Great Chardon Visit
Yesterday My Mom and I went to Doogan's restaurant in Chardon, Oh to meet my new friend and her Mom for lunch. I was so excited for the 2 Mom's to meet as they are so much alike and so close in age. Both are widows. And they hit it right off. We had a great lunch. Then we went to KotS in Chardon, Oh, so I could spend some Christmas money on the yarn I wanted to buy to make the Einstein Coat. The link is a ravelry link so I apologize to any readers not on ravelry. If you are not on ravelry you can sign up for an invite here. It is really a great knit and crochet community.
So there is a pic of my friend, the 2 Moms and the einstein coat that I started.
I really love the yarn and the color I bought. The store sample that I tried on is made from this yarn but in a different color. At first I thought I wanted that color--but I really like the one I am using much more. It is being made from Araucania Nature Wool Chunky Multi Color #201. I love the fit and feel of this coat. I am making size Medium. The pattern is from Sally Melville's book The Knitting Experience: Book 1: The Knit Stitch. Hope to post a few Christmas pics soon, but today I am taking a break and knitting.
We have had a very busy holiday season. Monday we buried a very dear friend--so there has not been a lot of time to knit. I will work Thursday and Saturday.
Happy knitting to all.
