Last Thursday morning was a beautiful, sunny, fall day and I was heading out to Mansfield, Ohio to meet up with Cookie A. and Anne . We met up at Doc's Deli for lunch where we entertained with our "knitting party" and in return we were entertained with magic tricks! It was a great little place! We knit for a while and then it was time for Cookie and I to head back to Germantown for the evenings class.

Cookie reluctantly said goodbye to Anne. Anne and I agreed to get to work on an event here in town and to keep in touch. I wanted to load Anne up too.....
When Cookie and I got back to the shop the knitters were in full swing! Kimber from Fiber Optic Yarns came toting LOTS of yummy goodness! We dove right in claiming this skein and that. Cookie found a great skein called Blackbird that matched her and her hair perfectly!

After was time to get class started. Everyone was excited about getting creative with stitch patterns. Cookie was excellent! We had a great evening!
Everyone went right to work swatching!
The next morning Carole and I met up with Cookie for breakfast. Yes Carole was here all the way from New Jersey! It was great to have her attend the event too!

After lunch and some knitting we went out to the gazebo for a class photo!

I enjoyed having Cookie here so much! It was a great time. I wish that I could have hung around Friday night.....but I had commitments and Cookie had quite an early flight. So we parted ways....with me begging her to promise to come back soon.

So now.... all I'm left with is Crumbs. What I'm lovingly calling my sock I designed in class. I can't wait until we meet again......
