I'm sure to the average person, the title wouldn't mean a thing, but those that are familiar with knitting, definitely get it.
Every Tuesday, same time, same place, my group of knitters get together and knit. The venue is Table Rock Llamas, a favorite place of mine to shop too. I adore the two women, Chris & Val, that run the shop; personable and friendly. They make our morning enjoyable, and even join in the conversations.The exchanging of stories fly around the large table and are different every week, in some cases, every hour. It's the one day of the week that nothing interferes with.
We all pack into the back building where the table is set for all 15 + of us...We pull up a chair, nestle in and begin knitting. If you're antsy like me, you get up often to check out the latest addition to the yarn shop. And what yarns I MUST bring home with me, for yet another project.
These girls range in age from 30's to 60's and have massive amounts of kids or maybe just one. These ladies brighten my day and have become a support group of sorts for whatever ails me.
So, next time you find yourself in your favorite LYS (local yarn shop), inquire on the activities that take place; be it a class or better yet a knitting group. You'll be so glad you did.
So, as I always say,
