Knitting night!

Wednesday night we had our knitting night. It was so much fun!

This is our little (but growing ) group! It is great, we have women from age 12-60's (ish?) The 12 year old was new, as well as a woman who has 7 children and homeschools them! I couldn't believe it- schooling 1 is hard enough for me! She makes a living dying wool and knitting cloth diaper covers and baby clothing!
The woman who organized our group, Nancy, is just wonderful. She didn't get one stitch done because she was helping the rest of us! So, besides knitting talk, we also had a great discussion about children's learning styles, reading, and dyslexia. Both of my sisters are dyslexic. I don't think buddy is though. I do sometimes wonder if he had trouble with auditory processing, though.

Anyways, at knit night, Nancy helped me out with my first real pair of socks, using the yarn that my dear SP3 sent me! It is so pretty, everyone commented on it. I will show pics in a few days.

I am still feeling under the weather, so I am cutting it short for now. I will tell you next time about my visit to Fayetteville & seeing my cousin before he deploys!

Have a great weekend everyone!!
