Retreating with my Thursday knitting group, and others we don't see as often, was wonderful, but not perfect because this year didn't work out for my good buddy Melissa.
Full of stories of the past year, tons of laughter. Oh yes the food! We do have a wonderful charity we donate too, the Friendship House, a local safe house for women and children. 1515.00 was raised through silent auction, donations we bring~
Our youngest retreat-er Jennifer Ham, we surprised her with a baby shower. We'll have to wait till the end of this year to see the little boy they call Hamlet. Baby Showers made up of knitters are the best. This darling cabled sweater came from Lois, a former LYS owner, the reason we all know each other.
I'm blessed to know and be supported by these talented, caring women. If you are part of a group embrace it, hopefully it's just like mine, through good times and bad, we all have a bridge with knitting, but really it so much more!
