Missing were Rachel and Kimberly -- we hope you both can join us next time. It's so nice to see everyone in person, as well as their knitting projects. Kristen, Karen, and Debbie were working on socks. Sarah, Valerie, and I think Cindy, were working on sweaters, and I had my pink mohair mittens.
I'm terrible when it comes to shopping at knitting events. By now, I'm sure Kristen has labeled me hopeless. I bought only 2 skeins of yarn at the Farmhouse Yarns sale when she invited me to go with her during the summer. I didn't purchase anything at Rhinebeck (I'll pause for a moment while you let the unbelievability of that sink in; I still don't believe it either), and then on Saturday I also went home empty-handed. If I don't go to an event with particular things in mind, I get overwhelmed with the choices. Everything or nothing speaks to me. I also want to knit more of what I have at home right now: patterns and yarn for two or three sweaters, a shrug, a felted purse, and then all of the skeins of one and two that need to be assigned. Maybe by the next meetup I'll do better?? What do you do -- do you set out to look for something on your mental list, or only purchase something on sale, or only look for patterns, or whatever speaks to you that day?
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, and if you work outside your home, that the shock of going back was not too much. It's that time of year at my work where it's almost too busy to breathe, so I apologize if you have not heard from me. Thank goodness for car knitting and portable projects!
