What a great time we had Knitting & Crocheting in public at the Main Street Deli in Anderson, SC. Look how many people came! And there are more at tables you can’t see.
What? Where am I? You think maybe I took this picture? Um, no. See those glasses on the left peeking over top of the young lady? There I am! Debbie from Yes Yarn gets the photo credit. Where are my photographs? Well, let me tell you. There are NONE! Why you ask. Because I was too busy yakking!
I made it to Anderson (a 30 minute drive) just fine. I start talking with the ladies, checking out what they are knitting and putting names with faces and screen names with avatars, finding out who everyone is. I order a fantastic chicken salad sandwich on the freshest crousannt you’ve ever had. It was enough for two. (I saved half for dinner) I finally get down to business of actual crochet and wha? I forgot my pattern! Don’t ask. I can’t explain it. Luckily the Deli is in the same complex as Yes Yarn and we were able to run down & print off another copy of the free Turnberry Cardigan pattern. So I get started on the motifs for the cardigan and we are all gabbing away. Now see, I don’t crochet, count, read patterns AND talk very well so this is the extent of 2 hours of crochet.
Yes. Really. Sitting in my living room I can crank one of these babbies out in about 3 minutes. And look at this! Mary is sitting acrosss from me in the above photo (red shirt). She put the finishing touches on this beautiful blanket while we were there. Can you believe she’s only been knitting about 2 years!? I’m so jealous.
Anyway we really did have a great time talking and eating and getting to know one another. The food at the Main Street Deli in Anderson is wonderful! Go! Try it! You won’t be disappointed.
