rosie's-8On Sunday morning I said goodbye to Connie and her husband and took the train to Philadelphia, where Courtney and Stacey from Rosie’s yarn cellar met me. We took the samples to the store and went for a picnic lunch in the park before we headed back to find everything beautifully arranged.

On Monday I spent a much needed day by myself (not that I haven’t been having fun meeting so many new people but I needed a little time to recover!).

and intriguing boutiques.

Yesterday I met up with Kateand Courtney for breakfast before visiting the Manos and Kelbourne Woolenswarehouse, where I might have been convinced to take some yarn! There were also cupcakes, a visit to the park and yummy Thai curry.

If you’re in Philly and didn’t get a chance to say hello on Sunday I’ll be at the Rosie’s yarn cellar knitting circle this evening.

.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
