr. Ken for his fire-tending and making sure all of us knitters stayed warm and dry!

Thank you SO much for hosting! It was a great time and Ken was super gracious for making us all comfortable (read: putting up with us!). :)
