Sock Pixie is Born

I just moved to Boston from California, with my husband, and 4 children. Until a little more than a month ago, I used to own a yarn shop there called Philato. For a month, I thought maybe I was just on a short vacation. And then, reality sank in, I was a yarn lady no more. So I vengefully put my needles away, and stored my stash in the coldest corner of the basement! Slowly day by day, the yarn bug crept up... I started by having my children knit baby hats for donation, my poor little husband needed a new scarf, so of course I had to knit it, and then it was socks, and the smell of the yarn, the touch of the yarn, the colors of the yarn, and the magic of socks did their trick. This morning I woke up, I was the sock pixie!

Hugs from Petaluma!

I started a knitting circle at the Aqus Cafe on 2nd and H street in Petaluma to help to fill the void.

We meet on Saturdays from 12:30 to 2. This Saturday will be our 4th meeting.

Moving on from scarves to shrugs and sweaters.

Just saying "no" to the Knitterly:)

Bye for now,

Mimi

Dear Mimi,

It is so nice to hear from you. So what are you knitting? How is the knitting group going?
I am working on socks for Rolfe. They will be my Valentine gift to him.
