First DAY Knit

January 9, 2008 at 6:06 pm | Posted in 2008, Local Knitters | 2 Comments

I’ve been getting together in the evenings with some friends to knit for about 3 years. We used to meet at a local book store, but now we meet at the library. Today was our first DAY knit meeting. We met at my house and had a great turn out! Steph had a very rare day off and joined us. Trina (w A & E), Ruth & Margaret will hopefully be regulars. We were missing Robin – hopefully she’ll be able to join us in the future. If YOU live in the area, email me and I’ll be sure you know how to join us! 🙂

Here are some pics from our time together:

Yarn Crawl – Done!

We are done! Two Stores, two eating establishments and I’m wiped out! I’m copying some pictures from Theresa’s blog because she got one of my shrug and a fun one of us all laughing that I really enjoyed!

First, my loot!

  • 2 balls of Classic Elite Inca Alpaca in a dark blue. I think it will make a lovely scarf for Hubby!
  • 2 balls of Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed – 85% wool, 10% silk and 5% Cashmere in a tweedy red. Thinking it will make some nice hand warmers or other fun gifts.
  • size 7 Addis (I can never find a 7 when I need one)
  • “Peg It” Knitting Counter. Cindy at Knit Night has one and I love it!! Can’t wait to put it in use!!

Now, for the pictures….

Yarn Crawl Today!!

Today – in about 1.5 hours – I’m heading with three friends to do a bit of yarn fondling gazing!

We are planning to head here and then here and hopefully connect with Theresa before we call it a day! I’ll be sure to share pics of any purchases, etc tonight or tomorrow! 🙂

Bummed!

Last week I found out that a yarn store in West Sacramento was closing and today I found out that the yarn store I love in Davis is closing. I’m so bummed! I also found out someone is opening a store here in Woodland next month, but I was feeling conflicted because I’d hate to have the Davis store close….and now it is. So, now I feel like the Woodland store can’t possibly make it either. (sigh)

I try to buy from local stores whenever possible, but due to our budget I also need to buy online (KnitPicks). I feel guilty. But I honestly can say that I shopped there as much as possible. But I guess I still feel guilty. 😦
