Due to my ex, I won't be able to make it today. Someone send me pics and give me details! Hopefully on the next get together I'll be able to come. Have fun and get lots of great yarn!

I'm so SAD that all of you can't come today!

Maybe next time, we can plan further ahead, and have more people come.

But, for now, the few of us that CAN meet will be thinking of you, and having a toast in your honor at Starbucks. Even though it won't be alcohol, it will be a drink.

My sweet hubby has also given us a treat. Coupons for FREE CHICKEN SANDWICHES at Chick-Fil-A!!!!

Well, I'd better hit the road, so I can make it up to the north side of town in time to get Bear, then head back down to the south side of town to meet the rest of you! If you don't see me, give me a call. As you know, I'm a slow driver, so I might be held up in traffic.

See you all in a couple hours!!!!

Yes Melissa, we DID have fun, didn't we?
It was very nice meeting my twin

The four of us met at Barnes & Noble as we planned. We looked at magazines and books, drank Starbucks and talked, bought one book and one magazine, then hit the road for the yarn store!

We certainly had fun looking at yarn and patterns and knitting needles! Everyone got their yarn fix, and enjoyed talking and spending time together. It was a very nice day!

We even had time to do some discount yarn shopping at a couple craft stores as well!! And everyone enjoyed their free Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, courtesy of my sweet hubby.

When we got back to Barnes and Noble to say goodbye, we were all sad to leave. I definitely felt tears coming on, and I noticed some wet eyes on the others as well.

It's so nice to have new friends in our town to knit with!! I can't wait to have another get-together!!!!

I hope the three of you don't mind, but I'm posting photos of you here, because they all look lovely!!! (I originally said that I would have you all approve them before posting.)

Lissalue had her VERY FIRST visit to a yarn store today, and she was in yarn heaven. Can't you see the glow in her eyes?


Lestrella showed us her beautiful scarf, which is still on the needles, as well as some GORGEOUS handmade doll clothes!! She is so talented!


Babybear was right at home at the yarn shop, and left us in the dust as she chose just the right yarn for her knitting projects. She's a pro at this!


I was very happy with my haul today. A new pattern book by Patons, the latest issue of Piecework magazine, and three more skeins of Debbie Bliss Pure Silk. Eventually, I will have enough of that yarn to make the Nicole Camisole & Panty set by White Lies Design. I joked with everyone that I will probably have enough yarn to make the lingerie when I turn 80!


Babybear and Lissalue completely surprised me with presents! Two skeins of beautiful Jojoland Melody 100% Wool sock yarn from Lissalue, and a box of yummy Celestial Seasonings "Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride" tea from Babybear. Thank you both so much!

Here's another view of my new sock yarn!
