Weekend in Richmond

I had a great weekend in Richmond. Teddy stowed along in my knitting bag and had a great time as well.

On Friday night he got to wear the sock toe that L-B was knitting:

On Saturday he accompanied us to one of my favorite knitting places in the world — The Yarn Lounge. There was cake!

And I worked on my shawlette in-progress in-between signing books.

All too soon it was time to board a train and head back home. Thanks to L-B, Stewart and Melanie at The Yarn Lounge, and all the knitters who stopped by to help make it a great weekend.

It was tough to leave, but I am always happy to return home to this:
