People who don’t socialize online often tell me, “Online friends are nice, but they aren’t REAL friends.” I beg to differ. I’ve met so many people online who are as dear and close to me as many a face-to-face friend.
You know who you are.
But today I want to feature Audrey Lintner, author, editor, and knitter extraordinaire.
At least, I think it’s knitting. I can’t tell the difference between knitting and crocheting by looking at it. Maybe you can help.
I “met” Audrey in Dani Greer’s Blogging Boot Camp. Most of the members of that online-only course are still in contact with each other, some in close contact. When Audrey learned, on Facebook, that I had cancer, she asked me what my favorite colors were. Then she made me a shawl in those colors and mailed it, at no small expense, to me.
Don’t nobody try to tell me she isn’t a “real” friend.
My nails this week are in the same general colors.
The turquoise is Maniology’s I See Blue. The pink/purple is Maniology’s Primerose. The sparkle topper on my pointer fingers is NeVerMind’s Eye of the Beholder. The stamping polish is Maniology’s Shattered. The stamping plate is Maniology’s MXM082.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: A shawl.
