the sweetness of friends~

my friend andi of my sisters knitter

has been hosting a KAL/CAL on ravelry

the finish as many UFO'S or WIP's 

the reward.....a finished project!!!!!!

and andi, being the sweet girl she is, will also be doing a drawing at the end

where she is giving away goodies like yarn, fiber & stitch markers

she is also hosting a KAL/CAL in October

stop by ravelry & check it out

i've found by joining this group, the reward for me is not the finished item,

nor the prizes at the end....

it is the friendships that are made, the encouragement offered a long the way,

and the closeness of those in the group

case in point...

andi has a friend who is in the need of some comfort

she let the group know she was doing a comfort blanket & ask for help in achieving this goal

the girls in the group came through!

soon someone in need will feel the warmth & care of not only one kind & thoughtful person but

 a whole group of caring women

when i think of the women in this group, i'm reminded of this african proverb...

"If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."


and if you are in the area
don't forget the wool gather at youngs dairy on saturday & sunday


  1. It's a wonderful group isn't it?! I am so happy to see all the items coming off of needles, there are some really pretty things.
    Have a fun weekend, wish I were closer so I could attend the wool gather.

  2. How fun to have a group that all have the same happy art in common. The world is a much smaller place when we all share in the love and concern for all.

    Have a most lovely weekend my sweet friend. xo

  3. Everyday that I visit the group on Ravelry, my heart fills with happiness. This group is made up of some of the lovelies people on earth. The friendships by far are the best part.
    How did I get so lucky to become friends with you Katie?

  4. very well said! I am looking forward to joining in on the oct cal!

  5. This was so beautiful and very special! Thanks so much for sharing :) Hugs!
