We usually have a lot of fun at our monthly meetings. I sometimes wonder what others think of all the laughing that is going on inside the library meeting room. July was no exception as far as the laughter goes.
What was unusual was that someone had donated to the library lots of bags of yarn. And I mean LOTS. Trashbag size. Many bags. The teen knitting group that meets at the library on Thursdays had gone through and nicely organized the yarn and picked out some for themselves, the previous week.
At the beginning of the meeting I told them I was going to bring in some yarn for the the group to go through. It took well over an hour for everyone to have a chance to get through the yarn and make their selections.
It was nice to hear that some were going to make some items that they will donate to help others. Kind of a pay it forward. Possibly baby afghans for the hospitals, who knows what else these talented ladies will come up with.
A few of the ladies had already left by the time I went to get my camera but the rest agreed to line up for a picture if I would not post full body shots of them crawling around on the floor. It seems most of us are not fond of our behinds.
Partly what amazed us was so much was donated and they were expensive yarns. There were lots of different types that we had never tried knitting or crocheting with. It will be exciting to see what the ladies do with some of them. I will be glad to post some pictures of the ones they bring to the upcoming meetings. Maybe some of them will post comments of their projects they are going to be working on from some of this yarn.
