what my Friend did on her Summer Vacation…

Being trapped in the Cul-de-Sac that is the MidWest sometimes prevents my brain from tripping naturally around the greater North American region. Not So for my good friend Lorri, who just returned from a fabulous biking adventure up (see what I mean) in Nova Scotia!

One of her stops was River John. And what happened in River John? Why she scooped up a treasure of souvenirs for her little buddy in Chicago: MOI :)

Isn’t this the most beautiful yarn ever? AND it is coupled with some handmade Birch Swing needles – all this came from the Lismore Sheep Farm – crafted by John Crawford…

The very best thing about this is that Lorri gave me a paper sack in the lobby of the building where we both work. I pulled it out and started weeping! Why the tears? (beside the usual sentimentality between good friends?) well – my two oldest friends are not knitters – and for Lorri to NAIL IT like this just blew me away!

b.LIMEY, Mate! I am the luckiest girl alive!
