The hometown Diner

The specials menu at Brian's in Mt. Morris!  Oh, I wish it was a better picture...I had the Hog Melt.

Design elements

A photo taken of a photo during Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's workshop in Efficient knitting.  It was incredibly fun and funny, and she sure has a way of telling a story!

I've been using her method of knitting "lever" style.  However, I needed a few tips at breakfast the next morning to adapt it to circular needles.  It works!

Fling time

We enjoyed the Loopy Ewe Spring Fling in Loveland, Colorado. Here's a taste...
Jenny enjoying a feel of the shawls designed by Franklin Habit.  His lecture was super interesting, and he could hardly speak from hoarseness.
Outside our room window, the Great Plains punctuated by the Budweiser event center.

The attached conference center hosted "The Loopy Lounge", open day and night for knitting, complete with ball winder, swift, and water!

And I got to pose with a fun, gracious Yarn Harlot, while she held my sock!

Then there was the trip to The Loopy Ewe shop in Fort Collins.

Lots of tempting fiber and fabric!

And a shot of the group shot from behind.

Travel. Knit. Love.

I didn't know!  
I didn't know anything.  

We filled a ballroom, with chatter, and knitting and knitted garments.  
It was The Loopy Ewe's Spring Fling! And it was all of those things...

This was one of many Super Shuttles from the Denver International Airport (an hourly occurance),
Heavy on yarn and needles and project bags!
The plains stretched out to the snow-capped mountains, bringing like-minded individuals together.

A knitter is overheard talking to herself..."don't leave home without cable needles..."

No slacking...

Loving the loom...
Finished three towels and a 50" runner. Used half of the warp, so after re-threading a few sections, I'll be in business again, soon.

Always a sock "on hand"!!!  Free pattern Diagonal Rib.
