A few neighbors have wanted to learn how to crochet. When my neighbor, two doors down, had foot surgery, and was stuck in the house, it seemed like the perfect time to gather for a little lesson and company! I was thrilled how fast the three newbies picked it up! We also hada fourth neighbor, who already knew how to crochet but came for the fun! I teased the ladies that they could pick any nicknames they wanted for the blog, like I do for Chickee and Chief... but they declined. We're thinking about making this little get-together a monthly thing! Wouldn't that be fun! Oh, I hope it works out.
Here's one of the highlights... the new neighbor who already crochets, I'll call her "K", I met her at this get toghether, and she walks in with... The January issue of Crochet Today....another lady asks, "Ellen, do you have a design in this one?" and I said, "as a matter of fact, I do!" So K says, "which one?" and I show her Sunny Spread, and she says, "That's why I bought this issue!" I was floored! What an honor and a thrill! I don't know if I will ever get used to people liking my stuff! I think I read Robyn of Crochet by Faye saying something similar recently (to paraphrase) "somebody other than my Mom likes my stuff!" LOL!
