All knitting, all the time.

Ogden Knit Night February 9, 2011

Through serendipitous events I was invited to the Knit Night at Needlepoint Joint. I couldn’t wait to check it out! My Stitch and Bitch in England was mostly just me and a friend, and I knew meeting some knitters would make my Utah home feel more like ‘home’.

So, I grabbed an easy project (my eye popping rug, that I’ve worked on for months now) and headed out.

I was amazed by this knitting group!  Knitters flooded the store. I didn’t think it was legal to have so many knitters in one place at a time. And the diversity of projects was impressive. The knitters ran the spectrum from the self professed social knitter to several designers, one of whom (after only five years of knitting) was designing a lace wrap to die for and discussing the intricacies of provisional cast on’s that I never even knew. Another member just finished an amazing Fair Isle sweater that was a dream.

I was grateful to be included in this group that’s been going strong for over seven years. The women are wonderful, friendly, and brilliant. And Utah does feel more like home now.

Now to try Jello Salad.

      Thank you for the kind comment. I would suggest your sister check out Needlepoint Joint – they have a ton of classes, plus lovely yarn, and she can meet some nice ladies at the knit night the first Thursday of the month.
