Slap Stitch was AWESOME!

Posted by Nanc

No, really. We (knitters) had a decent turn out in our section, the Stars won, and I saw a lot of knitting going on. Well, at least a fair amount of yarn and needles; who knows how many stitches got made. Keep reading for more of my account.

Posted by Nanc

Eating our dinner in the den/TV room isn’t all that new and wonderful, we do this all the time. But yesterday our den got a bit of an upgrade, which makes it special.
