thursday night

And that means Stitch Sisters. It was a quiet meeting this time...just a few of us. But my friend Laura came, her second visit. We decided to frog her scarf all the way back and start over. She's just learning how to knit and doing very well but she chose a rather fluffy/knotty yarn and it's harder to correct with if you're new. Luckily she'll be able to come next week too so hopefully she won't get as far along with as many mistakes.

Speaking of my knitting students...my sister-in-law finished her scarf! I'm so happy for her. She's a fast knitter apparently, even for someone who just learned. Amazing. We were discussing her knitting and she has come up with her most comfortable way to hold the needles and found a rhythm that works for her. it's really great that she has picked up on it so quickly, I can't wait to see what she makes next.

Back at the Double S Ranch (Stitch Sisters)...one of our "sisters" is moving to a new house. In the process, she closes in three weeks, she just realized that this means she has to box up and transport the contents of her house. Since she's lived there for 30 years it's a lot of stuff. So she came bearing goodies to share with the rest of us. It's so nice to be able to recycle your stuff to people you know who will use and appreciate it.

Hi mira,
Your blog is wonderful, although this post isn't exactly what I was looking for: gardening presents, but I like the topic and how you wrote it. I am more interested in gardening presents, but during my search for more information I discovered this post, certainly one of the finest blogs I have seen lately!
