Feeling Crafty? Don't Mind If I Do!

A couple of days ago I received an email  from Tif  hoping I was 'doing fine and dandy these days' and that 'she would very muchly like to see my latest knitty creations!' (she has such a fun way with words) She suggested meeting that evening at the Tolt Yarn & Wool store's Tuesday knitting circle and so off I went...

It is true, I have become a bit of a recluse these last couple of months and the knitting clan can be a bit daunting, (and they were all so nice of course, why was I so worried???) so it took an encouraging email from Tif to get myself going again. I had such a good time, so much so, that I spent an hour and a half in the shop just now chatting both with her and her colleague Tara, plus helping out  a German/ Danish costumer with some color advise: what fun!  {smile}

I have mentioned before what a wonderful shop Tolt Y & W is and I will say it again. It feels like entering a haven, with like-minded souls and such loveliness everywhere and well ... just take a look:

I came home feeling all refreshed and re-energized. Let the crafting (knitting) commence!  <wink>

A most brilliant gift from Tif...
(how does she keep on coming up with these ideas?)
