And going…and going…and going…

16 Jan

So while my interview for Adidas came closer, and more prep time was needed, I naturally stepped away and sat down and knit!  Knitting keeps my mind clear and more focused, even if only for one row.  I consider knitting to be mental therapy.  My bestie, Jen and I met at Cascianos, our local cafe downtown and knitted and drank good tea for an hour and a half.  We then, reluctantly, stopped knitting and headed over to our 5k Run for Fun meeting….only to find out it wasn’t that night!  I PERSONALLY changed the date for our President to next week… UGH (as I bow my head and slump a litte furtherdown in my chair).  ONLY ME.  *Note to self, update your calendar in your iphone*  Jen and I figured that since we were there anyway, we might as well have a beer, some salad and KNIT.  Enter my favorite Caesar salad, Yuenling bottle and rooster fries (thick cut fries with some melted cheese and drizzled with soy sauce minus the hot sauce and chives).  O.  M.  G.  Jen also helped me set up a new Facebook account for my knitting group in town called Hammonton Knits.  Cute right?  I thought so.  It was all Jen’s idea since my brain doesn’t work well when I have to be creative.  All in all, it was an excellent, productive night… thanks Jen Lee!  

 

Well onto my baby sweater.  It is coming along pretty well.  I picked up the stitches around the front panels to add the shawl collar.  The sweater is gray and the collar will by navy blue.  The navy blue for this wool is so dark it is almost black.  Well hey, as Jen stated, black and gray look good together too.  LOL.  The shawl collar is done in K2P2 ribbing and you can really start to see it come along now. another day or two and the collar will be done and then I would like to adding the same ribbing to the bottom of the sweater (especially because the baby will be coming from two particularily tall parents, and hey, an extra inch or two will help).

Tonight is our very first Hammonton Knits meeting from 7-9.  I got a lot of responses and at least 3 or 4 people are coming to learn how to knit.  I am OVER THE MOON about more knitters in Hammonton.  When I open my knitting shops in a few months (I am still in early, early planning stages), it’s comforting to know that not only are more knitters now in Hammonton, BUT I taught them how to knit.  I am hoping I can achieve a feeling of accomplishment and that they get the same feeling as well.  Now, off to Walmart to buy needles and cotton for these ladies at the meeting!
