It’s taken me a long time to realize what you have all know for awhile.   It seems KnitTogether has run its course.  I don’t even know why.  I’m still knittng, I still LOVE knitting…. I’m still reading ALL your blogs, even though my commenting has slacked off.  Somehow, I’ve become a blog slacker.

So…. It’s goodbye and THANK you, at least for the time being.  I’m fine – I’m great.  I’m still busy, as usual.  I still think of things I want to say to you all from time to time.  See… it’s because you are all my REAL friends.  Really, I love each of you and thank you so much for spending the last few years with me.  I’m SO glad you’re still blogging, because I’d miss you so.  And, it means a lot that you have missed me to.  So much, that when one of you would comment to see what’s up and where I’ve been… I keep telling myself I need to really make a thoughtful reply and tell you, Thanks, It means a lot…. and so I’d put it off until I had time to “make a thoughtful reply,”…. and hours turn into days, and days into weeks…. and so forth, and I’ve neglected you all.

So, rather than neglecting you – I want to thank you so much, for being my friends, for being my knitting mentors…. I learned to knit from all of you, and I’ve made some of my dearest friends here…and I will always cherish that.  AND, most important, I still know where to find you, so I’m not really gone, and you’ll still hear from me.  I’m still on Ravelry, so you can see the knitting there… I’m KnitTogether if we haven’t hooked up there, yet.

And, I’m on Facebook.  That I can do –  think up one-liners about what I’m doing , and I’ve found some of you. and would like to find ALL of you there… so PLEASE email me if you want to Facebook with me, and I’ll tell you where to find me.

I’ll leave you with the last FO for this blog… a multidirectional scarf, Lorna’s Laces Worsted in Motherlode….

This is really hard – you have all been truly knit-together into my heart.  And, now I’m feeling mushy and sad that I really just said this is it for the ol’ blog… but reality is, well reality…   I’ll be a better commenter and you’ll all still hear from me.  You really can’t get rid of me THAT easily!

Love you all ((sniff, sniff)),


PS, remember to email me  (lvonrader@inbox.com) if you want to keep in touch on Facebook.

PSS, Wendy…. now you don’t have to look at the picture of the recliners any more ;o)
