Today was the first Thursday I’ve been able to go to my weekly knitting group in over 3 months and it made me realize how much I’ve missed them. It’s one thing to crochet by yourself, but to be surrounded by people you can “talk yarn with” is another. Our small group, the Knotty Knitters, meet at the local library from 6-8pm on Thursdays evening to knit, crochet, and share stories about life.
I’m the youngest member of the Knotty Knitters (by about 40 years), yet I absolutely love the time I spend with my fellow needlecrafters. These women are so thoughtful and genuine – not to mention knowledgeable about all things knitting – that spending 2 hours with them is not nearly enough time. I wish I was home more so that I could go more often, but alas, college calls.
Don’t worry, ladies – I’ll be back for another round (ha, crochet joke) soon enough.
