GW 2014

i'm springing forward into the new week after a fantabulous weekend. our annual  'girls weekend' was hosted by my lovely cousin in emmaus, pa. we gathered on friday, all driving in from distant points. one car was from the boston area, and mine from upstate new york. we timed arrival perfectly and i got to visit her local yarn store, conversational threads. several years ago i had visited and liked it, but it has evolved into this amazing space filled with great stock.

if you've ever walked into a store and felt like you could settle in, this was the spot. staff was friendly and helpful.... in a good way. i wandered, fondled and purchased. the first purchase of girls weekend. we ate, shopped and chatted away friday evening.
saturday morning, half the group headed out to a 5k run, and the rest of us walked kathie's neighborhood. the walkers finished first and were ready to to go. on the way to the yarn shop, a used book store caught our attention. i dropped my two sisters there and went on alone to conversational threads.
i finished zuzu's petals on the trip down. with my penchant for repeat knitting, i was eager to cast another on. i talked my sister into one for her birthday gift and let her pick a color. or a non-color since she chose madelinetosh dk in subtle dove. there were a few other things that hopped in my bag, shawl swirls, key chain, malabrigo roving. perfect morning!
we met up with the rest of the gang at an outdoor mall, and continued eating and shopping!
sunday we parted, caught up on the latest family news!

i was able to get some knitting done on the ride home, and have zuzu #1 blocking.

hope to have zuzu#2 done this week!

Looks and sounds like you all had a great time. Can't wait to see ZuZu in real life.
