when two knitting Episcopalians are gathered together

My friend Barbara at >Effervescence invited me to come over and help her with a beginning knitting group she was hosting for other Moms in her fair town.

Despite the presence of many active children, knitting was taught and learned, good food was eaten, and well, we may have brought some new people over to the dark side. It all starts with a ball or two of Fun Fur and Simply Soft, and the next thing you know, you're Froogling to find skeins of Koigu and some special blend of wool, angora and bamboo. Posted by Picasa

Sure looks like fun!

It was great fun, and we may indeed have drawn several folks over to the knitting world. Check out how nicely my bright pink shirt blocked the view of the messy party of the kitchen, LOL -- thanks for that, Emily!

it's lovely to see the enthusiasm for knitting over in the US

Here in Finland they still teach it in schools (boys too) and my daughter is just making pink leg warmers (4 needles) with a very nice cable stitch.

I'll post a photo when they are done IF she lets me :)

Hi Lorna,

Knitting is coming back here in the States--I'd love to travel in the north of Europe to places where it's always been important.

By all means, post the legwarmers if she'll let you!
