Don't put off for tomorrow what you can do today, because if you enjoy it today, you can do it again tomorrow. (James A. Michener)
The Third Annual Knit in the Park was a success. It was mostly the regular Wednesday night gang and the Chix with Styx group. Carmen and her daughter, Jennifer, did drove up from Coconut Creek to join us. It's a shame that we didn't have more knitters, because the day was gorgeous. We sat in the shade of the pavilion, knitting and laughing as we enjoyed a slight breeze.
Let me tell you, knitters can cook! We had a really wonderful array of dishes to share for our potluck lunch. Mary brought pickle sandwiches, which I haven't had since I was a kid. (It sounds weird, but they are delicious.) I won't mention all the dishes, mostly because I don't want to leave anyone out by accident, but everything was great. And the margarita cupcakes were a favorite of everyone.
Adding the gift bags to the day's festivities was a great idea. It's always so nice to get a present. (We had everyone bring a gift bag, and they left with someone's else's offering.) This is definitely going to be a part of next year's Knit in the Park. We also had a give-away table and a Sale Your de-Stash.
Between the friendship, the knitting, the food, and the yarn enhancers - it was a really great day!
