Freak Show

Well that's what it felt like.

Last evening the Nutty Knitters had an impromptu get together - in a pub.  We took ourselves down to a lovely pub settled in at a nice table, ordered drinks and got out our knitting.

We were chatting, laughing and probably rather noisy.  We shared projects, looked at books, talked about patterns.  We talked about life, children and knitting.  

One of the girls from the kitchen came out for a quick chat.  A knitter herself she came to see what we were doing.  

Occasionally my ears would pick up on odd words from the bar staff.  The couple on the table next to us were......................well to be polite were interested.

The was an odd situation with a group of 'youngsters' who came and sat at a table next to us for 5 or 10 minutes and then make a rather unpleasant exit.

Yet it was a wonderful evening.  I felt as if we were in our knitting bubble and although aware of what was going on around us it really didn't matter.  We were far more interested in our shared obsession and growing friendships.  

Thanks girls for a great evening.
