Knitwits "Where Friends Are Made"

Besties, according to the Urban Dictionary, are friends who have each others' backs, look out for each other, spend lots of time together, and are just really good friends.

Selfies, according to the Urban Dictionary, are pictures taken of oneself while holding the camera at arms length.

Janet and I are Besties who try to take Selfies.
While we like to think that we're Urban Dictionary material, we aren't--we're not 14-21 years old.
Unsuccessful Selfy

I met Janet soon after Knitwits opened 10 years ago and we've been friends ever since. We've been through thick (real thick) and thin (real thin), happiness, extreme sadness, sickness, health, richer and poorer.  In fact, I think we've been through every imaginable emotional state (and hairstyle) together.

Our Knitwits tag line is "Where Friends are Made"--and it's so true.
One of the best things about Knitwits is that all who enter, regardless of knitting skill, becomes part of our friendship circle. It is the true magic of Knitwits.

Friendship is a priceless gift and a major perk of being a Knitwit.
Our lives are touched each and every day by the random acts of kindness, sharing and caring that takes place within our walls. I can think of no other place where husbands are dispatched to fix plumbing issues, complimentary carpet cleaning happens just because, pots of Jambalaya or other meals and snacks are hand delivered and tears of joy and sorrow are shared so freely.
If we sold laughs, hugs and friendships, we'd be golden.

Every now and again,  Life gets crazy or "the business end of things" makes you forget that you have a Bestie.  Besties aren't perfect and neither is Life. A phone call, a hug or someone finishing your sentence is all that's needed to snap you back into place.

Janet, myself and the whole Knitwits gang are extremely proud of Knitwits --while we'll keep plugging away at Life and the business end of things, it is the Knitwits Circle of Friendship the we are most proud of!  Knitwits--Where Friends are Made.

  1. And this is so true. I made friends at Knitwits that will last a lifetime. No matter the miles between us.

  2. missing you so very much. The miles don't change friendship. Thanks for staying in touch.
