Yesterday I was surprised at knitting to find a birthday party in the parking lot! So sweet! I had spent the day shopping with my best friend in Ft. Langley and we were late getting home because of an accident on the highway. We took the rural roads to the next exit and it was lovely but slow.
In the nice weather we are knitting outside (usually in the garden) and enjoying the unusually warm and dry summer. It has been a record breaking month. But, other than having to water the flowers, it has been pretty pleasant. We have quite an evening breeze.
A spread fit for the ladies with gluten and lactose free brownie pizza. These are knitting friends whom I have only known for a few years or less. They are as young as 20 and older even than me. Shop owners, pharmacists, students, government workers. We would never have found each other if it hadn't been for knitting. I feel blessed that, after nurturing what I thought would be a failing group, I have a large circle of friends who share their passion for their crafts, their families and their lives with me.
The feather boa did have blinking lights, but you could only see them as the twilight came on about 9 pm when we usually pack up. I feel blessed to have a community to share with.
