How far would you go to a knitting event? Today I drove a total of 120 miles, round trip, to be a part of a “do” in Sacramento under the shade trees in the park at the Capital building. A group of us intrepid knitters sat in a circle working on our various projects, gossiping about everything and anything, watching the busloads of tourists with their cameras running to catch their ride. We kind of laughed at that, wondering what kind of sights would someone see in Sacramento, and it was deduced that this must be a multiple city tour they were on! The weather was surprisingly pleasant and since the original plan to meet on the steps of the building was usurped by a McDonald’s sponsored event with microphones and people in suits and chairs and clapping hordes, the venue was modified to the northwest corner of the grounds underneath the mature trees. Except for the seating arrangements
(my wide behind didn’t protect me from the hard ground!), it turned out to be a better locale. I was actually able to park my car within 50 feet of where we were. That’s impressive for downtown Sacramento.
As for driving the 120 miles for two hours of yarn communing, because of my remote location, I do close to that kind of traveling every week for my grocery shopping. Living in the forest of the Sierra Nevada mountain range has its drawbacks, but they’re so worth it!
How did you spend your day?
