Ahh the infamous Mr. Darcy!

Today was the second month of "Game Knitting" at String Thing Shop. Hosted by yours truly! :) This one was more of a knit along. And the movie was "Pride and Prejudice" and we had a tea party!

We snacked on yummy tea sandwiches. The Winner of the night was english muffin bread, nutella and a strawberry on top! Oh it was SO good! Not a bad invention if I don't say so myself! We also had THREE different kinds of tea. Chocolate Tea, Tropical Robius tea (the winner of the evening) and Victorian Rose tea! The goody bag had a box of tea and a piece of milk chocolate, the pattern for the fingerless mitts and a recipe for Scones! The recipe was my Dziadzi's (Grandfathers) favorite and I hope that it brings a smiles to everyones have when they make it!(I added it to the bottom here!)

The knit along were really cute fingerless mitts! Super fast! I finished a pair for Bernadette as the credits rolled! She didn't want to take them off so here she is modeling them! Don't her nails look fabulous!!

I had a wonderful time and I am really looking forward to the next movie. As it stands right now I am hoping for August 1 at 4 pm. The movie will be "The Blind Side" and I'm thinking it is going to be a Football party! So come one and all!

Dziadzi’s Favorite Scones

Cut up ¼ c. cold butter and add to above mixture. Work in with pastry cutter or two knives until crumbly. Add a good handful of raisins or currants. Stir into crumbs.

  1. Fun and yum. I wish I had a LYS like yours... I need a knitting home away from home. The scones sound delish... I'll let you know how mine turn out.
