Blogger Meetup!

When I entered the blogging world it was with the purpose of being able to share my passion for knitting, my garden and my family.  I never dreamed I would actually be able to come face to face with other bloggers.  Last May I met  Ann Voskamp.  This past Saturday I was honored to be able to sit and chat ( for hours!) with Kathy from 9peas.  We had tried since the summer to find an opportunity to get together.  Two hours separates us distance wise.  This past weekend we were able to meet 1/2 way, share lunch, and shop for yarn for Aunt Leila who had put out a Facebook SOS for yarn!

Kathy is an amazing wife and mother of 9.  We shared stories of family, faith, knitting and oh so much more!  We are already planning another trip so I can introduce her to the world of Mad Tosh just 15 minutes from my house.  She has promised me cooking lessons in exchange for sock knitting instructions!


  1. It was such a fun time, I truly felt like I was sitting down with a very dear friend I had known forever! I'm looking forward to coming in for that Mad Tosh, my cousin is going to knit your wrap along with me - cannot wait!

    1. Well I may just have to knit another with you! I get many compliments on that shawl so maybe another fun colorway?

  2. What a lovely photo of both of you! It's so wonderful to turn virtual friendships into real-life ones!

  3. what a great photo....and a lasting friendship! I've met just 2 blogger friends.....and like you said-----you pick up as if you've known each other a lifetime. Isn't it great?
