Knitting Social

I just love getting together on weekends with fellow knitters. Sometimes we knit at yarn stores or various eateries. Sometimes at our homes. Jeff and I hosted this weekend and it was a blast.

Everyone brought a little somethin' to chow on and we ate and drank our way through the morning, discussing everything from knitting to anatomy, pets, drug use, television, you name it. Rarely do I get together with the Ladies of Knitting that I don't laugh so much that tears stream down my face. Today was no exception.

Sometimes I wonder what brings us all together. Our ages span two decades. Some of us are married, some not. Some are cat people, some are dog people. Some straight, some gay. But what we do have in common is a passion for knitting (and crocheting!), a quirky sense of humor, and an endless capacity for listening to each others' triumphs, gripes and problems. What more could you ask for?

Getting together with these women is one of the highlights of my week. I was so glad to have them over. There were a few who couldn't make it -- moving is a pretty good excuse -- and I hope to see them soon.

And to top it all off, I still have a few cookies left over...


  1. You didn't say the cookies were for knitters! All the better. Looks like great fun - wish I could join you!

  2. Aw, you've summed it up so well. When people ask me about my friends I can't sum us up easily...except for our common sense of humor, our fiber obsession, and all of the fun that we have together.

    And I totally stole another cookie when I came back to get my camera bag.

  3. I agree with Staci - you describe our group so well!
    I always look forward to our Saturday mornings, it helps me get through the other 6 days of the week!

  4. Wonderful! XXOO!

    wait, omg, the word verification i just had to type in for blogger was reamings.

  5. that last post was from me (jene). I got totally carried away with the whole reamings concept and forgot to type in my name.

  6. Sounds like a fun group - it really is amazing how knitting can bring such different people together...

  7. What a great group! I really look forward to spending time with the people in my group.
