50 Years of Friendship


YesterdayRose and I spent the day celebrating our friendship of 50 years. Yes...it's true ...we met in first grade 50 years ago this September. We began the morning with a large breakfast and much talk about our lives. I actually remember the first time I met Rose; she was wearing a dark plaid dress with a white collar. She is a dear friend who exemplifies the saying:

Make new friends, but keep the old;

One is silver and the other gold.

On the knitting front: Kristen asked what I'm submitting to the Big E. I've sent in my Shapely Shawlette, Lizard Socks and a skein of spindlespun yarn.

I 'm close to finishing another shawlette for the fall.

You and Rose are blessed to have such a long friendship! I'm looking forward to seeing your submissions in person someday, especially the shapely shawlette.
