Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

An Adventure

2 Comments

I’ve been really quiet on the blog for a while.  Again.  I’ve been doing lots of fun stuff.  There are at least three blog posts floating around in my head.  I guess I’ll just start with one.

Mom and I attended The Loopy Ewe Fall Fling in Ft. Collins, Colorado last week.  (The owner of the shop, Sheri, blogged about it here.)  Mom and I met up in Denver last Wednesday and drove up to Ft. Collins.  On Wednesday night, we attended an event featuring Stephanie Pearl McPhee.  Yes, she is hilarious!

The next few days involved classes and shopping at The Loopy Ewe.   If you ever need to order yarn online and get it quickly, that’s the place to go.  Their customer service is second to none.  And yes, I did buy yarn  Duh!

The shop is filled with gorgeous yarn and quilting fabric.  This is one aisle, looking all the way back to the fabric department.  I also bought this bag.  And yes, it is true.  Just ask my kids.

 

I was able to take a class with the amazing Ann Budd.  Here is a photo of her with Stephanie.  They were arguing about kitchener stitch.  Ann won.!!!

I was blessed to be able to meet some wonderful people.  Knitters are the best!!!  Mom knew a few people there.  One of the ladies knew someone that I’ve had as a facebook friend for several years, but I’ve never met in person.  I’m so thrilled that we’re finally going to be able to meet in February.  That’s all I’m going to say about that right now.  Suffice it to say, it was a really great coincidence!!!

Since this is a knitting and quilting blog, I should show you something I’m working on, huh?  I mentioned in my last post that I’m working on a Mystery knitalong by Sivia Harding.  Here it is after clue three.  There are two more clues and I have a lot of yarn left.  I think it’s going to be a lot of knitting!

Speaking of knitting, it’s time to reload my coffee cup and get at it!
