Knitting Date...


On Thursday nights at about 7 we have a Knit Along to get to!  I scurry around to tidy up the house, get dinner on the table, and two little boys all jammied up.  Sugar Plum and I slip out with our knitting baskets in hand.  It seems so strange to go somewhere with one little one in the car (and at bedtime, no less!).  She really turns into a chatterbox!  

Once we arrive, we pull out our current projects and knit and visit.  The shop is small and cozy and though it is obviously a place of business, it feels a little like home.  We work until about 8:15 and then dash to the car.  Sugar Plum asks whether she can stay up just a little bit longer to knit and I always regretfully say no.  As we open the front door, we are greeted by two little boys and one tired papa who are so happy to see us!  

Our little weekly date only lasts a short time, but it is just what we need!  We are already planning years ahead of ourselves and all of the things that we'd like to learn how to do:  use a swift and ball winder, spin yarn, weave, etc.  I am so glad that we were able to learn how to knit.  I am hopeful that there will be many happy dates for the two of us!

Love this. When life allows I'm going to institute some girl time for me and my girls too.

You will love it, Maria. It's neat to really be able to focus on them for an hour or two. I plan on taking our four year old out to do something by himself, too.
