Knitty Friends!

I've been pretty fortunate to be able to meet so many of my online knitty friends in real life! With sock summit coming (8 more sleeps!), I'm going to get to meet a few more too! And this past Sunday, I was able to spend the afternoon with none other than this lady.....

Sounds like so much fun! Have a great time at SS!

Bezzie said...

I didn't recognize Weeze with her head!

What fun!

Jen said...

Can't wait for Sock Summit!

Discoknits said...

Her skirt is gorgeous - will check out her project page :0). And can you imagine wearing those shoes after all that running - that's stamina right there.

I think I voted for the green & brown yarn (of course!).

Have fun at SS :0)

gaylen said...

Oh that looks like so much fun. I have the chance to go work at SS, but I have to find a place to sleep :) g

What a fun day! I'm sorry I missed your e-mail or I would've joined in on the fun.

dianne said...

Looks like you had a great day! Have fun at the Summit. Wish I could join you guys but I know that you'll take lots of fun pictures to share.

Scrabblequeen said...

What can I say? Some folks just have ALL the fun!

Beverly said...

Weeze's face! I've never seen her with her head before. What a great surprise! Sounds like you gals had a great time.

Gah, you've outed me! ;) I'm trying not have an Internets paranoid moment. *breathebreathe* Stalkers don't like to read knitting blogs, right? But I guess it would be weird to cut off all our faces in that group shot. Then we'd just be a buncha boobs and legs. Which would probably make stalkers want us more... Okay, okay, I'll post the group pic on my blog, too. Guess I woulda had to show the face eventually, right?

I had SO much fun hanging out on Sunday! Thanks for taking me to Purlescence! And my toes are so pretty! :)

Zonda said...

Woohoo what fun! Thanks for showing us Weez's face!! What a great day!

Knitting Kris said...

Oh, have a fabulous time at SS - I am unable to go. But it sounds like so much fun!
I'm so jealous that you get to meet all these really cool knitting friends. Sometimes I hate living so rurally, but then I like my mountains!

Tricia said...

Awesome! - Look at all that prettiness! Just realized that it is Friday! Not Monday - my first day back to work is today.

So glad to see all the knitty goodness on your blog. Can't wait for the SS posts so I can live vicariously.

chemgrrl said...

Woah. Weez let you show her face on teh internetz? Therapy must be working for her. :)

Purdy yarn! Speaking of voting on stuff, I have a favor to ask you. Will email...

*So Jealous!* Looks like you had an awesome time. Just a few more days to go and we can have our own meetup!

cpurl17 said...

It was SO COOL running into you!! Weezalana is adorable!! Can we keep her?

peaknits said...

What a great day! I love your friend's skirt and those great shoes! And the butterfly flip flops are fabulous too!

Beverly said...

Your blog is a lotta fun. I've also met up with some online buddies. We all boarded a train to st. louis for wwkip and recently did a yarn run to downtown chicago. it's a real blessing to be able to connect in three dimensions!!

Virtuous said...

AAAh great day!! Luv you get to keep meeting up with CPurl!! :( Jelly!!!
And had to comment on the ripple skirt since I love mine so much too! (I really want Weeze shoes though! LOL)

What a treat of a day!
