…y’all know how much I love the yellow table at Cast-on Cottage. Hands down it’s the best place to knit with friends. It’s also where we have class – and a whole lot of fun – on Wednesday afternoons. Yesterday morning, one of my students texted that she had roofers at her house and would miss class. I texted back that we’d miss her, and she’d miss all the stories. She replied that I should take good notes. My quick answer back “what happens at the yellow table stays at the the yellow table.” ha!
I guess she knew what was in store. The girls had a big surprise for me! and a delightful kickoff to this year’s birthday week (we all have birthday weeks, right?)
This is the table just after class. Plenty of project bags, WIPs and potential projects is typical, along with the Starbucks cups. But that empty bottle of Prosecco, half-empty bag of parmesan crisps, still-nearly-full tray of White Chocolate Popcorn and half-eaten carrot cake … not so much! We had a very fun time; and thankfully no knitting crises that kept me from fully enjoying all of it.
Denise even brought me a personal gallon-sized bag of the popcorn (I might’ve had a little bowl for breakfast…isn’t that what birthdays are for?) It’s a favorite treat for the care packages she sends her kids every quarter or so. She always makes extra for class. Needless to say, we love care packages! She shared the recipe a few years back and I’m sure she wouldn’t mind me sharing it with y’all:
