Cathy and I make it to the blogoshere

November 23, 2008

From the blog “Chappy”s Mom” http://chappysmom.com/2008/11/22/unexpected-knitting-adventure/

Cathy and Karen with their latest knitting projectsSo–Mom and I headed down to Wightman’s Farms for apple cider for Thanksgiving, and then went to Starbucks in Bernardsville for coffee before heading home. And while we were there, we saw these lovely ladies knitting … and, obviously, we struck up a conversation. This is Karen and Kathy, both fairly newish knitters, but they knit and sell hats to raise money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer–isn’t that great? And so nice to make new, knitting friends, too.

We were having a nice time, and then they mentioned the reason they were there–the LYS in Bernardsville, the Knitting Lab, was closing and having a sale of up to 70% off their stock, but it didn’t open until 12:00.

Cathy and I met Deb and her mom at Starbucks yesterday. Knitters/crocheters must be the friendliest people on the planet. It’s amazing how easy it is to start conversations with strangers when they are stitching. Deb explained how to make socks using the magic loop technique. I am still too intimidated with knitting socks to move to magic loop. Maybe after I get through turning the first heel on the sock I started, I’ll feel more confident.
