On the third Monday of the month a group of enthusiastic knitters meet in the Resource Room at the Duxbury Free Library. From 6:00 - 8:00 you can find knitters of various skill levels with yarn between their fingers. We would love you to join us. If you can't, follow us here!

Knitted With Love

Working in a library with wonderful people is great. . . when some of those wonderful people are also knitters . . . well, can it get any better?! There is always someone around when you get stuck on a pattern, need advice, share yarn with . . . and of course show a completed project to. 

Suzanne has been quietly knitting in the staff room for the past few weeks making a 'stuffie' for her son. Luckily I was working today when she brought in the completed project. I confess that I didn't know exactly what . . . or rather who . . . he is . . . but then I also confess that I am not a Star Wars fan. (Suzanne however has a really awesome Star Wars pocketbook. Even I . . . the non-Star Wars fan . . . acknowledge the cuteness of it!)

He is Admiral Ackbar. But more importantly he is the cutest, softest, cuddliest thing. Just looking at him gives you that warm fuzzy feeling that a hand crafted gift gives you. That feeling you get knowing someone thinks enough of you to spend their free time creating a gift just for you. (And let's face it, when short rows and embroidery are involved, someone flat out loves you!).

I wish you could squeeze him like I did. 

I had to share him with you. 

Until next time, keep your nose in a book or your fingers in fiber.
