Knitting Outdoors

Knitting outdoors

It was a gazillion degrees today. Like it was yesterday and it will probably be again tomorrow. Thank goodness for summery yarns like bamboo/cotton, I can *just* bear to knit in this heat.


Nikki and me

Today I was joined in my outdoor knitting by the lovely and talented Nikki and her cutie pie Hannah. Its quite a strange feeling to meet someone for the first time even though you 'know' them so well! Internet friendships are a strange but wonderful thing! We had a delicious lunch, talked knitting and hung out with the kiddies by the paddling pool. Eventually it reached eleventy hundred degrees in the shade and we both sat knitting with our feet in the paddling pool too (I'm sure that would have made a very amusing sight). Very cool to finally meet Miss Devilish Red and her not so devilish child!!

Great company, great weather .......A perfect summer afternoon...

I have met several Internet friends too and it is amazing how there is no awkwardness, it's like we have always know each other.

It's COLD here in NY.

lovely day to get together, it's wet here in Wtgn!
Still it is hot, I agree too hot to knit, best stay indoors and watch Jane Austin movies!

I know what you mean about meeting blog friends in real life - it is so cool!

Hope you get a cool change soon, we got one yesterday - I reckon it'll blow across the Pacific in a couple of days - hope so!

I have met some wonderful internet friends too but alas no 'knitting' friends yet. I've searched Ravelry for knitters in my area but when I find them they often don't have a blog.
Glad you gals had a fun time together.
