Babes with Balls and Chicks with Sticks
This is the blog of 4 women in their 50's and one babe in her late 40's. She is a wannabe 50. We call her Susan. The babes in their 50's are Suzanne, who is originally from France, Jane, who is originally from Massachusetts, Ellen, originally a Long Island girl, Debbie, Jane's older sister, and young Susan, originally from upstate NY. We all met at a Montessori school in the mid south about 12 years ago give and take a few. Most of us just met Debbie about a month ago except for Jane. Jane and Debbie share care of Carolyn's mom (Carolyn, by the way, is their baby sister). We got together for a few "girls" weekends and finally decided to join together as a knit group. We all have a bit of creativity on varying levels with Jane on the top of the list. So this blog is going to be a journey for all of us, exploring knitting, friendship, aging (sorry Susan, you too!!!), men, and whatever else life throws us. Yet we all hold it together, by knitting. Chicks with Sticks alias is Babes with Balls---of yarn.
