The Birth of a New Group

Wow! Local knitters are just as cool as the ones I've met on line. In fact I met a few of them on line. Thanks for coming out to our first Common Threads sit and knit. Emily came and helped set up tea and cheese and crackers.
At first people were a bit shy. But we share so much in common: yarn and knitting. There was a first time knitter who was taught by my daughter. Carol taught Emily tunisian crochet and we promised to come back next month with books and tips and finished objects.
How lovely to laugh at the same things. We love our dogs. We sometimes argue with our neighbours. We want to know where the good yarn is on sale- but we don't want to be tempted.
I hope we can slowly grow, like the projects on our needles, to have intertwined lives and many great shared knitting hours.
