Today was the day for Friday Morning Knitting Group to celebrate the season. We knit this morning…shared stories both sad and happy….one of us got a make-up job (lucky me)….we do many things while knit.

We’ve been celebrating friendship and the season for so many years that I’ve forgotten. It is our love of knitting that brought us together and it is the love of the friendships and knitting that weave us together. There were 14 of us at Cugini’s in Albany for our annual “tis the season” luncheon celebration. We wish that Ellen and Merle could have been there…but they sent love and greetings. You would think we would run out of things to say….but rarely is there a quiet moment. After we dined we had one of the best white elephant gift exchanges…we’ve stepped it up a notch in that we really don’t want a bad gift….just to share those things that another might enjoy more than we do! One of the hot items of the day was Vogue Knitting Stitchionary 2 – Cables. It got “stolen” two or three times. There was lots of yarn, a lovely wallet, gift certificate for a manicure, jam, a decorative bag, a lovely bead item which I named a knitting rosary…Jean did not want to give that up…I had to help her display it. Luckily, she was able to keep it.

Now….a photo gallery of the joy at our celebration. Tis the season!
