I am thankful for knitting groups. Being a stay-at-home parent to older children, I find it harder to make friends and meet people than I did when I had very young children. Knitting groups have been a help. The first knitting group I found connected me to a book club (I’ve always wanted to be in a book club!) and slowly the circle of people I knew grew.
The second group I found meets every other Thursday night at various breweries around the city. I don’t really like beer, but I liked the people I met there, so I kept going back. I met up with them tonight. We chatted about knitting, about personal lives, about the election – about life. I’m glad I’ve found these people. They were definitely a spot of sunshine (moonlight? it was the evening) in a very trying week.
