This should be a thing. We bring our kids to work – why not siblings. Well, I don’t know if brothers would want to do this. And I digress.
I visited my sister last weekend with two goals in mind (other than the obvious of seeing her and her family).

Friday we set off with a full day planed. I had no idea that Harrisville Designs was way in the middle of nowhere.
This was a win-win in so many ways. I knit all the live long day. She drove and got to check in on some of her customers and bring Christmas gifts. I was able to visit/shop a number of gift shops which is always fun.
We were delighted that the cashier was knitting. It was like visiting Sturbridge Village and having people in costume, very appropriate.
Performed a gauge check. Sadly her gauge was too tight on Caught in the Rigging, and she had to rip it out and begin again. She is one tough broad, ripped it out and didn’t look back.
I did some last minute sewing on the shrug she was wearing to a holiday party (minutes before we both had to leave). It’s what we do. I remember, years ago, her knitting/finishing a sweater I was knitting for my husband – while he and I were out to dinner. When we came back I was able to gift him the finished sweater. We are pinch knitters. 😉
