I got to debut my little bolero at the second meeting of our new Prince George Stitch n' Bitch last Sunday, and, bonus, had Stuart take a few pictures! This is definitely a wearable little piece of clothing, but I can see I need to stretch out of my boring wardrobe a little more. Stuart thinks it looks a little funny over my big belly, but I don't care. I love it. The leaf shawl pin I'm using was a gift from Ruth, when we visited her this past summer. I really, really enjoy wearing things that hold special memories, and this item is surely one of them.
The SNB was really good, again. This time there were a few different people there, one of whom is a carpenter by trade. This sparked a really interesting conversation on women in trades, which I found fascinating. I'm intrigued by the whole issue, and have seriously thought about pursuing an electrical apprenticeship once Liam is old enough. I was certainly given some great food for thought, which was just what I went for. Intelligent adult conversation, plus knitting time - what could be better?
