Friday Night Knitting Club

So here's the little miss, modeling a scarf made from one skein of Baby Alpaca Grande at The Woolie Ewe. We popped in this morning to scope the joint for newbie-knitter-class supplies. The owner pointed us to this - and it's on sale. Whoop! Only $10 for that soft, soft lovely. -- Let me interject here to tell you Little Knotty's spontaneous, non-prompted proclamation as we walked into the store: "Be very patient," she said pointing to herself. I was quite amused.

As we walked around the store, she showed off her mom-knitted poncho to the nice ladies at the back table, and she picked out several toddler-sized sweaters on display and asked me "Yeah, Mommy can do?" So I guess I need to make some more sweaters for her...

Here's more of the Baby Alpaca. There were lots of good, chunky starter yarns on sale. I think I can get everyone a little scarf kit together for about $20.

I walked out with a test-skein of alpaca. Little Knotty walked out with a cupcake from the staff of the Ewe. Now I have to find a suitable meeting place. Somewhere where yarn, snacks and wine meet...
