What did you do on your Saturday?

Well for me and my pals Christine and Megan, we got to take a roadtrip to Charlotte Yarn to take a class and visit with......

Wendy Knits!
Woohoo!
(sorry Christine, I have no idea why I'm standing so far from you...I know you don't have cooties! ;) Me, Christine, Wendy, and Megan.

I have to admit, I was nervous, I mean she's the first author I've met IRL. Wendy is really down-to-earth and I didn't feel too nervous anymore. It was a fun class, I learned a few tips and I know my buds did too!

Dani, Corey, and Megan trying to behave and follow along :)

Me and Aimee
Aimee who rescued me the last year after taking her knitting class (pssst...my car died). We safely made it home this year :)

Christine, who conquered the toe part of the toe up sock. Wendy gave her the start, and we'll finish from there....yes girl...you can do it!!
So Proud!

There were some shenanigans at lunch...
Megan getting in trouble!
Look at Megan acting so innocent! She almost got put in time out!

There was some shopping...
So much sock yarn...

And I met a fellow blogger, who recognized me right away..hehe..that was funny I looked up when she walked into class and said to myself there's Stacey! I was going to wait until after class but she looked over and said hey Z!

Sadly, no pics of Cristi who was there working :( (bad camera...I really tried!)and I got to visit her socks in progress, although she did put away the newest one she's cast on with her latest yarn pretty fast, guess she was a bit worried I'd swipe it ;)

It was a fun day and all three of us wished we lived closer to Charlotte!

I'm so green with envy I look like Kermit the Frog. Ok, maybe Oscar the Grouch. Sure looks like it was a good time, even with the unruly one, there, getting into trouble!
