What a glorious few days I have had in Salt Lake City. Every yarn shop I visit has a story behind it and this store has the most heartwarming history I have ever experienced. I loved every minute of Salt Lake and the longer I was there the more I grew to appreciate the rich history this group of women share. I felt like I was stepping into a close-knit family, literally.
I started my trip with a trip to the local news station for a morning show called Studio 5. It is a great show that included a cooking segment, ski-buying how-to, and a scrap booking segment to name a few. It was the perfect setting for my knitting stuff. The only snag came when the host announced my appearance at the "Wood Cabin" not The Wool Cabin. I couldn't believe it when wood came out of her mouth. Oh well, what are you going to do?
Salt Lake is a beautiful city, really spectacular. The skies were crystal clear, the air was crisp and clean, it was simply refreshing. I took an afternoon walk on Friday and ran across this statue. This may be the best statue I have ever seen. The motion it portrays is fantastic. Yup, this is my favorite statue, it's final. There was a man with a boy on his shoulders nearby but this one was better. Also, this statue perfectly sums up the women I was with. These people are all about kids, babies and family and knitting, knitting, knitting. I could so relate, these are my peeps!
I can't believe the stripes almost match and I didn't even try. I used US size 2 dpns and cast on 48 stitches. These went so fast, they just flew off the needles.
It is good to be home. I will be off again in a couple of short days so today I will rest up and enjoy my family!
Thanks again Suzette and Alison. I will never forget the trip to SLC!
