Yesterday was a historic day at Wendyknits.
For it was yesterday at lunchtime that the first meeting of the Department of Labor Lunchtime Knitting Group took place.
It all came about when someone from another agency in Labor emailed me after The Washington Post article ran next month, asking about the possibility of a lunchtime knitting group at work. And a few days later I got another email inquiry. And then a woman who works in my agency mentioned that she used to knit and wanted to get back into it.
That was enough for me!
We had lots of fun! A couple people who were interested couldn’t make it, but hopefully will be able to attend in the future.
I now have my own little downtown knitting posse. I am verklempt.
Here we are:

Yes, I browbeat them into letting me photograph them. A girl’s gotta have blog fodder, you know!

My Secret Pal 2 sent me this link.
(Warning — a couple of pop-ups will open when you click on it if you don’t have a pop-up stopper, but they are nothing nasty.)
I finished the second sleeve. Here are the two sleeves, side by side:
I am very pleased at how well the stripes matched up.
Lucy, too, was impressed.
I have the day off from work today. Yay!
