Knitters rock!

Hello! Preaching to the choir pretty much, I know! But don't knitters rock! Is it true you never come away from a gathering of knitters empty handed? It certainly was for me this weekend, after meeting up with a couple of fab-o Sydney knitters on Saturday for our regular little s'n'b:And then Sunday in Canberra (which you can read all about on BellsKnits):mmm burnt butter alpaca - it's as soft as, well, buttah!
And best for last:
Handmade by Bells for me, using Donni's Bruised Bloodwood yarn (which you can buy here) - my very own monkeys! And they fit like a glove. Or I should say, like a sock! I couldn't get the colour right but no doubt you'll see much better pictures on Bells' blog shortly! Thanks Bells, they rock! You rock!

But really, the goodies were just the icing on the cake - not at all necessary (although fab) because the real thing I take away with me each time I meet up with knitters is a fabulous sense of community, of shared history and interests and of caring, interesting, amazing people who I am very happy to call my friends. Knitters rock!

Knitters (and crocheters!) are really fabulous people. You never have to look far to be reminded of that, do you? You deserve every single gift! And thank you so much for coming to my 'do'. It was the icing on my cake!

I'm sorry I missed our little group knit on Saturday. Your last paragraph conveyed thoughts perfectly. I always come away with a warm feeling. Now, if only I could get my act together to meet Bells and Donni, I'd be very happy indeed. Next year, perhaps?

It's a lovely world we live in...well most of the time. Knitting has brought so many from so far, so close.
