Week Notes Vol 16

August 22, 2019

For the past 8 or so years I have been celebrating what we call knitter’s Christmas in July. This year our annual party shifted a little into August. Why would one celebrate Christmas in July? It’s a common issue for those of us who like to make things for other people for Christmas. In the mad rush to get everything done we neglect to take care of our own needs. Hence why every year in January we draw names amongs our group and have full 6 months to plot and plan our presents. Our little group of knitters has gone through major ups and downs together, celebrated successes and backed each other up during dark times. We are all different - some are parents, some are not, some could be parents of the younger ones (we range from 34 to 60) but one thing we all have in common is our love for fiber and zero tolerance for sexism, classism and racism.
