After the sheep and wool festival I said goodby to Laura, Jess, Casey and Mary Heather at BWI airport and made my way to DC, where the wonderful Emily and her husband hosted me. On Tuesday I met up with the super talented Olga.We went to the Louise Bourgeois exhbition at the Hirshorn which was wonderful – I’d seen some of the work in it before but it was great to see everything together. Then we met up with Pamand Elspeth for lunch at the American Indian museum – really good, especially for a museum cafe! Pam and Elspeth had to leave but Olga and I hung out for a while, knitting and videoing our very different knitting styles.

We wandered around for a while and I roped Olga into participating in another silly 365 – jumping in front of the Capitol.

On Wednesday I visited Knit Happens, a rather adorable store in Alexandria. Somehow I convinced Olga that she would like to do the finishing on my red Vivian’s zip, it’s so perfect now!

I had so much fun chatting to knitters, eating cookies and signing books.

I even found a cute February Lady Sweater that really should be mine, don’t you think?

Vilde, very genorously drove a 5 hour round trip in horrid weather to pick me up from Knit Happens and take me to Charlottesville. Last night I visited The Needle Lady, where they took my sample suitcase and displayed everything so well.

More hanging out with knitters – lots of fun.

Today we’re going to visit the local landmark Monticello and tomorrow I’ll be at Lovely Yarns in Baltimore – it would be great to see you if you’re in the area. Next week I’ll be in Boston, so if you have a yarn store etc that you’d like me to come to please do get in touch.

Birthday Sale Goes Live Today...

.... 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.
