As you may have seen in various places, we had a second gathering last Saturday of knitbloggers from around Southeast New England. Kristen, Debby, Sarah, Carol, Cindy, Kimberly, Greeley, Heather and I descended upon Sakonnet Purls to ogle (and buy!) yarn and knit for a couple of hours. I picked up some Plymouth Encore, 3 balls of Regia sock yarn (hopefully this will be enough for Cookie A’s German Stocking pattern!), and some cotton yarn for a hat. I also acquired a second set of Addi Lace circulars and promptly transferred a shawl over. I miss the extra grab the Addi Naturas had on the lace weight alpaca yarn, but I definitely prefer the joins and pointiness of the Addi Lace needles.
Kimberly gave me a very nice going-away present--two skeins of sock yarn from Farmhouse Yarns and a bottle of coffee syrup. Thanks, Kimberly!

It was such a nice afternoon! I am sad that you are leaving us, but hopefully you will visit often!

Kristen said...

It was good to get together before you leave. Yay, coffee syrup to remind you of RI! Now to follow the adventures of sloth-knits across the country.

Funny - Kristen sent me some coffee syrup after I moved to CA!

Knitbloggerstock, eh? What did you crazy knitting hippies do last Saturday?

Whatever it was, it looks like a great time! I'm very sorry I couldn't be there for this one.

The blogger meetup was so much fun! It's so good to put a knit blog with a face. Best wishes for a happy move. I look forward to reading about your moving adventures and of course your knitting and spinning.
