Guest Blogger #4

Last but not least, here is the week’s final guest blogger entry! I have some big shoes to fill following the boyfriend, the Mom and the good friend/favorite knit shop owner!! But I shall endeavor to try……..

My name is Monica and I work with Wendy here in our wonderful nation’s capital. You know the one that is perpetually under construction!? Wendy will be happy to hear that she missed this week’s jack hammering under our office windows – I have no doubt.

I am the proud mother of the canine Lucy pictured on this very blog some time ago – you know, the cute yellow lab that everyone told me would grow up to be huge! Unfortunatley I don’t have any recent pictures of Ms. Lucy to post today. I am not nearly as organized as my fellow guest bloggers. I should be getting pics back soon of the puppy with my 10 month old nephew – major Kodak moment! – and will ask Wendy to indulge me and post them.

You must know, I am not a knitter – much to the chagrin of Wendy and not because she hasn’t tried to convert me!! I do however read the blog every day and always admire both Wendy’s work and the work of other knitters she displays! I can’t even begin to tell you how impressed I was when you all had the Mouse-a-thon and the Critter-Knitter’s knit-a-thon. You all do such nice work and are so generous!! I was amazed every day when Wendy would come in and give me updates. A wonderful effort by you all!

Well I wish you all happy knitting and a safe and happy long weekend. Wendy asked me to tell you all that she will be posting on Monday, the 5th – despite the holiday here in the U.S. so you have that to look forward to!!

To those of you in the path of this next hurricane….be safe!! and L-B, glad you are recovering from that storm the other night!

  1. Hi, Monica!

    Despite my best efforts my elder daughter remains a non-knitter – it just means she has other skills and interests. Plus, who doesn’t love someone who admires knitters (I know I find Wendy’s work jaw-droppingly wonderful regularly).

    Thanks for posting. ๐Ÿ™‚ And may the jack hammers be few and far between for the remainder of the year.

    Best,
    Jenanne

  2. Hi Monica, I remember your labrador well and I would like to see a recent pic here! Tace care and thanks for posting!

  3. Hi, Monica! Thank you for the post! I’ll look forward to seeing puppy Lucy’s next guest appearance here. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Hi, Monica! Nice entry! Gotta meet your Puppy Lucy! Have a great day and a great holiday weekend!

  5. Hi,Monica! Now that you’re a Wendyknits blogger, you must learn to knit! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can’t wait to see new pics of Puppy Lucy—is she getting her mouth around the Chewman yet? Thanks for the positive thoughts sent to Richmond. Now, we need to focus on everyone farther south! My Mom is riding out Frances in Palm Beach. And,of course, that airport delays don’t delay Wendy’s return! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Hi Monica! I think we met one rainy day in D.C. — weren’t you wearing a multi-directional scarf? (Yes, folks, it’s really bad when you recognize not only a blogger, but her friends as well, by the items she’s knitted.) Thanks for giving us a final guest entry, and enjoy the holiday weekend! I can’t wait to see recent pics of the puppy.

  7. Thanks, Monica, for your taking the time to talk to us. We appreciate that you appreciate what we love! Enjoy your long weekend.

  8. Hi Monica,

    this has been a great week of guest bloggers! Thanks to everyone for their posts while Wendy is away.

    Happy long weekend!

  9. It has been wonderful to have a peak inside the “life of Wendy”. Ian (I’ve wondered who he is), Wendy’s very cool Mom (and now we know where Wendy’s gets her fabulous knitting talents, Kristine (LYS owners are just the best!) and now a co-worker, Monica. Great job, all of you!! Thanks for keeping us entertained while Wendy was away.

  10. Hi Monica,

    This has been great fun this week reading all the guest bloggers.

    I hope the jack-hammers stop soon.

    Have a nice weekend everyone.

  11. Hi Monica!
    I DO knit and I am constantly impressed with the wonder that is Wendy’s knitting. So it’s not like all knitters can knit like Wendy. A good deal of us are wondering, “How does she do it?”

    As far as my non-knitting friends, I try to convert everyone I know into a knitter. I have been most unsuccessful. I just think that many of my friends would find such relief in knitting. They love the finished products enough, that’s for sure. Then again, they aren’t really DIY kind of girls.

    Thank you Monica, Ian, Kristine, and Wendy’s Mom for a very entertaining and insightful week at wendyknits.net!!!

  12. hi monica,

    glad to met you to:-)

    so, not being a knitter, and in spite of that, a guestblogger for wendy, then, you must be a very special person!

    so, what do you do???
