I just wanted to briefly tell you about the fun day we had yesterday...Carol and I traveled up to Perrysburg Ohio to spend the day with some stitching friends. We stitched, gabbed, laughed, and laughed some more. We took a break to walk across the street for lunch. Following that half of us walked into town a couple of blocks (Perrysburg was having their Winter Festival). Lots of ice carvings either finished or in progress. We stopped into Thrush's Bakery/Baking Store and then went on to Yarn Cravin', a wonderful yarn shop. Both will merit return visits in the future.
I have been knitting scarves since my trip to Woodstock, VT in October. Thus, I felt it necessary to replenish my stock yesterday. Here are the beautiful pastel yarns I picked up at Yarn Cravin' (I already had the spring pastel wools).
I couldn't resist.
Here is a photo of the LW scarf I knitted for my daughter for Christmas. (obviously all rolled up)
She and I both agree that wearing a little soft wool around your neck on some of these blustery winter days feels quite comfy and luxurious.
Stitching - I am working on the 2013 SAL from Attic Needlework entitled The Ann Bowers Sampler from The Examplarery. I am right on the stitching schedule, so feel good about my start. I am enjoying Ann very much, as well as stitching for the first time using my wooden frame from England. More on both of those in the near future.
I hope to hear from some of you...I know I have neglected everything online for months (except Pinterest!!).
Take care, keep cozy and warm, and I will be back soon.
