Real and Imaginary Friends

I have my first, actual, real-life knitting circle friends as of today. [Hi, new friends!] A mom from our preschool found me on Ravelry and invited me to her monthly group. We hadn't said more than hello all the school year — but, after she recognized my avatar in a local Ravelry group, she sent me a nice note. You know when you meet up with one of your imaginary online friends it's as if you've always known that person. Well, it was like that, but even better, because they live in my town!!!! The night had all the best things: good food, funny stories, sad stories, felting lessons, and best of all, good folk. I worked on my Vintage Vertical Stripe afghan — only thirty or forty more rows to go. See that copyright date on this old photo — 2006! It's been a long time coming.

If you haven't signed up for Ravelry, I apologize for all the linkage. Now go over there and sign up for an invite, so you can make some friends, be they real or imagined.

It's was fun meeting you at knit night. Let's make cheese!!! I like being an imaginary friend. I am going to imagine we are chatting over earl grey tea and croissants right now! Have a fun Saturday, Mary Beth

Yay for imaginary friends! And I have to start a vintage strip blanket. One of these days.

I hope this doesn't sound too terrible, but I am so glad you haven't finished your blanket yet! ;) I figure I have about 20 rows to go and just can't seem to get to it to finish it yet, so you've made me very happy today! I'm also happy you've made some "real" friends instead of "imaginary" ones! Okay, enough teasing now :D
