International night

Had a lovely night on Thursday with some friends from here and there. Had a wee dinner party with the Spanish Assistant from my school (Monica from Galicia) and her flatmate who I had never met before but was lovely (Audrey from Nantes). Also represented were Burnley and the fine hamlets of Auchinloch and Moodiesburn. The Welsh contingent couldn't make it.

Had a great night with plenty of food, wine, laughter and banter. What more could you ask for? Must do it again soon.

Any knitting news? Well, like Madeline (MadKnits in sidebar) I am doing the Multidirectional Scarf. I admired Heather's (Dollydimple in the sidebar) at the SECC and she talked me through how it's done so I am making in-roads on it with my Noro Aurora from K1 Yarn Boutique (you guessed it, sidebar).
Not the softest but I'm enjoying the way it's turning out.

Paltry progress to report on Heathery sock no#2. I don't have full blown Second Sock Syndrome as such, but I certain have a mild condition when it comes to the second in a pair.

Have done a few more repeats on my 4ply Alpaca scarf. I have high expectations for this, it's shaping up really nicely.

Haven't cast on anything major since I finished Fern, although Bay from Rowan 36 is a contender, as is something in All Seasons Cotton from Rowan's Classic Knits for Real Women, or words to that effect.

Must dash, off to Kirkintilloch to a local Art Exhibition. Apparently it's fairly bijou this year, but I'm sure it's still well worth seeing. x K

Hey, I'm doing the multidirectional scarf too! not much progress on it yet as I was then seduced by Besotted scarf, I've got about half done so far.

I just wonder where India can have bought her new Denise needles. More business for K1yarns maybe?

Karen, I looked up that besotted scarf, it looks lovely with all those xo kisses and hugs on it. Finished your cousin's scarf?
