knit one, purl one.

Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit, either.

Since August, I've been spending my Sunday evenings at a local coffee shop with a great group of fellow knitters.  Except for a couple, I knew none of them before a few months ago.  Now it's one of my favourite parts of the week.  We come from a multitude of backgrounds but we all share a love for turning bits of string into things to wear, give or treasure.  Throw in coffee and conversation and you have the makings of a great evening.

Tonight was cowl exchange night and the girls got to swap some handmade love.

Julie models her new cowl - in purple, of course!

Jilanna couldn't be with us tonight so I got to play cowl fairy and bring Lesley the beautiful cowl Jilanna knit.

Julie tries to get a sneak peek of the cowl knit for Jilanna.

We love knitting right down to the tips of our toes.
