I belong to two knitting groups, one weekly, the other held once a month at Commuknity in San Jose; last night, the latter was a booksigning event. My friend Robin showed up from Bethesda, Maryland! The others were all friends who’d watched the pieces of Wrapped in Comfort slowly coming to be, shawl by shawl, and it was fun to put the whole thing together on display at one time for them. This is a shot of just a few of them. You see that lovely gray-haired woman there to the right? She helped with the test knitting.Commuknity knitting

Gail, the LYSO, is looking for people to volunteer to teach Girl Scouts how to knit, so if you’re in the area and you’re interested, give her a call. Thanks!

Dear Alison:

Finished the (my) first of your shawls (it is blocking as I write) and I cannot tell you how gorgeous I think it is – and how elegant your design is. As is usual with lace, you can’t really see it well until it is blocked, but I am now/again so impressed with the beauty of your lace combinations. I can hardly wait to start my next one… now all I have to do is decide which of your beautiful designs to do next!
