Meeting with someone special


I am getting in my car to drive around the Lac Léman (Geneva Lake), over the border towards the French Alps. I'm going to France to meet another blogger today!

This doesn't happen every day, be so sure. Her name is Heike Gittins and she is a very talented knit and crochet designer from Wales and the author of Made With Loops. Maybe you have visited her blog before or maybe you follow her on Instagram (@madewithloops)? She makes the most colorful and lovely knitted shawls and I'm in awe of her knitting skills... She has been "here" before but we didn't meet back then. But this time she gave me a shout before her arrival and now it is happening. :)

I'm so excited and I don't mind at all the hour long drive to Morgins (think Port de Soleil or Chatel). It is well worth every minute. Tilda yarn gifts are packed and my coffee cup is filled for the road.  I am so looking forward to lots of chatting about crochet and blogging and to get to know this talented woman a bit more. To meet someone from Cyber World "live" is always very special. Blogland is fabulous, making us all connect from near and far in the world. Isn't it amazing?

    It was truly wonderful to meet you today and it felt as if we have known each other for a long time. Our time spent chatting and working with yarn today will stay with me forever. Thank you for making the long journey, truly appreciated. Thank you for my lovely gift of Tilda Yarns and I so hope our ideas will come to fruition.

  16. What a small world ... I look in on your blog and you're meeting with someone I know. Heike lives not far from me and used to belong to my local knit group. I imagine you had a great time, Heike is lovely :)
