Super dee duper

Yesterday I got to do something that I have not done in a long while. I went to a knitting group! Thanks to the internets I was able to scope out a local knitting group before we even moved. It was a fun event and I plan on going back. Non knitters might not get it but there is just something about getting together in a group and knitting. You get to ooh and ahh over what other people are knitting. You get to see (and pet) different yarns (they were very impressed with your handspun Tama). It can also be very entertaining just sitting back and listening to other people chat away. You enjoy the company of like minded people.

When I got home my husband asked me what we had done. I was rather taken aback by the question, after all it seemed pretty obvious to me that when one went to a knitting group one would expect to knit.

Speaking of groups of like minded people gathering... we now have the basement pretty whipped into shape. It seems such a shame to me that now that we own a house with plenty of room I don't have any of my friends from California to invite over. When I was there I could never have play group at my home, there just was not enough room for herds of kids to run around in. I always felt bad that I was never able to host. Maybe I can convince them to all make a trip to my house.... hmm....

I'm sure you'll make plenty of new friends to invite over to your house soon! We also just moved into a new house (although in the same city) and I'd say that in the 2 months we've lived in the house, we've entertained just as much as in the 2 years we lived in the apartment!
