Since Halloween is next week, many people are celebrating early with costume parties this weekend.
I went to a costume party last night at the WeHo Stitch 'n Bitch. Our group of knitters and crocheters had a grand time! This year's theme was "Haunting Britain," just in case we didn’t get enough of the British Jubilee, the Olympics, the Royal Wedding, Downton Abbey or Prince Harry’s full Monty. There was a special "Haunting Britain" costume category where anything British was considered, so many of us wore costumes from Britain’s rich history or pop culture. The other categories were "The Most Original Costume" and "The Best Use of Yarn" Costume. We had fabulous prizes, treats and tons o' fun. Click this link to see our photos.
Many thanks to Natalie for organizing the fun, decorating and knitting the cutest bat prizes! Thanks also to Brenda B., Lynne and ME for prize donations. Most of all, thanks to Mr. Larry for photographing the event!
Hope you have a grand Halloween celebration this weekend!
