Blogging Friends! Chelle and the Fingerless Gloves

 

Fingerless Gloves

I don’t know what I expected when I started blogging.  Actually, I had no expectations at all.  I was completely amazed when I received my first comment.  But even if I had expectations, I can assure you that making friends would not have been on that list.  How do you become friends with someone you’ve never met?  Turns out it is quite easy and absolutely wonderful.

Last month, I posted on my Facebook page that I was getting ready to go do a photo shoot, that it was cold, and wouldn’t it be nice if my daughter, Kate, would knit me some fingerless gloves.  Well, a dear, sweet blogging friend, Chelle of Queen of Kafooster  posted that if Kate wouldn’t make me gloves then she would!!  Then Kate weaseled in on the deal and asked for gloves too.  And then Chelle, in her complete and utter awesomeness, said that she would knit some for both of us!!

What makes this so amazing is that I have never met Chelle.  She lives in Hillsboro, Oregon, which by the way, I have no idea how far it is from Soddy Daisy, TN, but it’s far.  Really far.  The odds are pretty good that we’ll never meet.  Though, if I win the lottery this year (and it was my resolution, so it better happen soon), she will be my first road trip.   Chelle and I became friends over many email conversations.  She has two delightful sons, both with Asperger’s, and I’m a special ed teacher, so we bonded over that.  She has offered me lots of advice along the way.  Eventually we became Facebook friends, and now we are fingerless gloves friends. 

 

I love blogging.  I love the friends I have made.  I love Chelle.  I love my fingerless gloves.  I love both pairs, but I suppose I will give a pair to Kate.

    I love you too Pam. You deserve them.. and they look so good on you! These are also great when typing IEP’s so your hands stay warm. See, you NEED them. @ Le Ann, I really liked the grey/maroon too, loved them both, but I did the dark ones last, it felt like working with jewels. @ Kate.. I made her PROMISE!

    Those are just gorgeous! I want to learn how to make those someday … but first I must master the simple scarf. :)

    They are really nice gloves! I invited a blogging friend to my house for Thanksgiving, because they were going to be in Philadelphia, which is far from their home in Seattle. I think people were perplexed by this, but that’s what friends do, right?

    Cool gloves!

    I have several close friends I’ve met through blogging and although we’ve never met face-to-face, I know they’re life long friends. I hope to travel with a few in the coming years.

    I see you got a counterfeit, knock off camera. They even got the name spelled backwards! (ha ha ha, running while you throw stuff at me with your fingerless gloves)

    I totally agree – not at all what I imagined when I started blogging, but the friendhsips I’ve made have become one of the main reasons why I still blog. I just adore those gloves by the way :-)

    Love the gloves!
    A side note, never heard of Soddy Daisy TN until last weekend when I was there, then, I just read your blog for the first time. Small world, little connections make me smile!
