2. WIPs: Larch Cardigan (I thought I lost my buttons! Turns out I may be losing my marbles, but let's hope that I haven't lost all of them), Darjeeling Socks and Botanical Garden Shawl (a test knit for Kristen Finlay of Skein Yarns).

Swatch and Learn 
Thank you so much for the donations for the fledgling knitting club. I also read aloud the final draft of "Lessons in Sticks and String," which is a little different from the one I originally posted.



Thanks for listening! 
"Diaspora" by Glykeria (English Translation)

Smirni (was a Greek City in Turkey), Canada
Ah!You have left far away
I hurt!

One headed for Australia
the other very young boarded the ship
Turks and Greeks in Germany
(working) all day and night in the factories!
Building a new society

Diaspora
it was worth the crop
Yes!
My soul is moving
It makes more seeds!

One, washing dishes in Astoria (New York)
The other a captain on the ships
Greek young people neglected
build the ruins
They worked for you and I!
