Last night my wonderful, fabulous, fantanstic Texas knitting friends threw me a going away party. I figured we'd all get together and knit like always and I'd bring a cake, but I was surprised by many sweet gifts too. It was wonderful! Everyone had taken time to find beautiful yarns they knew I'd like, my friend Suna even found a list of patterns that would be perfect for the yarn she gave me (and she wore purple in my honor!!) Suzanne sewed me a beautiful project bag with various purple fabrics, Aggie sewed me a sock needle holder, Susan gave me flowers, Kim even hand spun me some beautiful purple and pink fibers. Dawn laughed and said they had to coordinate because she had almost gotten me the same colorway, and she gave me a skein of yarnorama's color of the month. I was so touched that so many people like me enough to not only come to a party in my honor but to spend the time to make me gifts or to pick out something perfect for me. I have such wonderful friends and I am going to miss them so much!! I will be coming back to visit (probably for a long weekend this winter when I'm freezing my ass off in snowy MI) and I hope we can all get together when I come down.
Keep in touch, my friends! I will miss you all!!!!
