… a Franklin Habit
I pulled in the parking lot shortly after noon and it was packed.
There had to be 500 knitters vehicles in the lot.
So, I parked and made my way inside Mecca got my number and began the wait to knit on the scarf and spend a few minutes with Franklin.
It was so enjoyable – Franklin is brilliant. And, it was his birthday. Even better!
I spent the afternoon knitting with friends. Of course Rob and Matt were there. And, when I was walking around I stumbled into Christy and she led me to Marcia and Sharon and Dirty Sue. With much laughter and general merriment I waited for my number to be called. Before long Ewe-niss and 2 of her lovely daughters showed up. It was an amazing afternoon and before it was over Laurie rounded out the fun!
I cannot think of a better way to spend an afternoon – or with a better group of people!
I even managed to knit a row or two! And, I watched the most amazing, fastest, ENGLISH knitter in all of North America. I think we should have a little Knitting Throw Down… I am telling you. This knitter would whoop the Yarn Harlot (sorry Stephanie) needles down! I am hoping one of you Lansing Knitters will share with me the name of this most agile of knitters! And, in advance, I apologize to this Mystery Knitter for not paying attention when her name was said.
I am headed off to soak in the bathtub and then I am crawling in bed.
Too much excitement for this girl today!!
