The Harlot, Kimberly and I

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


I've participated in a couple of yarn swaps on the Internet - all via ravelry. One of the other members on ravelry was in search of as much Noro yarn as she could possibly get her hands on, and because she doesn't know enough English to make things happen, I decided to help her out. To make a long story short I got in contact with Kimberly from Rhode Island. Emails went back and forth. It then turns out that she too is a Yarn Harlot fan! I had just finished the 'Secret Life of a Knitter' and I was very well-entertained all the way through which made me want more.





Kimberly came to my rescue. She sent me the new Yarn Harlot book: Things I Learned from Knitting. Signed and all! Not only that, she also sent copies to the ravelry member looking for Noro AND to Lise. In fact, the package was full of goodies. I owe Kimberly big time :) I'll pay her in Kauni when she decides on colour and amount :)

Ja, Kimberly er gud :-)
Jeg fik også en Harlot-bog, og så en masse lækkert strømpegarn. Jeg sendte også Kauni den anden vej... En hel del faktisk. Jeg tror der var ca 800 g, så hun får da lidt at lege med ;-)
Skønt med de mange muligheder på Ravelry

Hej Mette,
Jeg er helt enig - ravelry ville givetvis ikke være det samme uden folk som Kimberly :)

Nej, og uden Ravelry og den her blog, havde jeg ikke en fornemmelse af, at hende den lyshårede, der købte grønt garn den dag, jeg stod og kælede med Sys` Noro, måske hedder Karin ;-)
Og jeg holder fast ved at jeg ikke forfølger dig ;-)

Så vi har simpelthen mødt hinanden - eller i hvert fald snuset til garn samme tid og sted?? :) Hmm... jeg indrømmer, det ikke står helt lysende klart for mig, men det lyder sandsynligt! :) Kan vi have rendt ind i hinanden andre steder også?
