At the back of the store there was a knitting group. I fell into conversation with the store owner and she invited me to come back today to join the group.
One of the group was Bob, a prolific knitter.He was only too happy to pose with these socks he had knitted for himself complete with bling.
A very friendly group who talked about anything and everything. At one stage the store owner had to come and remind them that they were not there to talk about medical issues (yes, the conversation had drifted that way) but they were there for knitting. Thankfully the group stayed on track after that gentle reminder.
