Gifts Of Life

Knitting group

Happy Sunday! I had a wonderful weekend that started with a great surprise – I discovered a small local knitting group and joined them for a coffee on Friday. It was such a great feeling to be around knitters and chat about tools, patterns and yarns. I brought my Wheat – it is the perfect project to carry around, even though I am almost finished with the body, it is still not too big to carry around and a great mindless stockinette stitch knit, though I can’t wait to get to the cabling on the sleeves.

I was also happy to show my new knitting friends Add One Stitch Knitting and it was amazing to see the reaction in real life. One of the main goals of the book was to show the beginners that all knitting is basically juts two stitches – knit and purl – and by learning those they can create beautiful textures. I saw the genuine interest and excitement about it and I really hope to see some finished projects from the book soon!

Saturday brought more simple joys – the local organic market is in its full bloom and I just love this place for wonderful hardworking people who care about nature and sell delicious produce.

    I LOVE my farmers market – I base the rest of my groceries around what I find, and it’s that time of the year when the finds are plentiful.
    Isn’t is great sharing your creations with people in real life. I mean, it’s one thing to show off things online, but getting to see real reactions is just so much more fun!
    Have a great week!
