Tomorrow my friend Maja leaves our town to go far and away, across an ocean and will not be back for a whole year. She had a little farewell after work today at a pub and we were all there to mingle and laugh and eventually say goodbye. I had my knitting with me of course, to keep me from tearing up completely, and I was seated next to other knitters and craftswomen.
I wish Maja to have a good year and to discover a lot of new things and have a really marvelous time. I also gave her a goodbye gift, something to do on the long plane ride.
Obviously it was a skein of merino in a color that I think Maja will appreciate. She is a knitter and what better gift to give to a knitter than yarn?
I will miss her terribly but eventually she will be back and we can all knit together again.
