Last night our West Hollywood Stitch 'n Bitch group celebrated an early Valentine's Day with a yarny love-fest! Our cruise director, Natalie, organized a Valentine Scarf and Cowl swap. We were given about two weeks to complete our project. When signing up we had to state if we had any fiber allergies and two or three of our favorite colors. The default colors were pink or red in honor of Valentine’s Day. Natalie sent us our swap partner’s name on Friday January 29th. Many of us included other little goodies in our gift bags....candy, small accessories, etc. It was so great to actually know who we were knitting or crocheting for, along with their likes and dislikes. Everyone seemed really pleased with their gifties! I know I am!! Thanks, Lauren!

I tried to take everyone's photo, but managed to miss a few. Sorry! We have the BEST GROUP in Los Angeles!!! Have a wonderful Valentine's Day celebration and a great weekend!
