Wrapping Up The West Coast

Wow! It's  hard to believe we have been home for a week now. The last couple of days/events were a whirlwind of activity.

We had a good ride over the mountain from Eureka to Ashland, Oregon.

Our next destination was The Web-Sters for a luncheon combined with all kinds of yarny fun. Betsy talked about the history of the company and Heather talked about the yarns and discussed the ins and outs of why certain fiber blends work so well. It was a more intimate group, and lots of them tried on garments - one of the benefits of seeing our knitted pieces in person!  The cooler temps outside led to two of our woolier/warmer yarns getting a lot of attention - they loved Telluride and Camelot!

We headed out right after The Web-sters event to get a head start on our trip for the next day - we had another mountain pass to get through as we aimed for Mt. Shasta, CA. Once we settled in we were not only treated to some local live entertainment, the next morning Betsy had a chance to see her niece and family for breakfast.

The driving was a bit sloppy as we headed to Knitique in Elk Grove on Saturday.

It was worth it, as we were welcomed by a full house of enthusiast knitters and were treated to a customer "CEY project" show and tell. Again, after a little talk, lots of people tried on samples and made their project choices.

 We made our way to the last hotel night, had "breakfast for dinner", and tried to make sense of our suitcases!

The trip was sooo much fun. Thousands of miles covered. Beautiful sites. A few quick family visits. Best of all, we were able to meet a whole bunch of yarn lovers!

Last but not least, a great big thank you to all the welcoming shop owners and dedicated knitters and crocheters!

Til next time,
Betsy & Heather
