I have missed you!! Last week was busy starting with a 4:30 a.m. pick-up Monday morning for my flight to FL. The meeting went well – short presentations, good food, plenty of free time and no-one getting too hammered at the open bars we had. I did manage to have a wonderful 80 minute massage on Tuesday afternoon which I really needed. Pure bliss.
Got back home Wednesday mid-day (and promptly took a 2 hour nap – lol). Thursday and Friday were whirlwinds at work. Busy, busy, busy.
But finally Saturday arrived and I met up with Dee!! Such fun. We met at The Lansdale Farmer's Market in the morning and wandered around. It was freezing!! Literally freezing. A friend of Colin's runs the Kimberton CSA and was there with some great veggies (beets, leeks, greens). I also bought some wild mushrooms, a jar of pumpkin spice peanut butter (SO good – in fact I brought it to work today to have on a bagel), and some kind of apple pastry which Fletch had Saturday night. Yum.
After that we headed over to Backyard Beans to sit, sip, knit and chat. What a treat for me!! I haven’t had any local friends who knit and now I do! I would’ve liked to stay longer and go out to lunch and knit some more, but I had to get back and do some grocery shopping. I’m hoping we can meet up again in a couple of weeks.
Close to You is coming along nicely. I’m more than two thirds finished – I think I only have 4 or 5 pattern repeats and then the bind off. I’m excited to have this (almost) finished.
The yarn I'm using is from Valerie - Wandering Cat. It is so soft and beautiful. I don't have the tag with me right now, and of course can't remember what it is, but I do know there is alpaca in it.
Now I’ve got to get to work – this week will be another busy one for me. Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start!
