woodstove made by celticcaston
before i began even writing this post i got teary eyed. seriously, i LOVE our knitting kal's.  it's amazing to be part of this loving, supportive and wonderfully talented group of women i am lucky to call my friends.  it's amazing to live all over the world yet we all rush on when we get a free moment to spare to chat, encourage and just drool over each other's knitting progress.  i've said it before that this has always been a dream of mine and each and every time we have a kal i feel so blessed to have gotten to know so many wonderful women.  so thank you to each and every one of you.  for the laughs, the virtual hugs, the shoulders to lean on, the advice, the recipes, the pics, the smiles, the likes and just for being you.  i can't wait for the next one!!!!
