Hi everybody! We did have a good time, didn’t we? I got home just in time for my “date” last night with DH.
Let’s see … I have a couple of pictures here somewhere, but I need to get in the shower & get to church. I’ll try & post them later. I think there’s one of KK and Hildie, and then one of Vicki & [size=2]the other[/size]Julie (hee hee).
I have to say it was really nice to hang out with a bunch of ladies who actually knew what I was talking about when I would say something like “Booga Bag.” And Dee (Licensed2Cook) @ the LYS was sooo nice to teach me a new way to do the long-tail cast on where I don’t ever run out of tail. Thanks Dee! :waving:
Hmmm … what else did we learn yesterday? Oh! We found out that Julie can eat as much as 10 sailors and still remain as thin as a stick :doh:; Kelly & Hildie can stay up most of the night drinking wine, arrive fashionably late, and still be nice people; Vicki is almost as tall as my 10-year-old and as cute as a button; and Suzie is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet from the East coast! Oh, and I learned that – in theory – I’m old enough to be Suzie’s and Hilde’s Mom! :?eyebrow:
I can’t wait to do this again!! I think we were talking about meeting in Long Grove next time, weren’t we? We haven’t set a date, but maybe sometime the end of Aug or beginning of Sept would be good. Maybe I’ll have my shawl-made-out-of-hair 1/10th of the way done by then.
Oh, and Hilde: Thank you so much for the yummy Fruit Munchies! They’re almost gone! I have to find some more around here somewhere.
Finally, I was so happy to meet all of you, and it was really hard to say goodbye! I can’t wait to meet up again. I reallly think we ought to KIP next time, though. It was just too busy in the restaurant yesterday what with Julie running back up to the grill all those times and all. [size=2]Obligatory Disclaimer: I’m just kidding, really.[/size]
Happy knitting, everyone!!!
