What a great day for you--a fun outing with other knitters (people that "get" the whole knitting thing!) and getting a compliment on something you made!!! That's great!!!
I was in the yarn isle at Hobby Lobby one day, wearing a hat I knitted and a full-length knitted sweater that I had bought, and a lady stopped me and asked me if I made my "beautiful sweater". I told her no way, that I was too chicken to knit a fitted garment
, but that I did
knit my hat. She said, "Oh, I would've never
guessed you made that hat...it looks so hard!" I was laughing because in my opinion, that sweater would've been a billion times harder for me to do than my hat!
