#31 of 365 SnB and Burns Supper




Yesterday was a fun filled day as we started of with a free bagel and schmear from Einsteins'. We then went on to celebrated 3 birthdays at the Lamb Shoppe's Saturday afternoon Stitch In. Happiest of Days to Sheila, Molli and Betty-Anne.





I really want to make one of the shawls that Sheila is wearing in the picture. Anita got the yarn, which is a Summer Sunrise dyed silk and wool, to make one as well, whilst we were there. I picked up the black sock yarn to knit my Da's kilt hose and Erin scored some gorgeous merino/silk in greyish tones. Nummy!

After knitting, Erin and I headed to Chez Blair in Littleton for our 2nd Annual Burns Supper. Torin did a bang up job of reciting the Ode and a lovely time was had by all.

Oh! I love the shawl too... are you going to make it as one of your 12?
I have a photo somewhere of my niece in London, she went to a Burns supper at Kings Collage... Black tie and all that... really neat.

Sounds great. I attended a Burn's Supper in Edinburgh a few years ago. Great fun. I'm pretty sure that I would like to hang out with you at this event sometime.

@Diana, should I get my friend Darla's recipe for you, best on this continent and that comes from people who have eaten it on other continents. We throw our own Burns Supper, BTW
