Last evening I cooked a pot of stew for my family, then headed out the door to a dinner/knitting get- together hosted by a friend. The food was spectacular and the conversation involved a lot of laughing. Knitting didn't necessarily take a back seat, but projects sat waiting for more stitches to be put on as their creators became more engrossed in the stories being told.
When there are so many things that keep us busy - work, children, the never ending list of chores, it's great to spend an evening out with friends. As the holiday season approaches and things get even busier, I hope you make time to connect with friends and enjoy their company. It's good for the soul. (Thanks Diane!)
