Tomorrow afternoon I am hosting my first ever knitting party. In the final moments leading up to one of my parties I always get really nervous. For some strange reason I have this anxious fear before each and every party that no one will come and that the party will be an absolute and total failure. To reduce my irrational, out of control nervousness, I plan as much in advance as possible.

I'll create a playlist on my computer and download it to my iPod. The iPod speakers I'll place strategically hidden in my family room. This is a low key party with knitting as the focal point so I don't want anything too loud, rocky or rowdy. I want soothing, cheerful, fun music. Christina Aguilera's Back to Basics, KT Tunstall's Eye To The Telescope, Carole King's Tapestry will make up the compilation. I'll also take a few songs from BuzzSugar's Girl's With Guitars songs. I like the idea of keeping the music to an all female list.
Got a great girlie song that is perfect to motivate our fingers in knitting? Please post it below. Love Come Party With Me? Check back next week when I'll help you plan the ultimate Super Bowl party!
