Yesterday my husband and I were having lunch at the House of Blues at the West End at Disney.
We were sitting outside waiting for the musical entertainment to start when all of a sudden some women sat down at a table down the way from us. They pulled out knitting projects and started knitting. All three of them. Immediately I had to go and investigate.
I introduced myself and asked what they were working on. You just don't see people gathered outside knitting. I was so excited. Of course I had to tell them that I don't knit, I crochet. They replied that some of them crochet as well. I sat down and we started a conversation. They told me that they had all met on Raverly.com. I have signed up with Raverly.com many months ago and kinda forgot about it and they told me that I need to revisit it! That I will become addicted to the Forums. That is how they all met and they get together to work on projects. They convinced me to try knitting again. I have such trouble with keeping the stitches on the needles. The last time I tried it was probably over 5 years ago. I left them one of my cards so that they could read my blog and then we were off to continue our Christmas shopping. It was a really fun encounter. So girls, three Laura's and one Robin, I promise I will try to start learning to knit in the New Year. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
Oh, one more thing, not to bring the conversation down, but I wanted to pay tribute to the woman who taught me to crochet, my mother. She passed away 26 years ago, on December 20. So to you Mom I owe a lifetime of creativity. I love you, miss you and will be forever grateful for all that you taught me.
Okay, I'm off to finish my Christmas shopping. I have to get everything for my husband today and the last minute dinner items. My husband is studying to be a chef so he is cooking the entire Christmas meal.
Here's the menu:
Cranberry Viniagrette Salad with Candied Walnuts, Bacon infused Turkey Breast, Baby Carrots with Maple Glaze, Stuffing with Sausage, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Peas, Corn, Rolls and Pumpkin Cheesecake. Sounds good eh? I'll be his sous chef!!
Merry Christmas to all!
