Knitter Love

Thank you all so much for your kind comments and caring thoughts for my family. Dale and I really appreciate your support and it honestly does help knowing that you are thinking about us right now. Really. It helps a lot.

So, what’s a knitter to do when she’s going through a difficult time? Thanks to the creativity of dear Wendy, she throws up the Knitter’s Signal.


Since I’ve been kind of distracted lately I wasn’t really paying attention to Dale’s concert schedule. So, it wasn’t until yesterday morning that I realized that he was going to be playing last night in the neighborhood of some of my very dear blogging friends. So I fired off a few emails and rallied the troops. Despite the last minute notice Kathy and Manise rose to the occasion.

They couldn’t make it to the concert but Kathy invited us back to her house for drinks and conversation. And it was wonderful. We talked and laughed and shed a few tears. It felt so good to be in the company of people who get me – and not just about knitting and spinning – they get it all and they love me anyway. So, thank you, Kathy. And thank you, Manise. You made an ordinary night a truly special one.

Even if I didn’t get home until two in the morning.

  1. You are an amazing woman, and I only know you because I was randomly paired with you for SP…I’m happy to know you and am thinking of you. 🙂

  2. As an empty-nester knitter (how empty can it be with 3 Siamese cats?!) I’ve gotta tell you there are advantages to having the house to yourself. Yes, these early days are a big adjustment, but I know the two of you will come to enjoy your freedom, too.

  3. Was it hard getting up this morning? 😉 I’m sure it was so worth it. I always feel better after I’ve had a talk with friends.

  4. Arriving home at 2AM = A good time. Glad you had it 🙂 And I did notice you posted a leetle late this morning 😉

  5. Is somebody a wee bit tire today??? Good for you! It was a well-needed night for you.

    Hope you and Dale are feeling a bit better today.

  6. No better reason to stay out till 2 am on a weeknight than to be with the knitbuds when you need them most. Glad they’re there for you.(in close proximity that is, coz the rest of us are there for you too. Just, um, a wee bit more remote)

  7. Two o’clock in the morning?? That’s some knitterly love — well deserved. I’m glad you had a good time with people who get you. ; )

  8. There is nothing like friends! Wait, you stayed up until 2 in the morning. I haven’t seen that hour since I had a wee one needing a bottle then.

  9. I am so happy to read you were able to spend some comfort time in the company of friends!

    PS…….I got my air tickets yesterday 🙂

  10. I’m so glad you got the knitter love. I wish I had been there (even virtually) to give you a (cyber) hug, but I’m glad you got well-taken care of. There’s no one like Manise to listen when you’re feeling sad.

  11. Knitter love is the best. I’m glad you have people close by who understand what you’re going through and are there for you. We’re all here for you, too, we just live further away!

  12. love that clever knitting SOS – I am glad that there are women there who ‘get it’ about you – you’re wonderful.

  13. If Dale ever plays out around San Francisco, tell me and I will be there! I miss that life and know I’d enjoy his performance.

    My dd is talking about moving to Japan. Luckily, she’s not old enough to head out on her own. I’m trying to appease her with copies of Vogue Nippon…

    How could someone not like you for who you are?
