After a YEAR of my mom casually reminding me that her knit group meets at Starbucks on Thursday mornings, I actually went! How is it possible that the last time I dropped in on these ladies I was pregnant? There must have been a time warp I tell ya. I did a lot of chatting and checking out what everyone is working on, but I also put the finishing touches on Penelope the monster! I still have to knit the baby monster, but at least I now have part of the oldest daughter's "Christmas present" to give her.
Over coffee and knit chat I was convinced to stop by the re-opening of our nearby knitting shop, Fleece. They have moved even closer to where I live, which is quite dangerous for my wallet. Penelope and I headed over there to check out the new location.
After a Grand Opening mimosa and some yarn petting, I was ready to declare this a successful knitty morning out... why don't I do this more often?
