So since reading this post on Design*Sponge, I've been itching for an excuse to throw a knitting party.
How would this differ from simply getting together with lovely ladies to do crafty things? Not too much, I guess, except I love the idea of it being learning about knitting, and being centered around celebrating something, like the advent of spring. And of something planned a little more thoroughly, perhaps.
I'd love to celebrate the advent of spring by knitting. But my schedule is far too busy this month, and too unpredictable to plan something for April.
So here are other ideas--most of which are farther away than I'd like, but oh well.
-A knitting "bachelorette" party. This idea just occurred to me while writing this post, and it tickles me, because it is a lovely inversion of society's notion of having a final fling of singlehood while you still can. It celebrates something associated with domesticity and being a wife. Fun, no?
-A knitting housewarming party, after Keith and I move in to the new place. I have to say this is my favorite idea, because it would give me an excuse to use all my new teacups, show off the new place, play hostess for the first time as a married woman, and really and truly warm the new apartment up with the presence of lovely women.
-A knitting party to celebrate fall. Because after all, there is no lovelier season, in my opinion. The advent of weather that makes you want to cozy up in a sweater and cradle a cup of something warm in your hand is a perfect thing to celebrate with knitting.
Those are my ideas so far ... any others are welcomed. :)
