Back Home

We had a wonderful, peaceful five days at Letchworth State Park . The trees were about 60% turned by the time we left. It was so pretty. The weather was great for hiking and sitting and reading and knitting. Warm and sunny.

On the only rainy day, Wednesday, we went to Hammondsport and visited four wineries.

Have to make sure we have enough wine to last through the winter. We're like the squirrels hoarding nuts. I do the same thing with yarn. Always have yarn for a "Storm Sweater". When the snow piles up and driving is not allowed, I can hunker down in front of the fireplace for a couple of days with my storm knitting.

Had my first class at "Have Ewe Any Wool" yarn shop. Making a lace scarf with beads. Never worked with beads before. Nice group of knitters and lovely yarn. It is so nice to be with people who are yarn crazy. As one of the ladies said, the day was so beautiful sunny and in the 70's, we must love knitting to be inside on such a day.
