Oh So Excited!

That's right - I am oh so excited because this coming Tuesday at 10 a.m. I will be meeting up with my friend Tracy to teach her how to knit!  This is doubly exciting because I have never actually met her before - we have a mutual friend on Facebook and hit it off on his page... lol.

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.


  1. What a great idea and so generous of you!!! As I'm reading this I know tomorrow is the DAY!! I know it'll be fun!! j

  2. Sounds like a great time. Love those girl-times. So fun and important.

    I bought the "Taught Myself Knitting" kit at Michael's a few months ago. It's great. I am now on my thrid attempt at the same scarf. I have pulled it apart twice now, but you know what they say: practice, practice, practice. I also watched a few how-to videos on YouTube. Very helpful.

    But there were a couple of times I wanted to just take the thing apart and ship all the stuff to you. LOL! -Leigh
