Wool & Company is a *b*e*a*u*t*i*f*u*l* spacious knitters wonderland in the quaint hamlet of Geneva, IL. The shop is in the historic downtown area... on Third Street... just south of Rte 38. Sunday afternoon (3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.) is a wonderful "KTog" where MWK's very own Patchworkjester (the handsome male with the shaved head in the picture)... PaxKnitter (the other handsome male with the dark hair and beard in the picture)... and moi (the remaing male in the photograph) are known to frequent. Also pictured are two phenomenal ladies... Amy (who finished her very first scarf that night!! 7 feet long and beautiful... picture attached) and Beth (who, in addition to being an accomplished knitter, is an amazingly peace-filled and loving woman that I have the honor to work with in the E.R.). This was my second Knit Together in one week where the men outnumbered the women!!

At 6:00 p.m. we headed south on Third Street a couple blocks to "Studio 318" a lucious coffee and chocolate lounge where we continued our knitting and enjoyed a decadently rich chocolate fondue until their closing at 8:00 p.m.

Knitting? Coffee? Chocolate Fondue? Companionship in knitting? says he, as he heads for Heathrow airport for a flight to Chicago, and thence to Geneva...

In my dreams, of course. I can't just get up and go like that, tempting though it is - but your description really appealed!

Now it is back to a Christmas scarf for a friend - although the colours she requested make it look more like a fall scarf. Never mind, it's still knitting...

What a handsome bunch! I am so jealous, there is nothing like that anywhere within a reasonable distance of where I live. One of the draw backs of living in a rural area.

Some of us do drive just about an hour to get to that yarn shop... we are kind of "out in the sticks" here in McHenry, IL but an hour is nothing... especially when you can share the ride with a knitting buddy!

That sounds way fun. :-) All three guys are definitely handsome!
