So there we were, last night, sitting and knitting, as per usual with one exception: Gordon. Having read about us in the Wood River Press (edition of 11/25/10) he was eager to join up with kindred souls.
Of course we wanted a show-and-tell. He'd fortunately brought a pair of mitts and a hat of his own design, from yarn spun by his mother from locally-raised fiber animals.
Yesterday he worked on a scarf of mixed-fiber, Kool-Aid dyed (by himself) yarn (spun by his mother). He told us he learned to knit five years ago, while recovering from surgery.
When not knitting, he works at a convenience store in town and is in the National Guard. We hope he'll become a regular member of the Langworthy Library Knitting Association!
