Christmas is coming soon. L's exams are finished. She met up with some friends for lunch, and I went to sit in my soon-to-be-departed knitting shop to wait and knit for an hour or so.
When the shop closes, I'll be looking for a place to knit, but I don't think I'll find any spot quite so congenial, or one that will open up quite such an interesting network of friends and aquaintances. Without the bonhomie, I don't think I would have finished so many projects (started, yes, but finished? I don't think so!) It's hard to keep a small business going on your own, as B has tried to do, especially in the present economy (no, we're not booming; quite the contrary). I'm a rather shy person, so coming every week, not really knowing who will be there, has been an interpersonal challenge!
However, I think B is landing on her feet, and this experience has been a positive one for her. There are plans to keep meeting somewhere else, maybe on Saturday or in the evening. So who knows what's in store for 2007? I know I have 3 projects on my needles (a sweater, a scarf, and a lace shawl), so I'll keep going, one stitch, then one row, at a time . . .
