Richmond Weekend

I had a great weekend in Richmond! The only drawback is that I developed a sore throat on Friday on the train going down, and by the time I came home I had a low-grade fever as well. Today it has blossomed into a full-fledged cold. (I’d like to blame the cold on being in a confined space on the train, but considering the incubation time needed, it’s likely I was already infected.)

In spite of feeling poorly, it was a fun weekend! L-B picked me up at the train station and we met up with fellow KnitPlurker Aimee (who drove up from North Carolina) for lunch. After lunch we met up with Frances, another NC KnitPlurker! We all checked into a hotel and had a fun afternoon and evening of knitting, talking, and laughing, joined by local knitters Lou and Alice.

Saturday was a book-signing at one my favorite yarn shops — The Yarn Lounge. We had a wonderful day meeting online acquaintances and seeing old friends again. There may have been some stash enhancement as well . . .

I’m not feeling up to a full post today but I wanted to say thank you to everyone involved for the fun weekend, and Lucy wanted to say thank you for the fresh catnip and for this:


“Thank you for my beautiful ultrasuede mouse, Issy!”
