Knitting

Watercolor Wednesday | Wine & Knitting.

…I was sure I must’ve blogged about this at some point, but I just did a quick search and didn’t find it. Maybe it was all just for “wordless” Wednesday?

In any event, my sister and I have been meeting every Wednesday evening for years. We open a bottle of wine, fix a light snack (popcorn is a sure favorite, but if Katie joins us we can manage a full vegetable plate and hummus) … and knit… and talk. Until the wine or the talk runs out (the wine nearly always wins that race).

I get choked up just typing this when I think about the joys and tears we’ve shared over all that time. It was a highlight of my mama-life when Katie started to join us last fall. Chalk up another one for knitting (and for wine!) – it’s cross-generational.

We mostly rotate houses. This week was Karen’s turn to host (which meant just two of us – Katie isn’t venturing out that far this late in the day with Charlie just yet). Karen’s the green thumb in our generation and I love the view onto her deck with pots full of living things! She opened a delicious grenache/syrah/mourvedre blend. and popped corn. and we talked. about everything. and about nothing. Really…the stuff of life and especially (these days for all three of us!) motherhood.

Special, treasured times. for which I am beyond grateful. xo!
