Back At Home
I have been in San Francisco for the past few days. I just got home yesterday. My husband had a business trip and I got to tag along. I had the days by myself and I had a lot of fun exploring. I visited Union Square, Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, China Town and Alcatraz. Paul's Aunt Mariesa came in from Woodland and I had a wonderful day with her going to a fabulous knitting shop, Imagiknit and shopping in Japan Town. She bought me the gorgeous box of Japanese candy. The candy is wrapped so beautifully that I am going to enjoy looking at them for a while before I sample them. I am doing the "Follow Your Arrow" mystery knit along on Ravelry. We are making a shawl clue by clue. The yarn I chose is Madelinetosh Merino Light in Baroque Violet and Torchere. We just received our first clue yesterday so there is still plenty of time to join in. I also found some wonderful yarn called "Cherry" it has cherries with crocheted stems and leaves hanging from it. You can catch a glimpse of it in the second picture. I came home to find a wonderful present from my longarm quilter/friend, Mary. She made this gorgeous bag in repro prints. I was in need of an overnight bag and this will work wonderfully. What a sweet lady she is. I don't get to see her now that we've moved and this gift touched me deeply. Have a wonderful day, friends. The sun is shining and calling me outside - a whopping 34 degrees which lately, could pass as a heat wave!
