This weekend reaffirmed my growing understanding that sometimes it’s a good thing to do scary things. I met up with a blogging friend and a few of her friends for a crafting weekend. Meeting new people is intimidating for me, and given the extended nature of the plans, it could have gone very wrong if we didn’t hit it off. Thankfully that was not the case and today has been SUPER fun! Since she’s from out of town, I had to take her to my favorite LYS, Yarn Social.
And my bag of projects broke while I was walking up to my hotel room, so of course I had to get a new bag. And a little bit of new yarn maybe. And a pin. Whatever. It’s a rainbow sheep, of course I’m gonna buy it.
I originally had no purple yarn picked out. Instead, I had two pretty blues. Then I saw this gradient set hanging by the counter and well, you know how it goes. At least I put one of the blue ones back? I also will come home with a new project bag because my new buddy is super nice and made me a gift!
Isn’t that the cutest?? And oh yeah, we spent the day knitting and talking and laughing, and watching HGTV and a little bit of football (not by my choice but it was fine) and there was the cutest baby that I didn’t have to be responsible for. There was junk food and maybe a little alcohol and pizza. Tonight I get to sleep in a big bed all by myself. But mostly it was fun to hang out with like-minded people. I’m just so so glad I was brave enough to come. So the next time you’re apprehensive about doing something, maybe just do it?
Looks like you has a fab time. Love the purples too.
I’m so glad you had such a good time. I did something yesterday and I’m going to blog about it in a minute. Also thank you for introducing me to those rad pins!
I am so glad we finally met and had a great knitting weekend. In the car we all congratulated ourselves because we made a friend this weekend, and it is so hard to make new friends as adults. You are great, and I can’t wait to get together again.
ME TOO!! I was thinking about how when you meet new people there’s usually like a waiting period before you feel comfortable with them, and I just feel like I fell right in with all of you. I’m just so relieved and grateful that we did it & that it went well! Knitting is the BEST.
Yaaay I’m so glad you had a good time! I know how scary something like that can be, but it usually turns out amazing 😀
And thank goodness, because it could have been really awkward otherwise! 😀
That’s a fun project bag, how sweet of your friend! Also, I am really looking forward to seeing what you decide to do with the purple gradient yarn. It’s really pretty. I’m glad the weekend was a success!
Me too!! I haven’t even started searching for a pattern for the gradient yet–maybe that will be my January treat knitting!
That sounds like so much fun. Cute babies that you’re not responsible for are the best.
Almost as good as dogs! 😉
