So Much Fun!

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!


  1. So glad you had a great time visiting with Deborah. It's amazing how the internet shrinks our world. The scarf is looking good!

  2. Meeting up with blogging friends is such fun. It really enriches their posts and comments, I think.

    Your scarf is looking very pretty. The colors are blending nicely.

  3. Beautiful scarf and beautiful picture. I think it is frame-worthy especially as your daughter took it. She is talented. Glad you had a great meet up with a blog friend.

    Have a lovely day,
