Today I met Lisa from GroggyFroggy.blogspot.com! What a sweetheart, both her and her hubby! We met up today at a book store coffee shop to knit and chat and drink coffee and it was so much fun. Conversation was easy and we had a lot to talk about, which is always what I'm most worried about when I meet someone new.
Here she is with the evidence of a finished Oreo Brownie and my empty Chai tea:
After a couple of hours of me staring in awe at her crochet and her staring in awe of my knitting, we packed it up and went to the Michaels close by because neither of us usually gets a chance. We had coupons, you see! My purchase was a bit of a splurge because I really don't have a project in mind, but it was such a good deal! I got two balls of Bernat Alpaca in a beautiful greyish greenish colour, (and it is so incredibly soft!) for $5. I keep wanting to rub it against my face! hehehe
The most popular pattern on Ravelry for this yarn is these cabled mittens:
And even though they're totally beautiful, I'm not sure about them. Opinions?
All in all, it's been a GREAT Saturday and I hope that Lisa and I manage to get together more often once I'm going to school in Roanoke all the time. :)
