Such a Rookie

Man, when I see all of the things you guys can do, I feel like such a rookie. I've been at it for like 1-2 years now. I'm still working on perfectin socks and booties. I did whip up an ipod kewzie (?spelling) from Men with Balls book last night for one of my son's friends. He though it was cool, but geez, the way you guys can just whip out a sweater, a vest, intricate socks, just blows me away. The only bad thing about the internet is that you guys are all so far away. I wish we could have a convention sometime where 50-100 of us could all meet. I have really gotten encouragement, love, and some common bonds shared with many of you. I love and thank you all for it. I wish everyone the Merriest of Christmases. I hope everyone gets what they want! I wish all of you a happy new year and I hope to continue with our discussions and blogs for years to come. God Bless you all.
xoxo

I'd come to the convention. Perhaps meet ups at some of the fiber festivals ie., Maryland Wool and Sheep Show. What stops us??

The speed at which some of these guys whip things out (oh shut up - that's NOT what I meant!) astounds me.

I have to admire you for working on pefecting your techniques with an item - I tend to rush from project to project and d*mn the mistakes, full speed ahead.

Internet communities are an interesting phenomenon. I know of several that have become 3-D communities as well - with annual get-togethers and visits between members. One forum has had simulcast meetings on two continents, so that there was not only two sets of face-to-face but online people could join in as well!
