Wanted to send a HUGE THANK YOU out to bodej.
Last week, I posted about wanting to knit a cardigan, but in reading patterns, I just didn't seem to understand the patterns. Instructions and construction details.
This woman saw I lived in Oklahoma, Saw I was having issues with this, and finding someone to help. She sent me a private message asking where in the State I lived, and offering to help. It turns out, although she lives in another town, it is only a few short miles from me. We exchanged info, started talking on Facebook Messenger, and agreed to meet at the Hobby Lobby in her town on Saturday afternoon.
We met at the store, in the yarn isle. Our husbands decided to go to a tool store just down from the Hobby Lobby, and we talked yarn, patterns, knitting needles, crochet, and all things about the craft for about 2 1/2 hours.

Bodej has offered to help me along the way. Getting me started soon, and here to answer questions if I get stuck. I am beyond EXCITED!!! After talking, Neither of us has had someone to talk knitting/crocheting with really, and it was so much fun.
The 4 of us were enjoying the conversations so much, we decided to have a late lunch together. We were so much into our yarn/patterns world that it just seemed like time flew by.

We have been sending messages back and forth all weekend, and I am so happy to have a new friend to talk all things yarn with. LOL

I can not thank her enough for taking the time out of her busy life to help me out. She and her husband are very busy people, and are always on call.

We found out we have a lot of things in common, and it was a fun day. I got to see some of the beautiful projects she has made, and even created herself. At one point, I think there was 4 or 5 of us in the yarn isle of Hobby Lobby, talking, sharing, and showing off pictures of projects.
I never thought I would meet someone from KP. But I am so blessed to have gotten to meet bodej, and her husband.

I will soon be starting my Cardigan because of this site, and with the help of bodej! Wish Me Luck!!!

Thank You again boej, I appreciate you so very much.

When I relocated from one state to another, the biggest loss to me was my knitting buddy. I've found some new ones here, and while we share the common love of this craft, I am usually the "teacher" at our meetings. My knitting buddy was my "teacher" and gave me much inspiration. I love helping others, would also love to have someone to learn from. I still visit my old state and stay with my friend and it is such a rejuvenating experience.

Congrats on finding another with whom you can share your excitement, and all else that goes along with a great knitting friend.

Isn’t it wonderful when another knitter goes above and beyond to help us in a very caring way?
