It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I type this news. I received a letter in the mail the other day that our LYS The Needleworks is closing. We always had a great time whenever us knitters got together. Our knit nights were Thursdays and then during the holidays it was lessened to once a month. I took that news with great sadness because it was a time for me to get out and have fellowship with my fellow knitters, and the only time I could get to the store to make purchases as other times they were closed by the time Kris got home from work and was able to take me.
I hope this doesn't mean that those wonderful friendships that were formed will go by the wayside. Maybe we can go on and do a knit night at various knitters houses. I for one would definitely open my doors for this event. Being that spring and summer are here we can also sit outdoors and knit. Let us all get together in an email and discuss this.
Since next Thursday will be our last knit night together I would like to get a little farewell/new beginnings party going. I will be glad to bring the cake. Lots of icing Ann? I'll get a group email going.
So with this sadness I hope that new happiness can be found among our fellow knitters as I know many are crying over this.
