From Susan — Great Day, Great Night

Filed under: Updates — lv2knit @ 8:41 am

Wow — what a celebration for our country and the world…ushering in a new president and a new era.  It will be interesting to see what unfolds.

Last evening was our monthly Guild meeting.  It is always fun to meet up with dedicated knitters.  Our program was “movie night” and this is the movie we watched:

Forty minutes of heaven, except that it was 60 people watching a crummy TV with very iffy sound.  Oh well!  Loved every minute!  One of our newest members was introduced and said, “I found out about the guild through The Rainey Sisters.”  Yes — we got a shout out!!  Woo Hoo!  Thanks, Rose, for the “free advertising”!  It helps us keep our costs down!   And a special “hi” to Patsy! 

Sally arrives on Friday so we can participate in the wildly anticipated Bohus festivities.  To be honest, I don’t think the American Swedish Institute will know what hit them!  Saturday there will be open knitting time throughout the mansion.  We will rock the place!!!


  1. I heard a rumor that the Swedish Inst wasn’t sure about the retail sense of stocking Bohus kits for this show.
    They will be pleasantly surprised, I think

  2. Hiya, thanks for the mention. It was great to finally meet you last night after following your blog for so long–and you were so friendly and helpful, too! I was really glad I came last night, the MKG seems like a great group. Just seeing everyone wearing the amazing sweaters they had knitted was such a trip–knitting heaven! Anyway, if you like, you can check me out on Ravelry under “harpoknits.” I tend to write little miniblogs under my active projects (and I mentioned you, too).

  3. It was a great day, wasn’t it!? And it is going to be a great weekend. See you Friday night! (Do you think the ASI would just let us spend the night there, as really, I’m going to be there all weekend anyway?)
