My knitting group is losing a key member this month. We've known that Lisa would be moving at the end of this summer for more than a year, but that doesn't make it any easier now that the time has come to bid her farewell. So to honor our dear friend, we decided to hold a farewell luncheon. Our hostess Joan made the cutest little name place cards
We each brought some special dish to the luncheon and created quite a delectable array of food.
And of course, we did the only logical thing a knitting group could do. We knit her a friendship blanket.
She had no idea... which is saying something since we've been knitting it on the sly since about February or March. We couldn't post anything on Ravelry and kept saying that we had all "lost our knitting mojo."
She loved her blanket and it will be a wonderful hug from her knitting friends when she's in the midwest. We'll miss you! You're a treasure!
