Knit Night Report

Nice crowd last night! The stack of books and magazines we "reviewed" was even taller than usual. The one we liked the best was "Knitting With Balls: A Hands-On Guide to Knitting for the Modern Man" by Michael Del Vecchio. Filled with fun projects.I don't think any of us ended up buying it but it sure would make a nice present for a newbie knitter, guy or gal. Some how I left without buying the new Interweave Knits. I put it in the return to shelves pile that Jessica was collecting and forgot completely about it until I got home. Doh.

Hello to Jo-Beth/Beth-Jo. Hope you start joining us.

Only four of us showed up for the Long Underwear (scooter) Ride today. It was cold and windy for the West Richland Veteran's Day Parade. We met at Baracudda's in Richland and warmed up inside with latte's then scooted over to West Richland. The West Richland City Clerk had assured us that Van Giesen would be open to traffic till 9:30 am up to Grosscup. Of course not... So we rode past the West Richland Golfcourse instead and got a good view of the flooding. Rather than park at Tri-City Fence/May's Fresh Express we parked at Hot and Sweet.

Good news with the new location was it was warm inside, more hot coffee, great selection of breakfast items, plenty of parking and had restrooms!! Great vantage point for parade watching. Parade was great, fun watching the kids (including Karen, ok and I confess, me too) grabbing candy (Tootsie Rolls).

None of us froze to death, though it may take till Monday for Karen to thaw out!
