One of my very favorite things about knitting is my weekly Tuesday night knitting group. The Northside Stich N' Bitch.
This is a very wonderful diverse group of people. Every single person adds something to the group dynamic. There is always advice, incouragement, discussion, and laughter. Tonight I had a picture of us taken to help mark my Knitiversary. Here is all of us:
I love this group and hope to be a part of it for aslong as possible. Tuesday nights are the highlight of my week. Granted I love knitting so having a nice chunk of time to be able and sit and knit is reason in itself to go and brighten my week, but it really is the people I share it with that make's it special.
This year has been a journy and like the best of journeys I've learned alot, but their is always more to learn and ways for me to grow as a knitter. Some of the things I hope to accomplish in the following year are:
- knit a sweater (maybe start with baby and dog and finish with one for me)
- do charity knitting
- knit socks
- design more charts for fair-isle or duplicate stitch
p.s. my yarn swift came today super excited! And in closing here is a carrot I found on a plate at work that looks like a cable needle:
