It's about time

Hello everyone. I know you are agreeing with me. It's been way to long. I have written a post in my head a couple of times. I even started a draft. All I know is that it's true what they say about time. It stops for no one. The summer has flown by. Fall is just around the corner. It feels like before you know it, winter will be here. Okay enough of the this pity party about why I haven't blogged. I wanted to share this past weekends outings♥
 We had the opportunity to visit the new Looped Yarn Works in Wash. D.C. and liked it very much.

The space was beautiful and it had a lot of light and gorgeous yarns displayed nicely throughout the store.
They carry a nice selection of yarns. Malabrigo, Berocco, Koigu, Rowan, Frog Tree, Classic Elite, SWTC, Blue Heron and Tilli Tomas," Just to name a few. They also have some staples like Cascade 220.

KnitGirllls meetup
Then on Monday, I found out that The KnitGirllls  LaLa and Les were going to be at Fibre Space, sooooooo we went to meet them. It was fun to see them in person and hang out and knit with them just like on the Video cast.  They were staying with Wendy, so it was my chance to meet her as well. We had a great time while they were waiting around to catch their flight back home. Thanks Les and LaLa♥ It was nice to meet you and see you in person. I know my friend Bev would have loved to been there to meet you in person too.

Thanks for your kindness, that baby sweater is still my favorite! I have one more panel of sheep to make and the sheep blanket for my soon grandson-to-be will be finished. Looks like you had fun at the new shop. Alas, one of my favorite yarn shops here closed up!
