Saturday was filled with classes & shopping the market. And while my classes were a bit to easy/beginner for me, I enjoyed the day. The trip was well worth it to get to spend time with the girls! And I did get some great yarn & fiber at the market, plus a little clear zippered KDO bag for a souvenir.
Then after a wonderful dinner together at Duke's Riverside Bar & Grill we all headed out. Chan & I arrived back at her home about 10:30pm or so.... we stayed up talking & spinning.
Unfortunately Sunday morning came way too soon! Chan & I had plans to visit a local yarn shop at noon, so we played with Sissy & practiced our spinning. We also found out that bobbins do not make good chew toys for dogs.... or maybe they do! :)
But how could you get mad at this sweet face!?! We aren't sure if she took it cause it looked like a good toy or if she was mad at us for spinning & not playing with her. And to be honest she took it from the seat right behind me! LOL She gave me such a pitiful look when I took it away from her.... she knows how to work her humans. Never fear Sissy is having new bobbins sent to me from Jan.While we were getting ready for the yarn shop trip poor Sissy got stung by several Yellow Jackets (bees). Her poor face was swelling something awful & the pain or the stress made her sick, so Chan loaded her up in the car & headed to the vet's office. I finished packing my things back in the Blazer & headed for home. We will visit the yarn shop another time....
Finally pulled back into my driveway at 6pm Sunday evening! It was a loooooong trip, lots of driving in a few short days. But SO worth it to spend time with the girls!
I do have a few finished projects to show you too. This is the hat that I knit for donation at KDO. Just a simple rolled brim hat...And I finished my purple Circular Shrug in time to wear it to KDO on Saturday!!And last but not least.... I promised you a photo of the pretty fiber that Robin gave me last week when we met. Here it is, Purple Murple from Hippie Art Chick Fibers, can't wait to get spinning on all this fiber I have now! :)I sure hope everyone had as wonderful weekend as I did! It was so awesome to meet so many of my blog buddies the past week!! We MUST get together again soon!
