Utah Grrls Rock

Another great way to chase away the winter blues and blahs is to hang out with grrlfriends and PARTAH!  Tuesday we held the 9th Anniversary celebration of the SLC SnB! For nine years we've been chatting, arguing discussing, laughing, knitting, and celebrating together, and we plan on at least 9 (or 49) more!

While going through the pictures it became very apparent that I am not great at taking candid shots as I'm in too much of a hurry. However, the beautiful hand knits deserve a showing, so I'm posting what I have.

To keep the gifts a secret they are hidden inside of paper bags and our founder, Laurie, does a great job of tossing the bags around the room until everyone has a gift. (heads up!)

I was the fortunate recipient of Eileen's warm and cozy Shepherd's Wool mittens! They fit as if made for my hands! As coincidence would have it, Eileen received the gift I knit, 198 Yards of Heaven, made with Berroco Vintage. It was a fun, quick knit.

Larisa received Laurie's shawl and Laurie received a beautiful hat knit by Cheryl. Sadly my picture of Laurie wearing the hat did not turn out. Larisa may kill me for the picture of her with the shawl but, hopefully, this picture of her with Cheryl makes up for it.


Since this is my blog I'm going to share a bigger picture of the mittens, as I am very, very happy with my gift and my hands are nice and warm!

Thank you SnB Grrls for a wonderful night. Here's to many more!


This looks like so much fun. For some reason, my group of knitting homies always exchange small gifts that tend toward some new knitting doodad or something edible or cosmetic (there are a couple of soap/lotion makers in our group), but I am falling in love with the idea of knitted accessories!

What awesome things! You're so lucky to have the mittens, they're fabulous!

Oh this looks like fun. Congratulations--big anniversary next year!

The mittens are Spruce Tree Mittens. They were a lot of fun to knit.

Oh, what fun!! :) Those mittens are gorgeous, too.

Wonderful mittens!

Yeah, yeah, knitting. LOVE Larisa's hair!

You guys ate an awesome group, fun and talented, too!

Ok, seriously, I need to proof read my comments. I doubt you ate an awesome group!

What a great fun group of grrls you have! And, what a neat idea. I do love your mittens and happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!

You SO make me wish I lived in SLC and could stitch and bitch with y'all! What FUN!!!! And what a perfect way to beat the winter BLAHS! XOXOXO

What a fun night you all had! Alas, I was working. I've been following Larisa online for years and never knew she is part of SLC SnB.
cheers and here's to 49 more years!

What fun!

Here's to many more years of you all getting together! xo

What a lovely tradition. And kudos for 9 years!!
