We took the weekend off for an “away date.” We drove to Baltimore to see the model train show, where I got an interesting book about the Pennsy Railroad, Conemaugh Branch. Little known fact about me – I have lots of old books about steel mills, railroads, and coal mines.
From the train show we headed back towards the city so that I could visit Spinster Yarns and Fibers on Harford Rd. I did a little stash-enhancing and also got to visit with some old friends. Andrea carries some unusual yarns that I have not seen in any other shops, including yarn from Thirteen Mile Yarns, who produce predator-friendly, plant-dyed organic yarns.
We spent the night at the Inner Harbor and had a fabulous dinner – Restaurant Week in Baltimore was concluding.
Knitting has been slow the past week, work interfered. But last weekend I was able to give my friend Jen her new Clapotis. It will keep her snuggly in her chilly office and she loved the colors.
Since I do not have photos to post with this entry – click on over to the Red Scarf Gallery, where photos are up now that the scarves are ready to be sent.
