A ball in hand is worth two in the stash

This ancient proverb refers back to mediaeval knittery where a ball in the hand (the wool) was a valuable asset to be turned into fabulous fashion pieces and home decor statements; they are certainly more valuable than the two in the bush (the stash) as these are probably just the subject of pattern fantasy and agents of dust collection.

If we are well behaved and feeling adventurous, we may well move from The Empress to Entice Dessert Lounge (http://www.enticedessertlounge.com) as the evening wears on!

      Elle! Those idiots will be sorry when you're gone. But good thing there are headhunters aplenty who want you! Glad to know the knitwits and your family (fur babies included) will get to see more of you!

    Sorry not to have made it last night. After a few really wet cycle commutes that day I couldn't find the energy to get my body up and out again. Can't wait to meet the new people! See you next Thursday.

    Sorry to say that I'm still too ill to come out and play. :( I was hoping I might be able to come for at least a little while, but no. Hope everyone has a wonderful time. :)

      Like Sam, I was thinking you might be being a wee bit ambitious to come out so soon. Rest up and take good care. Watch out for those pesky muppets that might be drawing your portrait! (flu hallucinations are the best!) Take care Amy. xo

      Actually on second thoughts. I'm going to stick to wine. I'm really not liking the aussie beer gut look :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
