Full Unwind Anniversary Party story to come; pics up on Flickr.
Me with Jess and Casey from the most awesome online social networking site: Ravelry!
I got there for the 6pm one, which ran into the 7:30 one.
I didn't know it was only a mixer, so my expectations were not met. I thought there would be a lecture by the woman who wrote the book, or from the Ravely couple, or Something other than wine, cookies and a huge crowd in a small yarn store all talking about, yarn.
I had to ask each person about their story. While it was nice to talk to the author and others personally, they also had to repeat the story ever 3 minutes for 2 hours. Everyone was asking them the same questions, and you couldn't really have much of a conversation with them.
I go to several knitting groups in LA anyway, so it bugged me that I had to pay $25 (then find something to spend the credit on) when I can get the same social time for free in a comfortable uncrowded space.

Well, that's a bummer that you didn't have a good time. It was exactly what I expected, and I had a *great* time.
