Today we started what we think is the “official” day of our Every-Second-Saturday-Of-The-Month-Knitting-Gathering. We met promptly (ok, I wasn’t prompt but only missed it by about 10 minutes) at 9:30 am at a local yarn/coffee/bookstore.
This morning gathered six of us. We all either brought our own beverage or purchased a hot cup of something from the shop while enjoying their cozy fireplace, couches and rocking chairs. One generous knitter even brought just baked gingersnap/gingerbread bread. Yum – a perfect addition to a fresh November morning.
Several of the knitters have been enjoying the craft for many years. One knitter is a little newer to the art – having started her knitting adventure with a lovingly made dishcloth for her husband last Christmas. She playfully described her dishcloth journey which started her in the knitting world and reported that somehow her finished dishcloth ended up with a slightly distorted shape. Luckily, we all are very aware that a free-form shape works just as well as one with a mathematically correct outer parameter. Thank goodness!
The same member of our group was even able to complete a scarf project this morning that was started last winter (it's around her neck in the photo to the right)! Whoo Hoo! We all love a happily completed project.
After two swift hours of drinking, eating, chatting, shopping, laughing and, oh ya, knitting, we said goodbye for the day. A morning well spent.
