“A new idea comes suddenly and in a rather intuitive way. But, intuition is nothing but the outcome of earlier intellectual experience.” Albert Einstein
From thinking about Christmas stockings, my mind led me to the idea of Friendship stockings. For 2008, I have invited seven friends/acquaintances to join me on the first Sunday afternoon each month to knit our own Friendship stockings and enjoy a time of positive support, laughter, and idea sharing. In November, we will have a potluck and each bring a friendship gift for each of the others stockings – small handmade gifts from our hands and hearts. Throughout the year, we will be able to get to know each other, gather new ideas, and be a support for those in the group. I encourage you to invite a few friends/acquaintances to join you for a Friendship stocking group. Since the stockings are as big as Christmas stockings, and you only have to knit one, there is lots of room for creative expression. And we all need good friends around us – this is the chance to form bonds of friendship with those who come to your group.
