Some of my best friends are my knitting buddies.  We get together regularly and share our passion for knitting - fun projects, new yarn, interesting techniques.  We also share our lives with each other - what's going on with kids, families, jobs, health.  We've been gathering for quite some time now and have shared many things, all the while knitting . . . stitch after stitch after stitch.

These friends have been very supportive of my business, always offering to lend a hand.  Wind yarn, label skeins, booth help, computer assistance, sample knitting, photography.  Even if I don't need the help, the offer is always so touching.  

A couple of weeks ago one friend offered to knit a sample, and I took her up on it.  

Samples add so much to a booth, and with a show coming up I've been working to add a few new ones to the lineup.

I appreciate that my friends use some of their precious knitting time on my behalf.  It's very generous.

We've created our own community and a strong support network.  We help each other not only with knitting emergencies but also with other life emergencies that arise.  Even if you don't need the help, it's comforting to know it's there.  Just in case. 

This pattern is Breiwick by Gudrun Johnston.  The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Marie, colorway Cinnamon.

Thanks, friends!
