Knitting Circle April 29, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — picturefool @ 3:08 am

Tonight we gathered for Monday night knitting circle. I realize that today is Wednesday but you can’t change the name of something over a technicality. Or can you?

Anywho, there were four of us tonight and the junior member, a chef in training, cooked an amazing meal for us complete with a delicious cocktail.

One of us had to dash early because her husband’s car broke down but the rest of us talked for hours. What started as a discussion of wanting live-in help ended with a group family history sharing. I haven’t shared much of my story in quite a while and it felt good to open that locked closet. It made me realize how much I trust these women and how important they are to me.

Not much knitting happened and my twenty hanks of yarn still need to be wound but, as S said as C and I packed up our stuff, we support each other’s knitting! That’s what matters: that we support each other.

I love my new friends already.

    We love you too!!!! I had such a fabulous time with you all last night. So sad I’m leaving soon…. perhaps a skype session may be in order?

    Thanks for trusting us…I think we compressed what could have been many weeks of getting to know each other into one evening. My conversation with John after you guys left:
    John – what did you guys do?
    Sherri – we bonded.
    John – no knitting.
    Sherri – Just bonding.

    See you next week!
