The plan is to meet at a halfway point since we live an hour away from each other. Her sweet husband did all the research for us and we are to meet at a new shopping complex that is 30 minutes from us. It is a new facility so I'm excited about that as well. I might take the kids over on Saturday so I can actually find it on Tuesday. Yes, yes, I am that anal retentive but let's just call it detail oriented and conscientious, okay.
Once we get there, we're going to meet at the Barnes & Noble Cafe where we can grab some coffee and then hunt out some squishy chairs in which to plant our patooties for several hours to learn how to knit and get to know each other. I have since learned that her favorite colors are pink and green (see why I like her!) and so I'm going to create her a starter kit with some essentials for her journey into knitting. I hope she likes it and we can do it like once a month or so... and with it being in public, we might get more people to join our group and then who knows... oh wow - the possibilities!!
So here are the items that I am going to get for her ~ it's like a mini Christmas in September... lol.
