Happy Friday!

That makes three great knitting days in a row so I had to share.

On Wednesday Bobby was off and could take me and my scooter over to the Claudia Mayer Resource Center. I knit for charity there every Wednesday and haven't been able to go for about two months. I have missed them terribly. It was heavenly to see everyone and they were genuinely thrilled to see me too. We caught up a bit and had finally settled into knitting when one jumped up and said "Ooooo! Ooooo! You came the right day. We just got this in". There were new boxes of donated yarn almost every week but behind me on the table she pulled forth a box full of eyelash. Eyelash! I use it for my No Hair Day Chemo Hats and the colors she had were perfect to match yarns already in my charity stash. We loaded my basket with ball after fluffy ball.

It was meant to be.

On Thursday I went to my regular Sit-n-Knit at the Lakeside Cafe' and Deli. Mr Mike's place was nearly deserted and my friend Nittany Knits and I were the only knitters there. We had the best time, just the two of us talking about nothing but knitting, books and assorted other happy topics. It was the best Sit-n-Knit for some reason. Sitting with one friend and sharing your knitting time is, well . . . therapeutic. It restoreth the soul and sanity. Larger groups can sometimes stray into conduct unbecoming to a knitter. Discussions of acrylic snobbery,
pattern burning, mass froggings . . . but I digress. Try knitting with one friend.

I highly recommend it.

And then came Friday. There was a light snow and a bit of rain last night. Even with a salting this morning, a few small scatterings of ice on our sidewalk nixed me going out for an appointment. The threat of more ice (even though it never materialized) around four in the afternoon canceled another appointment for me. Bummer. It was a totally grey and boring day. Then in comes my Boo.
Look what my Boo brought home tonight! Happy Friday! He's all bright eyed and cheery bearing gifts of an armful of bright flowers, my favorite Starbucks Coffee (in the recycling and not pictured I'm afraid) and a knitting book. My Boo.

He loves me.

That makes three great knitting days in a row so I had to share.
