Lana is so cute!
Lana and I missed each other at the last Illinois knit-together, so she and I met today at the LYS I didn't realize she was so knowledgable... not just about knitting, about EVERYTHINGGGGGGGG! :-) Lana was wearing this gorgeous was-gonna-be-a-sweater- VEST she made.... I saw the owner of the LYS eyeing it up jealously

I can't say enough how this website has brought me new friends. If there are people from KH *anywhere* near you, you really owe it to yourself to try and meet them... It's amazing how "pulling loops through other loops" enhances your quality of life: not just in the act of doing it, but in the people it brings together.


*wipes a tear*

CUTE???
That preception is through the eyes for someone who spent the entire week with Jr High kids. :thinking:

Hildie is a doll, and I do like dolls. I'm flattered that she would postpone going home on a Friday just to meet me. This was fun for me, and I didn't even have knitting with me. I love knitting, and getting together with other knitters makes it even more enjoyable.
Thanks a bunch Hildie!

I am so glad that you ladies had fun!
So far Brendajos and I are planning on meeting in a couple of weeks I can't wait! Hearing all these great get-together stories makes me even more excited.

No one lives near me except when I'm at home..which is never! *pout* Oh, well. Maybe over the summer! If any of you would want to meet up with an immature punk-a** kid, that is...

Well, if I can ever get my sh*t together and make the trip to Rochester, we will definitely meet. And I'll bring my punka** kid who knits, too. She is loads of fun. Really.

Hehehe. I don't know NY, so I don't know how far you are. I only know Rochester, Buffalo, Ithaca, and Binghamton in relation to here.
