The Non Knitting Group

Last night, after almost 3 months of a knit meeting hiatus, and a year since we last made it outside the building for a meal, my work knitting group met up for dinner.

Well technically we were a (wo)man down. Ms. DA has been out recovering from knee surgery much longer than we had all hoped, and she had a family function to attend.

We went to Citizen's Band which is:
  • Close to work
  • Close to public trans (for those that commute this way)
  • Fun with nice staff, tasty comfort food -- something for everyone
A good time was had by all. We shared a bottle of white wine, an Asparagus & Caesar salad with soft egg, Poutine with Pork Belly, Fried Chicken and sauteed greens and biscuit, Grilled Cheese and Creamy Tomato soup and a Chocolate Mousse Cake with Caramel & Sea Salt drizzled on top.

In between cramming some tasty post-work eats in our mouths.
  • We caught up on our lives as they are Shing is transitioning to owning her life and time again after nursing her sister through a health issue and she's just about to tackle her annual non profit event. 
  • We talked about travel plans. HC is up next for a whirlwind back to the east coast!) 
  • Told candid stories and confessions. (I still think older sisters get a bad rep! And I'm not sure which one SDS is!) 
  • And of course we talked knitting!  I pulled out the Colour Affection in progress, Lu passed around potential pattern print-outs and lamented her Boyfriend Sweater story. She had never heard of the curse of the Boyfriend Sweater! Obviously she needs to read some knitting blogs ;)
As the evening came to a close, we reminded each other how nice this is. It seems everyone is almost too busy at work to consistently meet to knit, even once a week. It's also hard without our sunshine and knitting task master DA.
