WOO HOO DAY 7!!!!
It has been a lot of fun reading so many posts each day... and a lot of work to come up with my own! Ironically, this week, blogging about knitting has really cut into my actual knitting time.
For *some reason*, knitting time in my world is hard to come by anyway. It is almost exclusively an evening activity.
|Note: *some reason* above|
Then maybe some reading about knitting, here (until I get in trouble for keeping the light on)
If only I could figure out how to successfully knit, here : )
However, my favourite time to knit is at my friend's house on Wednesday nights. All week I look forward to getting out for an evening (with no kids!) and having a laugh with friends while we knit. I even skyped in when I was on vacation!
There are usually 3 - 8 of us there. Some of us are single, some are married. Some have kids, some are still able to plan fabulous solo travel adventures. When any of us have friends or family in town, we bring them too. We call it "Craft Night" (although there has been much debate about a cooler name but as of yet nothing has stuck). In the beginning, some of us would cross stitch or embroider or crochet but slowly we have all been sucked into knitting. When three of us had newborns last summer there wasn't a whole lot of knitting going on but we almost always showed up every week anyways. Now the babies are bigger and stay home so the big girls can concentrate on important things... like who's turn it is to bring dessert, oh and knitting.
All in all, we have a good laugh, help and encourage each other and definitely enable each other yarn habits.
|I mean, who wouldn't want to hang out with these kooks?|
Happy Knitting and Crochet Blog Week! Well done everyone!!
