Happy Hour KAL with Marie Greene of Olive Knits

Here in the Pacific Northwest our favorite pre-Pandemic outings were for Happy Hour. Typically offered between 3 – 5 PM, meeting a friend for Happy Hour was often the most looked-forward-to date on the calendar. It meant meeting at a favorite local haunt to share a tasty bite to eat and maybe a glass of wine (at a discount!). For me, Happy Hour is about stepping away from the stresses of the day to savor the last bits of daylight with a friend.

We may be finding new ways to connect these days, but we can still mark those hours from 3-5 once in a while to connect with our favorite people. What time shall we meet for Happy Hour? Choose 3 PM, 4 PM, or 5 PM by selecting the same number of pattern repeats on your yoke.
