Today I was driving from Massachusetts (30th high school reunion last night!) home to Maine and stopped at the rest stop in Kennebunkport. And who do I see in the women’s room?
Knitters! We. Are. Everywhere.
Looking at some sweater cuff, talking about the stitches. You can imagine it’s hard for me to keep my mouth shut, and I had to tell the woman I thought that the cuffs were not knit sideways, and that the pattern was much like the mitten cuff I’d just knitted. And then we were blathering about Ravelry and all things knitting. And I was telling them how I was on my way to pick up some raffle winnings from Mel, including sock yarn and two pounds of blue-faced leicester.
When I heard from a stall, in a voice of awe and desire, two pounds of blue-faced leicester?
You could hear the drool hitting the seat… wipe it up baby, somebody might think you dribbled!
Mel works near Portland but lives near Kittery, and I’d totally missed him! So it’ll be a while until I get pics to show you, so you can drool too!
By the way…
The reunion was a blast. Everybody seemed to have a good time, even though many of us haven’t seen each other in 30 years! It was all about enjoying each others’ company and what we have in common. Which was so wonderful.
On the left, Carl (the first boy I ever kissed!) and me… He married a really sweet girl from our class. On the right, me and some trouble! Some things never change, eh?
