An Evening with Betty
I haven't been able to spend hardly any time with my good friend Betty for at least a year and a half. She was one of the first people I met when we moved here 42 years ago. She's had a sad year (near end of linked post if you want to know), but is starting to want to do things again.
She didn't want me to take her picture, but agreed that her hands were ok. And that was what we were using- our hands. She is knitting a blanket.
I'm working on Loretta's green shawl. It's the next project up on my list, and I had barely made a beginning, but got a good bit done tonight. It's going to work up quite fast, which is great!
It was a cold and damp day- felt more like December than April. Maggie and I walked out back, but didn't see anything more interesting than the handcrafts. Besides, it was really nice to visit with Betty... it's been a long time.
