Back From MFKR

OMG! What a great time. It was so much fun. I'm a little sad that it's over. So, the highlights for me were: meeting everyone, sitting around with a bunch of guys knitting, laughing my ass off almost constantly, Sophie's Choice, being groped by Queer Joe, a bit too much wine, getting a great gift for my classroom from GrandfatherKnits, FAB Swag, hanging out with guys knitting and laughing my ass off almost constantly, scaring Queer Joe with opera, finding out that MoKnitter has more of a Diet Coke addiction than I do, and hanging out with guys knitting and laughing my ass off almost constantly.

Can we do this again soon?

Glad to hear it was a great time!

Grace and Peace,

I figure every group has to have the "creepy guy"...I was glad to be that guy...especially with guys like Buck and Ron in the room...don't worry Tim...I only fondle or grope the guys who don't seem to mind too much.

Don't worry, of all the people I've met who fit into the "creepy guy" category, you're not one of them -- maybe I just have my creep-meter set REALLY high......

I agree. He kept trying to convince us that he was creepy and it just didn't fly. Maybe Joe is a "Creepy Guy" wanna be.

"Jealous" can't begin to describe it for me. If I was independently wealthy I'd be a regular fixture at all of the knitting retreats...They'd probably ban me!! -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
