I don't know about you, but meeting new people almost paralyzes me. Once I'm in my seat, I can start chatting away and I don't have any problem. It's that first, "Hello, I'm ...." that nearly makes me crawl into the smallest hiding space I can find. Seriously. It has been very easy to hide behind the blog.
So...it takes a pretty friendly person to just say to me: "Meet you there." No questions, just boom, there it is. So meet Deb, the first person to yank me out from behind the blog:
I know! Isn't she funny?
(Sorry Deb - I maybe should've taken another picture? Chris has a much better one.) So, I met Deb in August, much to my delight. Then, Chris had a little work break and I had a family break and she thought I should meet them for lunch at the 318. (Gulp) Okay, I knew Deb, I practically knew Chris from her blog, I could venture out again. So look what I gained from taking a chance! I got to meet Chris, Val and Kelly!
Isn't it nice to see her lovely smile? Those are some lucky kitties! Even though you have to go back to work, I'm so glad you are healthy again.
This is Val - she has a really cute blog and she works at an excellent sock enabling website! Y4S is carrying that Auracania Ranco, which I am really kind of loving right now. Val and Kelly were going to brave the Mall of America after the yarn store. Brave girls! (I am telling you right now, they are waaaay younger than I am - they can handle the MOA.) She is knitting with some Lime & Violet yarn, the colors were really pretty.
This is Kelly. Hi Kelly! She was knitting with some yarn that she really hated, so I didn't take a picture of it. She is blog-free, but she likes to visit so say hi!
Remember I mentioned that Ranco yarn? How pretty is this? We went across the street to Coldwater Collaborative and this little gem made it's way into my bag.
It was a really fun afternoon, and possibly the longest "lunch" I've had in years!
More pr0n to come!
HA HA HA! Sounds like a lovely lunch, though and nice new knitty friends.
