~Anytime we get together is our special time to knit. Picking a special location would be The Office aka Starbucks. Curl’s steaming hot decaf Americana and Q’s black iced tea, no water, no sweetener – what a way to start the day. Our bags are full of “stuff” to share with each other. We move the chairs around to the perfect position so the sun isn’t in our faces. After all of the sharing and drinking and snacking (ok, we do get a snack), we pull out our knitting project. Curls is such a fast knitter that she is usually further along than Q. It helps that we do any new parts of the project together, especially with the Norwegian Star slipper project. In the slipper project there was a typo when we got to the instep and with one reading and one knitting it was easy to figure out the problem.
As we are knitting, laughing, and generally having a marvelous time, people walk by to say “hi” and some to stop and chat. Women want to know about knitting, so we are able to open the world of knitting up to someone new. We both know how to crochet, but prefer knitting.
Lunch time, there is a deli next door to The Office which serves one of our favorite sandwiches; hot Santa Fe Chicken on a bagel. It’s hard when we have to pack up and say good-bye for the day. Another perfect day in paradise doing what we love!
