On Wednesday I met up with Jane for lunch and a bit of retail therapy.
I'll post about where we ate tomorrow; decided I would get my side of "this" story in before Jane adds here two cents....LOL
We called into the hobby store as Jane noticed they sold wool. There was a woman that was inquiring about some wool/yarn that you make into a scarf. The young lady in the store was demonstrating how to knit it, so Jane and I decided to watch. Now the woman and Jane managed to understand the procedure (is that the word,) but of course I didn't "get it!!" Anyhow the young lady let me have a go and I managed to knit a row. So Jane and I decided we would have a go at knitting a scarf. Jane and I of course wanted the same colour ball of wool; so being the bigger person (in more way's than one!!) I let her have the grey and pink ball , while I took the purple ball as it matches my new Vera Bradley handbag.
So that's our project over the next few months, to knit a scarf. Now I made a start on mine on Wednesday night, as I figured I would remember what to do.......wrong, wrong, wrong. Had to go on YouTube to see how to cast on and knit it. It seems like it's idiot proof as I have got a bit knitted. Jane can knit so it will be a doddle for her, me; well don't expect me to knit for the Olympics but I think I may have the hang of it.
Now I would love to say I knitted this, but I picked this set up for under $25 for the lady who is having her baby. It's gorgeous isn't it?
Update 7:30 am Thursday: Krippa had a baby girl yesterday (12th), no name yet, don't know what time, other than it ended up with a c-section and I think 7lbs 2 or 4 oz. Mother and baby doing well.
So these in a store, nothing much to say about the sign, other than it's a strange name for a line of wallets don't you think?
We called in at the Mariposa Market Bakery for our special coffee's. In my case I had a white peppermint hot chocolate. and Jane had a gingerbread latte.
They of course had a wonderful cakes on display like always.
We had a lovely time that's for sure, and will post more photos tomorrow.
