Knitting love

 

 

I have returned from a long weekend of knitting love. I was one of the ones lucky enough to be chosen to go to St Louis for the Loopy Ewe’s Spring Fling. What a wonderful time we had. The weather was great, not a sprinkle the whole time. And of course the company was the best in the world. I’m usually a pretty introverted person, but I got to tell you, I was talking up a storm the whole time. My poor vocal cords need a rest now. One of the knitting blogs I read, her niece was doing a flat Stanley. So I took it with me. I’m sure the kids won’t know who these super stars of knitting are but I’m betting the Aunt will.

 

Her is Wendy Johnson from Wendy knits.

And then there was Anne Hanson from knitspot.

I think everyone had a wonderful time and I’m hoping I can go again next year.

I guess it wasn't you who took the pic of me kissing Flat Stanley. Probably just as well. ;-)

Hi there,
You have a very amusing Site. : ) I got a kick out of the Christmas story about your mother (taking all the credit), but roared about the black man in jail pic. The Gilda Radner clip was hilarious. I have SO much hair, that once, in the 80's, I was told I looked like her. Ha-ha.
