the sub-outing

Five of us headed for Northampton, MA, yesterday afternoon, ostensibly to enjoy a movie and singalong with the Young At Heart Chorus. But apparently we were also there to meet fun knitters, one of whom was kind enough to sit right behind us in the theater and keep the pre-show wait time lighthearted. I brought along a project to knit during the wait time, but didn't ever pull it out of the bag because I was busy chatting. :-)

Another knitter was a little further away, spotted from across the theater by Jesse, also friendly and fun when Leah popped over to say hi.

Then we were at the science/toy store to buy yo-yo supplies for two yo-yo-crazed boys, followed by most excellent Chinese food, where Leah noticed the handknit sweater on the woman at the next table and Jesse noticed the wooden needles sticking out of her bag. (I would've Kinneared her bag w/ needles, but the camera was in the car.) When she was getting ready to leave, she noticed Leah's Sylvi and the next thing you know, there's another quick and friendly knitterly conversation going on.

Fortified by some fudge for the ride home, we all waved hi to Webs as we drove by. Didn't stop there on this visit, but given how much good stuff goes on for all ages and interests in awesome Northampton, there's no doubt that we'll be back soon.

Northampton is so much fun. Have you ever eaten at Paul and Elizabeth's. Actually, all the restaurants are pretty good.

Yikes, I never would have been able to go to that town without going to Webs. I just love the place. I live 3 1/2 hrs. away so I can only go occasionally.
