CKU got together last night for a big Knit Night at Leona’s. It was a very busy night for us, we had like 18 knitters, and I had two more new students!

Here’s Sarah, learning how to knit:

She picked up on it really fast, probably because she already crochets. She was pretty far along on her coin purse when she left.

Next up was Brandy, who also picked it up very quickly. She plans to finish her coin purse today. You Go Knitter!

You can see Amber and Chelsey knitting away in the background without assistance.

Amber was finishing up a headband for a friend (she made up her own pattern!) and Chelsey decided to knit a Penis Chapstick Holder (rav link) for a certain lucky recipient.

After we had knit and eaten plenty of lasagna, we decided to go visit our friend, Julie, who is the best bartender in Chicago (cough cough, Redeye, cough cough).

That girl makes the most incredible drinks, and always with a smile. A bottle of Cava and a chocolate martini later, I was no longer able to knit and it was time for me to turn in for the night.
