A wonderful whirlwind this past week has been. Last weekend my sister and I went with the girls up to our family friend's cabin. It was a perfect weekend! So fun to spend so much time with the little magpie!
Can you just smell the fresh air?! So lovely.
We took my sister and the magpie to the town of Murphy's, where lil' snowboarder and I have discovered the best cupcakes right next to a fabulous yarn, tea, and book store, Maisie Blue.
Baby's first yarn store visit!!
Yes, I took pictures of her all weekend! Sunday we drove up to Bear Valley to hang out in the snow! Lil' Snowboarder took her first ski lesson! Soooooo proud of her....she wanted to go back the next day, but we had to come home...she's ready to hit the slopes!
My Gobi Hat came in handy in the snow! By the way, for those of you who asked back in December, the pattern is now available outside of the Bare Naked Wools Club. This fabulous pattern is now available over at the knitspot site.
From the mountains and snow we fast forward a few days to Stitches West! Such a fun few days of yarn and knitting friends! I helped Anzula set up their booth this year....I love these ladies and the yarn is to. die. for. I've been spoiled knitting up so many of my designs with their yarns!
Note Wish I Might in the corner there.
And Holbrook and Blue Lake Springs.
Thank you Tracy for your fabulous quick knitting of a San Mateo sample in Cloud! It is gorgeous! My new design (coming soon!!!) is in Cloud and it is sooooo amazing when it blocks!
It was pretty awesome to see the Yarnover Truck on the show floor and in person!
I think Cheeky Attitude is thinking about a northern california franchise! haha! I have to say it was pretty awesome to walk the show floor with my friends this weekend and not have to "work" at a booth. Of course, when we got to the Plucky Knitter booth, that wasn't so good for my wallet....haha!
It was pretty awesome to see Sarah's booth do so well this weekend. She's come a long way since our little trunk show at our friend's house a few years ago! I can't wait to show you the pretty yarns I bought!
There was knitting progress too! Here is my new Shalimar Yarns Hat design for the upcoming Shalimarch Celebration! I'm having a sale right now for those of you planning to knit one of my designs for it.....details are at the end of this post. And yes, that is a Hermione stitch marker! I couldn't resist the set from Stitches.
Saturday I drove up to Folsom to hang out with my nephew! I'm on auntie duty until Tuesday morning.....he had just come home from a memorial service when I took this picture...
All dressed up! And growing up! I can't believe he is almost 7!?!
He quickly changed into something more comfortable....gotta love these California winters...
Now I must to bed because I have an early wake up call to get this kid to school on time! What a fun week this has been. I hope you've had a lovely week too!
