Yesterday I went to the local yarn store, because I’m heading onto some vacation and in need of knitting. There in the store was Alison of SpinDyeKnit – and we hadn’t seen each other live in years and we almost couldn’t even say anything at first, and then, of course, there was catching up to do. She has a daughter living in Alaska and was knitting a lovely cable throw that will be warm for her daughter and the baby that is coming.

There’s a lovely group of knitters that she gathers with each Friday, and I got to hang with them while my yarn was being wound by the store – they were lovely and did all the skeins even though the policy of the store is to do one, because no one else was waiting.

I’ve missed hanging with knitters and so this is a lovely discovery for at least a couple of Fridays in July!
