Spending a Day With a Crochet Friend...

I was surprised the other day when my best crochet friend Pam (we call each other cousins be cause we have the same last name)emailed me about giving me a duplicate crochet book she had.

I misunderstood, thinking she just wanted me to see it, not realizing she was returning the favor I did a couple months earlier.

Well, she calls me the other day, saying where can we meet up, maybe on Saturday, so I said sure. So we decided to meet at a LYS downtown.

It's always a treat to see her, she so energetic, funny, and we relate very well.I've known her for over 8yrs, and she's always a joy.

We love talking everything crochet!!! From what's going on today, to stuff done years, and years ago.

As both former crochet teachers, we always have strange and funny stories to tell.

So, back to today, we went into this LYS(Loop) , browsing around. I didn't plan to buy anything (it's a little too high end for my taste), and she said she had some coupons she wanted to use.

But, we spend more time talking getting friendly with the store owner and workers.

Finally, we left, with me buying a magazine I really don't need, and her getting anything, go figure!!

So, we decided to stop by to another LYS, that we were more familiar with, Jane's Yarn Shoppe. I was feeling a bit tired, don't know if it was the diabetes, or my blood pressure (or both), but I didn't want to end the day so soon, was having fun, so I went on.

So we get there, and normally, the store doesn't have that many people on Saturdays, but today, she had 4 of her favorite ladies there, and let me tell you, they're a lively bunch.

Normally, it's like this if I stopped by during the middle of the week, but for some reason, today, the ladies showed up.

We all had a good time, telling stories, catching up on the latest news and gossip, laughing and just having a great time.

Although, for me, I was a little tired most of the day, I enjoyed myself, even when I fell off my chair, trying to squeeze myself in a tiny space, when another lady joined in(the space was near the 2 steps of the small landing where we all sat).

I was OK, too tired to even feel embarrassed, besides, I was among friends.

So, after a couple hours, we decided to go, and call it a day.

All in all, it was a fun day, which I don't have too many of.
