We had a wonderful time yesterday.
Lynn (Oscar's sister), Brian (her husband), Oscar and I met for sushi, then went for tea (coffee in my case) and talked for hours.
Lynn and I exchanged knitterly gifts, she gave an ADORABLE penguin to Oscar (see pics at her blog, HERE) and we had a wonderful time.
One of my gifts was a teeny tiny Jayne hat, which will make me the object of great envy at Penguicon in May :-}
Another was a cd by Jen Sygit, a Lansing singer/songwriter whom I've often admired.
Yet ANOTHER was a beautiful skein of hand painted alpaca.... I am already well into a RUSSULA CAP (pattern on Ravelry HERE) suitably adapted for my small head.
I gave her an afghan knitted from her pattern Kristi's Comfort Wrap or Lap Blanket, and a pair of slippers adapted from Coco knits Praire Boots.
From the photo Brian took last night, I think she Likes them :-}
