Knitting is for the Old and Boring

strike 2

This is why “Knit Club” should be reserved for eating and talking! 🙂 I’ve flubbed up this specific blanket twice now.

My husband is convinced that Knit Club is for the old and boring.. and he secretly thinks I’m such a fuddy-dud for going. Every time I come home he asks, “Were you the youngest one there?”..
I’ll tell you, I was not the youngest one there..maybe the second youngest but most certainly not the youngest. And, I’ll also let you all in on a secret.. these ladies have fun.. they drink their margaritas and other choice drinks, they giggle and laugh about the crazy things that are going on in their lives, they text and talk about facebook.. And after Tuesday’s get together, I now know about a super-duper beer brewing club.. and have learned of an event that goes on every Friday in our downtown district.. it’s called sip and skip, drink or crawl, or something like that.. It’s suppose to be for young professionals.. they all meet up and hop from one pub to another until they hit them all. I guess the last one standing is the winner. Details are sketchy but such an event is defiantly unheard of by most “fuddy-duds”. Let the record show, knitting, or crochet in my case, does not make you old or boring.

  1. Eeeek…your title may describe me. 🙂 I am still contemplating taking a few lessons at a local shop. I’ve yet to find a knitting mentor, but I’m sure, as soon as cool weather rolls around again my needles will start clicking. I so want to learn the fundamentals from someone who has them down pat.

  2. *I know I once told you to save your money but I’m going back on that… taking a class will not only help you learn how to knit but give you the opportunity to meet others who like the same things that you do. I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had with the knitting girls I’ve met in my group. It’s so nice to share my projects and thoughts, see their reactions, & just giggle and laugh. It’s fun.. and that’s good for anyone. Give it a go.. I think you’ll like it.*
