I had to share this with you all as it made my day...I got a message on Facebook from a high school friend who I haven't seen since my 20's. She is a good friend of the woman who taught me how to read patterns. The note said this:
"Hey Estella, I was wanting to ask do you knit as a profession now? your pictures of your creations were amazing! I can remember sitting in your family room watching you knit but didn't realize at the time just how talented you were."
To think my work looks professional and to realize how much it as progressed since she saw my early attempts totally gave me a big smile! Just had to share.
