I met fellow Cleveland Knitbloggers Affiknitty and Preeti there:
(I actually stole this pic from the Cider Moon site)Preeti has some great pics of the event on her blog – I was a little drunk on yarn and completely forgot I had my camera with me.
Then a whole big group of us went out to lunch at the French Quarter Café (great little place at State Road and Wallings owned by people displaced by hurricane Katrina - their Muffuletta sandwich is AMAZING). It was so very nice to meet and hang out with everyone!
Me, Deanna, Laura, Joyce, Preeti, Ludmilla, my mom (Carole), DebbiLuckily I had a non-knitter with me to take our picture! They do come in handy sometimes – they are actually also very helpful when you can’t decide which colorway of yarn to get.
I was somewhat restrained when it came to yarn purchases – I had a Soft ‘n Sassy giftcard from my Grandma Bobbie from Christmas so I limited myself to that. I only came away with 2 skeins of sock yarn.
One skein of their “Icicle” style in the color Wildwood:
Such a luscious blend of purples and greens…
I can’t wait to see how it knits up!
And one skein of their “Flurry” style in June Carter:
I love this one. The name is great, the colors are amazing…
Wow. Just wow.
As a side note I have a camera with a fantastic macro (up close) feature b/c back in the day I thought I was going to use it to take pictures of architectural models. I actually wondered if I would ever use that feature once I graduated. Heh.
So yeah… beautiful, local yarn, great times with fun kniiters... You can’t get any better than that!
Oh and the Cavs just finalized their Sweep! GO CAVS!
