Well I am happy to report we made it to Charlotte safely. Our trip was for Yolanda to visit her Godmother Lula who had been moved to Hospice this past week, well sadly enough Lula took a turn for the worst and her fight is now over and she has no more suffering. Despite all of this Yolanda is doing okay and she was able to spend time with her cousin.
Behind the scenes CiCi was arranging my visit to the LYS Charlotte Yarn -- which happens to be Crimson Purl’s favorite yarn store. Just so happened everything worked out and we met Stacey that afternoon. And of course, you can’t pass up the opportunity to visit a new yarn store. Even though Yolanda, who is a NON knitter, but as she says she knows when we travel together, I will want to go to the yarn store gave me a time limit in the store, was very nice about it, because of course I went a little over.......BTW, she picked out some yarn and one day--yes one day it will become a FO for her.
Stacey is as nice in person --as she is on her blog. She was very hospitable and it was such a pleasure to meet her. She showed me around and pointed out the unique yarns and helped me pick out some for CiCi. We really had a great visit with her would love to do it again and next time take CiCi.
Regardless of a few ups and downs, the road trip really was a good one!
