The Friday Night Knitting Club
My book club just finished reading a terrific book called “The Friday Night Knitting Club.”
Wendy was this month’s hostess. She treated us to a yummy lunch (A wonderful salad, the Oatmeal Blueberry Orange muffins mentioned in the book and the most delicious Cappuccino Fudge Brownies!….(you would have LOVED it….too bad I forgot to take pictures for you….)
But hold on — there’s more!
Well, during our book club, Wendy presented each of us with a gift bag filled with knitting needles, yarn and a pattern – isn’t she just the SWEETEST?
(I’m telling you right now that you after read that book you will be just burning to pick up some needles and get knittin! Wendy’s gift was PERFECT~!)
So we got together yesterday for a bit of a knitting lesson (courtesy of our teacher, Grammy.)
Want to guess what we are going to make?
I’ll give you a hint:
We won’t be wearing it….
In fact, we won’t even be keeping it….
We are team-knitting an afghan for “Warm Up America!”
Warm Up America! is an organization made up of volunteers who create handmade afghan blankets, clothing and accessories to help those in need. These items provide warmth and comfort to people who have lost their homes, fled abusive relations, or are being cared for in hospices, shelters, hospitals, and nursing home.
