A special visit from Tokyo

The internet is an amazing thing. About three years ago I was getting into the whole knitting blog thing and started scoping out other people's blogs. I found Kat (Pinku) totally randomly and her current post was they just got back from the holidays in Beaver, OK...I did a double take...what? Beaver, OK. Of course, I'm in Oklahoma. So, I emailed her immediately and started blogging ever since. She is now married to Darin who is from Beaver and they come to the states every other year or so and visit his family. Kat's from Australia. She's a brilliant knitter and fluent in Japanese....amazing.

So, when she and Darin made their trip this year to Oklahoma, they hooked up with us and stayed the night and had a blast. This shot is us staying up late...she was teaching me how to make socks. Of course we went to SWAK to buy yarn. She is a fabulous girl and we hit it off instantly. How amazing to have a friend like her through the internet. Knitters unite. I'm so sad they don't live closer. They were so much fun. They are back home now, but we some day look forward to visiting them there in Tokyo.
