I arrived bearing RedSamur's copy of Franklin Habit's "It Itches - A stash of knitting cartoons." She had loaned it to me and I was returning it to her. Great book! :) Jan brought some knitting magazines, Knitting and Let's Knit (which I can't seem to find anywhere these days). RedSamur had also brought her knitting mags but I'd gotten an early preview when she let me borrow the Franklin book. ;)

Our meeting was proceeding as per usual, lots of fun and chatter and talk of YARN(!), when an elderly gentleman approached our table and asked if we had a knitting club. He wondered if we might be interested in the knitting needles and books from his wife, as neither his daughters nor his daughters-in-law show an interest in knitting. He is going to bring them to our next meeting. What a kind offer! :)

Head on over to the Naaldzang Photoset for the latest pics.

Keep those needles blazing, knitters!
