We arrived at my sister's place around dinner time. My sister graciously invited us for a weekend visit since we had a great time together at the cabin. Also during this visit, there was the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Show. We attended just on the Saturday to do some yarn shopping, and drooling at the expensive stuff. Did you know sequins are big in knitting? Not my style but it apparently is hot right now.
These violets sit on her window sill. Aren't they pretty? I am not very gifted in the growing plants department. Right now I am killing an amaryllis. I just do not think it is going to bloom now. Over watering is my downfall every single time.
Whoop! This is what I bought at the show. Lovely lovely yarn. As you can see I was in a gray/purple mood and a green/yellow mood. I have no idea what I am going to knit yet. The green on the far left is becoming a hat and that is as far as I thought about it.
This is my sister's sewing/craft room. I thought it would be neat to share. She has an entire wall of shelving. See that yarn? Yeah. I want it too. That top shelf of yarn looks pretty nice to me-and the wool wash near the bears. You can never have too much wool wash. The raggedy Ann and Andy were made by our mother. I have a set of them too :)
We all had a great time together. We usually have all of our children when we visit and although we missed them, we had a fun time just being the four of us.
