... have Shopfinder, will shop! Here I am in the heart of New England visiting family, and wouldn't you know my Knitter's mag Shopfinder came the day I left home. So I've been making use of it, naturally. So far I've hit 5 yarn stores, with at least one more in my future before I get on the plane for home. I've been taking pictures, but since I'm on a borrowed computer it doesn't seem right to download all my yarny photos onto it. Just wait though, once I'm back on my own machine I'll make up for lost time. In the meantime, here's a shot of my grandkitten, Sam I Am. He's a beautiful Maine Coon (rescued) who lives here. He's been a little shy but so far he does love him some gramma rubs! Anyway, I guess I'm making up for missing my Pasadena Daytimers' yarn crawl and doing one of my own. My daughter-in-law has fallen onto the wagon with me--so far she's bought new needles, started a prayer shawl, and bought some velvety chenille to make a scarf. It's probably a good thing I'm so far away--she'd be knitting with me all the time! Seriously, she's a darling, and I'd love to be able to spend more time with her. But then, I feel that way about my "kids" on the other coast, too. How ever does one resolve this dilemma??
Yarn pics, and also quilt pics (found a delicious quilt shop here, too) coming soon!
