I'll be outside on my new garden swing in the front yard, since the DH is
working today.
Does that count?  Working on a sweater for my new grand-nephew!

Sorry about Gail.

The bright side is that a hospital waiting room is a very good place to
teach knitting- there is just something about knitting that offers comfort.

comfort.

My grandfather taught my aunt to knit with two match sticks and a little bit
of yarn when she was in hospital.  True story.  I've heard if from everyone
in the family.

So Noreen... is this annual event on the same day every year, or the same
weekend perhaps?  It sounds like a neat idea.  I hope your weather was good
for this.  :o)

Not Likely. . .
Gem,
It's an annual event, always the same weekend, which for the past three years
has been the 2nd Saturday of June.
It was GREAT weather, not nearly as hot as last year, AND we made the paper and
got pix and interviews!  Yippeeeeeeee!
Hugs,
Noreen

I'll make a note of this in the back of this year's calendar to add to next
year's calendar when we get one.  Good to hear the weather agreed with the
event... and that you made the paper too.  ;o)

coming
same
next

And next year we could maybe get a little warning so we could plan on taking
our knitting with us ... make a point of knitting in public is what I'm
trying to say.  ;-))

I'm afraid my knitting won't be public today.  But what a great idea!  I've
never heard of this before.

It was the Nordstrom's (www.nordstrom.com) woman's wear sale day.  I knew
they were a big event in SF, but I had not realized it has gotten to be a
big event in Walnut Creek.  They bus women in from places like Fresno and
Modesto!  "Nordies" is the only department store that I could stand to spend
several hours in.  Anyway, DW needed new blue dress pants.  Better to sit
and knit (and get credit for being a good sport) than to wait and fidget.
Terry has been working too hard.  I guess she was a bit "shopping deprived"
and over eager to do a bit of shopping.

There was this (very well dressed) old lady that said, "(She) learned how to
knit in the convent in 1922 in France, and that I was knitting American
style, and that I would be able to knit much faster if I would learn to knit
Continental style!" She did not want to hear about knitting sheaths, because
"Continental is the fast way to knit!"  So, she grabbed the knitting out of
my hands and proceeded to show me how to knit Continental style!  I guess
she was a little "knitting deprived" and over eager to do a bit of knitting.
I bet she still runs her son's household.

By and large, the men waiting and fidgeting in the waiting areas showed much
less interest in the knitting than the ladies who were shopping.

*ears perking up*  Walnut Creek?  wow...  I live in Concord.

Have you been to the yarn store that took over where Thimblecreek used
to be?  Do you know of any others in central CoCoCo?

Across from Kaiser on Newell Avenue at the other end of that tiny
shopping mall where Taxi's is or was (don't remember if it's still there).

It is terrible that I complain about Michaels and JoAnnes, but have not been
to all my LYS - YET!  There I was waiting just around the corner, and did
not think to walk over and check out LYS.  Shame on me.

Oh, don't feel bad -- I haven't been to any yet. :)  I knew about
Thimblecreek for AGES and never went in.  Then I heard that they had
moved and a yarn store moved into where they were before.  *shrug*
