A “Knotty” Surprise

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.
