Last night for the first time EVER I actually met a KH’er in REAL LIFE.
You can imagine all the apprehension and silly nervousness that comes with meeting a complete stranger face-to-face after only exchanging lines and lines of text (and laughs and patterns and…) for weeks. I laugh at myself even now thinking how I beamed and grinned at no less than 3 people who came in to the store fitting FK’s description. “Is that her??! I wonder if there’s knitting in that bag??!” “How do I make myself look like a knitter who’s waiting to meet another knitter??” - :doh: Too silly.
What a TREAT!! We met at a bookstore near both of us (I’m visiting my sister for a few days) with our knitting in tow.
I can hardly express how ultra cool it is to meet someone new and then sit for hours (literally) talking about yarn, knitting, work, yarn, knitting, books, knitting, life…you get the drift.
Just want to say publicly [size=6]THANKS FK !! [/size]for being brave enough to reach out to a fellow knitter and for suggesting something that turned out to be FUN. :cheering: One of the highlights for me was seeing your knitting talents up close… You Go Girl! Looking forward to our Knit Night II whenever we’re able.
It’s totally uplifting to know that through our “hobby” we can connect to perfectly normal :D, unscary, kind, interesting, talented people out there and that you can meet them for the first time and chat away like old friends.
Has anyone else met a KH’er and bonded over knitting? I’d love to hear about it.
