Well, I got so busy on WWKIP day that I did not get to the event I was planning to attend. Nor did I make it to the Yarn Lady Bag Sale. I ended up having breakfast with my hubby and another couple. These folks are great friends and we had a wonderful time. When we left their, i ran out and bought groceries, returned a skirt that was too BIG (YEAH!!!!)and I went to Michaels. By the time that was all done, it was well past 4 PM. Speaking of Michaels, can I just say that the place is like Disney Land these days! 10 years ago, I would go into Michaels every now and again and I gotta say, if my memory serves me, it was not that busy. Now, the place is teaming with people in every isle! America is definately more crafty than it used to be. I think it has to do with the high stress lifestyles we all lead. People need an outlet. As I have mentioned before, its definately very comforting and therapeutic for me. Even watching others knit soothes me. Anyway, I just think its amazing how many folks are crafting these day. I also like the idea of making things for myself and others. Somebody mentioned that handmade gifts are few and far between these days. Its true. People don't seem to value handmade things the way we should. But thats not surprising since the whole world's value system seems to upside down in this age. I am thinking of giving all handmade gifts this year to my family. At work, my 3 office mates and I do a gift exchange. I am thinking of suggesting that we do handmade things. I will let you know how that goes!
At any rate, I did end up making it to a coffee shop near my home on WWKIP day and I did actually knit a little. The picture below is a little bit faked. I had forgotten to bring the right needles so I just knit a bit to say I did it and for the picture. I will have to pull out those stitches and fix it later. Oh well, I will make next year. Maybe I will even host an event myself!
Thanks for stopping by!
