Right before I left Kazakhstan I was able to meet up with two fellow Ravelers in Almaty - Amy from the US and Anja from Denmark.
We were sitting outside the Hyatt hotel, having hamburgers and great French fries, and were also gifted by a lovely day.
I've only met each one of these lovely ladies once, but you know, with knitting, you are fast friends! I think if you click on the photo and bring it up you can see their Ravelry buttons on their shirts.
Take care girls -- and enjoy autumn there! I'm still dreaming about "home." Funny about that!
(and thanks for the reminder D-- about correcting the time zone issue LOL)
