I love my knitting friends!!
Yesterday some of my knitting friends and I met at Dilworth Coffee in Mint Hill, NC. We celebrated one of our friends birthday (which was Saturday). I made her a pair of earrings and she really liked them! She loves the earrings I make so I figured I would be safe making a pair for her. We were knitting and chatting for about 4 hours and then we all left and went our separate ways. While I was driving home, I realized even more how much those knitting friends mean to me! We are from all over the US, we are in all different financial stages in our life, we are basically the same age with a year or two, all of us have had children and some of us are grandmothers. We have been through lots of things in our lives and we have supported each other through it. I guess what I'm just trying to say is that they are a great group of women and they mean alot to me! Some of the girls joke around and say that we are all going to form a knitting commune when we retire and we'll cook, clean, do laundry, shop, knit and just be!! Sounds good to me!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
