you've been volunteered

My niece was drafted into being photo assistant and subject for some swift dramatic lighting tests just before the models and their fab fiber designs posed at Make Mine Local last Friday night in Boston .( I'll show and tell them tomorrow. Or maybe the next day.)
It's not that she minded helping me out for the night. She just didn't have any choice.

I know how she feels. My neighbors have decided we will have a knitting group and I will teach them how to knit worsted weight socks. Or ....whatever. This has been the buzz on the beach, half jokingly , for the last few summers, that we'll have a knitting society in the fall. Never happens. Just found out I've been drafted, Thursday night is our first gathering.

Not that I mind.

Still time to enter the giveaway for the Harry Potter audio book. Go ahead, leave me a comment here.

Oh, a knitting group with your neighbours sounds nice! I don't even know my neighbours. Well, apart from the lady upstairs who claims we're really noisy at night when in fact we're tucked up in bed.

Worsted weight socks, huh? That should go fast enough so if it's not fun at least it won't last long.

Worsted Weight socks? Sounds warm.

Good luck with the knitting group. It sounds like lots of fun.

Hey! Your niece (she's gorgeous, btw) was only "volunteered" for a light test. You've been volunteered by the neighbors for a lifetime! Good luck teaching everyone how to knit. Hopefully, you'll find some helpers among the bunch! You're a good soul, Gale.

Lovely head shots of your niece. Worsted weight socks could be nice Xmas stockings! There's a new knitting group starting around here too, I hope it lasts.
