Traveling Woman

... 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!

I can't wait to see you, your yarn, your yarn pictures, and hear about your yarny travels. Hope your family is doing well!

Miss you lots. I also went to A Stitch in Time the other day and bought lots of pretty mohair on sale. The kitty cat looks so pretty, almost blue in the picture.Our little knitting group isn't the same without you.

Good Heavens, there you are! I haven't had you out of my thoughts for 2 days. I was worried they had you under lock and key so Grandma couldn't get away!

I think you should allow the kids on both coasts to continue to spoil you! Besides, you always have a place to "travel" to.

Love the cat. If I were ever to have another kitty, it would be a Maine Coon.

Miss you here on this coast.

I am so glad you are back, I am so glad you are back, I am so glad you are back...

Can't wait to see all your goodies. Missed you so much. I think you should come to live by me in this tiny town, which is inexpensive. Then, all the kids could visit here and no one would feel bad. We could do a Bed and Breakfast for "old broads that knit." (g) would you be be bored to teats after life in the big city, fast lane?

Thanks for the blog comment...but you can't take my World's Slowest Knitter. You would have been done with this if you had as much time as I did to knit.
