I had a great day yesterday; I drove up to Williamsburg to meet Deborah, of Caffeine Girl. She's in the area visiting a relative and we both decided it would be a great opportunity to meet face to face and have a knit-in. And we did. Despite meeting up at a lovely yarn store, we both decided to resist temptation and went to the coffee shop across the street to sit and knit. The two hours flew by; I'm sure I could have sat there all day. We're already planning to meet up again any time she makes the trip back.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take any pictures!! She was working on a Ysolda Teague shawl pattern, and I worked on my handspun scarf. K1, P1, is about all the pattern following I can do while talking. Consequently, I'm almost done.
Here's a closeup of the lovely yarn.
Next up is a baby sweater for my niece's friend. I'm going to use this pattern and some Jelly Beenz yarn I have in my stash. It should work up rather quickly, as it's an easy pattern that I've done once already.
After I got back from Williamsburg, I picked up S and we went to lunch, I got my haircut, and then we hung out at another coffee shop before she had to go to work. I also got a surprise in the mail yesterday. My oldest daughter sent me this postcard she had made using one of the photos she took of her tomatoes.
I think it looks frame worthy, don't you?
Today is a Beach Friday, and although there's a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon, I think the morning and midday are supposed to be clear, so off I go. I hope you have a great weekend!
