Who are these people? They just kept coming up to our table and sitting down! 🙂
This is a photo of half of our Stitch ‘n Bitch table last night. These are the 6 “newbies” who were there. The 5 “old timers” are sitting on the other side of the table. We also have 3 “old timers” who were missing last night. Our group is growing! Pretty soon we’ll take over de Jaren completely on Monday nights! It’s so nice to see that even with this horrible weather people still want to come out and knit.
To be honest I almost didn’t go myself. G. sent an email saying she wouldn’t be there. A. was packing for his trip to the U.S. C. is still in the U.S. I called N. and asked if she was going and minutes later M. called me to ask the same thing. No one wants to go out in such storms if no one else is either.
M. wanted to make sure that I would be there because she had a present for me. I was so curious what it could be! A present? For ME? Well, when I got to de Jaren she reminded me of the time I brought her a bottle of Kayro Syrup. She couldn’t find it for sale anywhere. I found some at a deli on the Leidsestraat and brought it to her. This was a year ago. I had completely forgotten about that. Totally and completely. She reminded me that she wanted it so that she could make pecan pie. This last weekend she made it again and brought me 2 perfect small pecan tarts. What a treat! If you want pecan pie in this country you have to make it yourself. THANK YOU!!
I’m sitting here on my couch, on the tv AZ is playing football, DB is sitting with his computer on his lap and I’m doing the same. We’re eating pecan tarts and listening to the wind howl outside. It must surely be November.
