Every other Wednesday evening, a group of us from our tiny town get together at each other’s homes to knit, drink tea and chat. It is very low key and very relaxing and enjoyable. Most of the people who participate are very young – in their 20′s, except me! Even though I’m more than old enough to be the mother of all the others – it is easy to be friends.
I really like this picture – you can see everyone’s hands, busy with their current project. You can click on the picture to view it at Flickr where a much larger version is available.
Although I’ve been knitting for almost 48 years, this is the first time I’ve been able to get together on a regular basis with other knitters. It’s wonderful! These young people are a breath of fresh air in life – it’s refreshing and energizing just to be around them.
Even though we live in a very small town of about 725 people – we met through the internet! We ran into each other through Ravelry and Flickr. That is especially strange when you consider that four of the young people in this photo live in a house on the same street as me – just 3 houses down the street!
