I'll let you know how it goes. I'm a bit nervous about it, what with the whole crazy shyness thing. I have a tendency to either clam up and not say a word or I turn into the crazy talker lady. You know, that chick who just can't seem to stop talking? I'll be thinking "Stop talking now! Are you still talking? What are you talking about? STOP TALKING!!" It happens. It's not pretty.
I started to feel a bit panicky about it yesterday (yes, i am stressing this much about going to a group of knitters. yes, i realize this is not necessarily healthy or normal. yes, if i stress this much about this it implies a far greater and more neurotic level of stress for other social type outings... i'm working on it.) but then I started thinking about what I would bring to knit and the panic drifted away. Ah, yarn. Your curative powers are boundless. The thought that I will have knitting with me has eased much of the potential panic for me. If I feel out of place or nervous, I can knit on the cable front for my cardigan. If I feel chatty (hopefully not TOO chatty) I can knit on the ribbed back of the cardigan.
Speaking of yarn:
I love these socks. I'm just past the heel turn on the second one. Does anyone else get SO excited over having the stripes match up? I mean, I'll wear fraternal twin socks, but when they match up, it feels like I have accomplished something great!
