A Little Help From My Friend

Since I so spectacularly forgot about Last Saturday Knitting (or really more precisely forgot which weekend of the month we had actually reached), I couldn't exactly be counted on to show up for Late Night Knitting last night at the Sow's Ear. So Molly Bee (yes, the widely recognized Molly Bee) very thoughtfully emailed me a heads up in advance. Thanks, Ms Bee!

It was a lovely summer evening. The place was packed, and we ended up out on the front lawn, which (after a small argument with the sun umbrella, which Dale-Harriet resourcefully resolved with yarn and a couple of half hitches) turned out to be the perfect place to be.

I got to see Ms Bee's holey Kauni scarf, and Jen's awesome handspun that is becoming a shawl (she spins amazingly finely and evenly), and Dale's red thing that I assume was a toque, and Mary's start for a sweater. I brought along the wonky cable socks.

I could deal with them during conversational knitting because I've finished off the cabled part and am now on the straight stockinette shot to the toe.

I left a little on the early side, to drive while it was still light, and because I had to get up for work this morning. As I got up to go, Jen handed me jar of her Strawberry freezer jam. My favorite. On the way home, the evening air was soft, and the rolling green hills lovely. Couldn't have asked for a better Friday night.

I'll try to jog you next time too. We loved having you! Jen's jam is AMAZING. I got a loaf of sourdough at the bakery in New Glarus this morning and had some with jam for supper. Oh. My. Gosh! YUM!
