Then just this week, I received an email from Elana, Moe (Mother of Elana) and Maryanne.
They told us the very sad news that the Southampton knit group is on life support. So here is your invitation, Southampton. If you knit, want to knit, used to knit, have ever thought about knitting, know what knitting is or once saw someone knit - go your local Library on Wednesdays. Elana will be there. You could be having this much fun on the shores of Lake Huron! Grab your needles and go!
Wilma had two neat things to show us today. Most important was a picture of her British Columbia Grand daughters wearing their Grandma-knit tunics, hats and mittens. Aren't they the cutest?
Her other piece of 'show & tell' was more funny than adorable. Wilma has solved the problem of knitting in the car during night drives or knitting in darkened movie theatres. She has needles that light up. Stranger than fiction and you heard it here first, folks. Knitting needles that glow in the dark.
Sharon has a great start on a pair of Zauberball socks.
Nice, but not identical, which disappoints Sharon a bit. I have heard that with Zauberball yarn it is difficult to get identical. Has anyone else heard this?
Poor Joanne. She injured her ankle on a Bruce Trail hike this summer and it is healing
very too slowly.
She is now in a new-fangled cast and can get around well, but no hiking for awhile. The silver lining in that cloud starts with yarn and needles, Joanne.
We got rid of Ruth's mug-shot look. Much nicer when you smile, Ruth.
Oh - and cute little knitted outfit too.
With company - international company I point out again - knit group was enthusiastic, loud and fun! Right next door to our room at Meaford Hall, voters were coming and going at the Advance Polls. We were
hysterically quite loud at times. I wouldn't be surprised at a higher-than-normal number of spoiled ballots. If my preferred candidate doesn't win, can I blame knit group?
Part of today's fun came from trying to guess what Ingrid is knitting.
We still don't know.
Our My comment was so rude she chose not to tell us. To be continued.
