After graduation came a full time job and with a job came moving out-of-state.
Moving out-of-state meant leaving the knitting group I’ve loved and enjoyed for the past 2 years and the 11 ladies who have become my “grandmas”.
Oh Knotty Knitters of the Public Library – You will be missed.
Last Thursday, July 28th, was the last knitting group I’ll have for a while. I don’t know when I’ll be able to take off in the middle of a work week to drive 3 hours home to knit with my girls.
This past week, just as our knitting was winding down for the evening, I heard “surprise!”. Startled, I saw everyone put down their needles and smile at me. I looked over my shoulder only to see a beautiful cake and across the table to see 11 smiling faces.
It was the first time I cried about leaving.
My parents came to share in the surprise and it was a lovely few moments spent with dear friends (and delicious cake).
I don’t think I’ll ever find a group as lively as the Knotty Knitters, even though they’re all over 65. No one can replace them! Grannies Wendy, Dolores, Carol, Nancy, Gloria, Helen, Suzan, and Marge – How I miss you already. Thursdays from 6 – 8pm won’t ever be the same.
