I spent the first part of last week shooting my new class for Craftsy... want proof?
Denver Restaurant week, mmmm, Rioja with Kellen was SUPERB!
Mole in our future! Then, Stefanie and I went out and talked for hours. I adore taking my online friendships and making them REAL! (in typical fashion I was so busy chatting I forgot to take pictures for proof of our good time, you'll just have to believe me!)
Then it was time for a 24-hour vacation... I arranged a blind-date with Anne of Flax and Twine! We've chatted on-line (and on the phone) but never met in person... I even upped the ante by suggesting we go back-country skiing, something I've always wanted to do in Colorado! BEST.BLINDDATE.EVER
The Loopy Ewe for Knit Night.... if you are anywhere near Fort Collins, visiting is a MUST! Sheri and her elves have done a fabulous job with their new space!
|Clockwise: Anne and myself high on yarn fumes, a WHOLE wall of lornas laces, some new additions to my stash, sock yarn as far as the eye can see....|
The next morning I was entertained by Anne's family as I watched 3 kids under the age of 9, 2 parents, and one insanely cute 8-month-old-rottweiler-German shepherd puppy get ready for their day.... we then met more friends at Tangerine for brunch, and it was time for me to head home! Phew! Could someone remind me to do that more often? A HUGE thankyou to Anne and her family for their genuinely lovely hospitality! I look forward to returning the favor someday!
But, I bet you just read all of that because you want to know the winner of the yarn spinner, right? Congrats go to Misha!!!!! Btw, if you didn't win, David will be stocking more yarn spinners soon (I think we "made" him sell out!), just go favorite his Etsy shop and then you'll see when he has more in stock!
