Back from Life

Img_3936 After such a fabulous trip east with lots of woImg_3938 nderful knitting and visiting, I came home only to discover no internet!  I tried to fix it unsuccessfully, and then when Keith made it home he also didn't have any luck.  Apparently the modem died while we were gone and it took a little while to get a new one and reconfigure the wireless. So to catch up a bit, during my visit I got  down to the Cape for a long overdue visit with my sister and step mom and their adorable kitty.  Work came back in full force the week I got back, followed by us both being a bit under the weather.  Then last night I was fortunate to receive a last minute invite last week to the Billy Joel concert,  our company has a box at the Pepsi center and their was an extra ticket!!  Boy does he put on a great concert.Img_3958 Img_3949  Img_3962_2

Sunday Crafting

Img_3880r Img_3888 Early Sunday was a perfect snowy New England morning and there was lots of knitting going on.  Christine was helping out one of our newer knitters Img_3890_2 and Img_3892 Mary  was intently working away on her sock.  From knitting Julie and I went by Idylwilde to lImg_3891 ook around.  I Img_3896r haven't quite found such a neat "farm stand" in Boulder. Look at these veggies! Then off to Quilter's Way where I picked up the fabric for the lastest baImg_3904 by quilt I will be making.   As if this wasn't enough we went back to Julie's and she was so kind as to show Img_3913 me her soap making secrets.  I will definitely be trying this at home.  It isn't near as scary as it sounds :).

Img_3929 And to top it off Jason had made a wonderful dinner (gone before pictures) and dessert. Img_3908

Saturday Fun

  Img_3842   I had the good fortune this weekend to go back East and hang out with the gals. Today Img_3844r_3 Crystal, this little guy, Julie and I headed up  to The Fiber Studio,  took a bit of a detour to Apple Tree Fabrics, then on to The Elegant Ewe.  We found the best stash of Noro Sock yarn, some Habu stainless steel and wool yarn, and I also picked up some Lorna's laces.  Before heading back to MA we had a lovely lunch aImg_3848t The Common Man  .Img_3862

Despite the snow this evening we met up with some more wonderful knitterly friends for dinner and then headed back to Julie's to knit and chat.Img_3869_2  Img_3856   Img_3868
