tuesday afternoon love~

welcome to our tuesday afternoon knitting group

i look forward to this day all week

it is the day i meet up with friends at our local library 

we have several things in common

our love of needlework

knitting

crochet

rug hooking

quilting

along with being moms, daughters & wife's

and mostof all

friends

it isn't a large group

and our ages vary as much as the projects we work on

we are different in many ways

but one thing we share

is our love of snacking!


check out this spread


homemade bread with pesto,homemade jam or local honey

homemade
mocha brownies & chocolate chip cookies

sweet tea

fiesta cheeseball & crackers

fresh fruit & dip

we eat & catch up during the first of our three hours together

there is lots of munching & chatting

but we do eventually get to our projects

(of course eating & chatting all the while)

ok...enough about food, lets meet the group and see their projects!


rachael.....working on a plate of munchies



ruby..rachael's daughter
she's knitting a sweater for herself 
she has many talents, cooking, sewing & knitting
 my favorite thing about
ruby is her sweetness


rosa & her son luis

rosa hasn't decided what her project will be in the end
but with such pretty yarn, whatever it becomes, will be soft & sweet

while we haven't convinced luis to knit or crochet,
he enjoys snacking & conversation
and even washed our dishes for us!


and you met rachael earlier
 she's cleared her plate and is hard at work
on bunny slippers
cutest pattern ever!


and here we have kim working
on a teeny tiny preemie hat
she is the queen of hat knitting
and donates many of them


and bea is working on baby booties
her smile is as infectious as her laugh
she ferments & dries the best goodies to share with us


and here we have megan who is kim's daughter
she can knit, crochet, quilt
 and
 she & her siblings often bake the goodies they share with the group
there's a lot of talent in this young one!


and last but not least, we have ruth
she does such beautiful work
 be it crochet, knitting or sewing
she also bakes goodies to share with us

not only do we have needle projects going on
the past several weeks, we have shared our room with the chess club
and those who desire to learn the game


price, our local honey producer
teaches chess to anyone that wants to learn
because we have shared our snacks with his group of chess players
he shared his honey with everyone in our group
how sweet is that!!!!


this week he was teaching the children of the knitting group

emilina is beside price, she is bea's daughter (also a knitter)
next is ellen, kim's daughter (knit s& reads like crazy)
 &
 megan, also kim's daughter

the young man in blue & white is owen
who is kim's son
he also knits!

then we have egan & william
such sweet boys
they are bea's sons

and on the end is rex, rachaels son
our resident cookie tester

all of the children are home schooled allowing them to be a part
our group


i can't finish this blog without mentioning barbara
she is the reason we became a group
she wasn't with us the day i took the pictures for this post
 as she travels and spends much of her time in canada
but i found a picture of her when she was home
she is teaching us how to make yarn into a hank  

we miss her & look forward to her return in october


if you are in the area
stop by, have a snack, and hang out
with a great group of people

and thanks to our librarian Nancy
who encourages us & shares a wonderful place 
for us to be a family

OK, I'm moving there so I can be a part of this great group. I am so happy you shared with us. Isn't it wonderful how the young men like to take part too.

I can feel the love as you introduced them, a treasure of a group for sure! xo
