The Gift of Giving Thanks

Last night I had the rare opportunity to do something that I have wanted to do for a long time. I got to say Thank You to the man who started my design career. What a thrill!

My friends at Knit-A-Bit are celebrating their 10th year in business and this week they are having some heavy hitters in the the knit/crochet world. Last night the featured guest was Stacy Charles of Tahki Stacy Charles.

Now a lot of you know that Harriet and Susan started my design career by taking me to TNNA many years ago. For those who don't, the quick version is: while they were placing their order with TSC, Stacy asked if I was a designer, Harriet immediately said yes (even though I wasn't) and the rest is history!

Leave it to Harriet and Susan to have an event many years later that would connect me with Stacy again and give me the opportunity to say Thank You for giving me the opportunity to begin a completely new chapter in my life.

What a wonderful gift for me.... to be able to say Thank You to the man that started it all. I even got a hug!

I just wanted to say thank you for the gorgeous green yarn I received the other day!! I have been scouring Rav looking for the perfect pattern for the yarn. Meanwhile I have been knitting up a neckwarmer and now a baby hat then fingerless mitts then its time for selfish knitting!

Again, thank you so much for the lovely shade of green yarn!
