Close-knit

I'm having great fun hosting a knitting group in my home. The teacher/artist is my daughter-in-law, Michelle. She and our mutual friend, Kim, came up with the idea to start a knitting circle. Besides enjoying each other's company, the goal is to donate knitted items to worthy causes.

Michelle is a very talented and patient teacher. Some of the women who came had never picked up a pair of needles before. Everyone left on the first day knowing how to knit.

Love the colors, faces full of concentration, and glowing hands

Catching on quick!

Of course, not all of us were actually interested in knitting, but didn't want to feel left out...hooligan

Aww...I like knitting. The knitting circle reminds me of the quilting circles of old (or of Amish). Cold weather has a way of being perfect for the inside crafts. Now that I have someone little to knit for, I wish she would give me the time to knit!

I hope we'll get together as a group when you're here. I'll watch the baby :)

P.S. At the knitting group my job is to serve tea and cake.

Joy certainly has become a prolific knitter since she left for NZ.
