Catch up time
Stopped by a friends house in SI to drop off a book and inspect her "yarnatorium" LOL. It's every knitter's dream. Wall-to-wall and ceiling to floor cabinets all filled with yarn and fabrics. A lovely chair by the window with a round table for the phone, and on the opposite wall her sewing machine cabinet and chair. Just made you want to sit down and knit right away! It was organized and welcoming.
Our favorite restaurant, Il Pomadoro, has fallen a notch! Don't know if the owner wasn't there or they changed chef's but it just wasn't up to par. I overheard patrons at the table behind me speaking about another restaurant that would "give Il Pomadoro a run for it's money" but I didn't catch the name! And to think, my children used to say I could hear the grass grow. Guess that's what happens when you get old, oops excuse me, older :-).
Also stopped by another dear friends house, a knitter of course, for a lovely visit on Sunday. We inspected each other's work and discussed future projects over a glass of soda. Hoping to get together this Sunday also.
Monday night knitting was missing a very prominent member - Trek is off enjoying a wedding and searching the local yarn store. She was definitely missed. Gave J over at Knit N Things the beginnings of Mystery Shawl 3 on double pointed needles. I took it home to get it started for her 'cause I couldn't seem to do it on Thursday when we were together :-( It's very, very difficult to get started and since I talked her into doing this with me it was the least I could do. Even though I'm almost done with the second chart I have the sneaking suspicion she'll finish ahead of me LOL.
The yarn store in Englewood is closing - they are moving to Vermont. She will run an internet store and also open another store attached to her house when she gets there. I think I'll pay a visit this Saturday before she's totally sold out of everything LOL. Always up for a road trip to the yarn store, especially one that's having a BIG sale!
Lady Eleanor is moving right along and I'll be very glad when it's done. It's almost finished and although I enjoy working on it - it's time - be done I say, be done! Even when it's done, it's not done until the fringe is on it and I'm not looking forward to that part of it. Pictures soon.
