February Lady Sweater, River City Knitters and Coordinated Colors

Saturday, February 28, we had a charity-wear-your-pjs-knit-in for our Guild meeting. You can imagine! Ok, picture in your mind a public library. Next, pajama clad knitters with knitting paraphernalia, trooping into a public library... got that image ... well, you're almost there then! Some folks came out totally decked in pajamas, others arrived decorously clad in goin' to meetin' clothing. We were an unusual ensemble this month!

Unbeknownst to me, several other members of RCK were also knitting the February Lady Sweater! I was wearing mine. Oh, didn't I mention yet that I

FINISHED HER?

I received lots of positive comments (thank you all!). Five of us, I think, were posed for a photo - 2 completed projects and three WIPs. RC, one of the group who is a professional photographer, took some photographs.


After the meeting Chris and I headed east toward Newport News and Yorktown. Destination? Coordinated Colors! I had not been by to see Sherri and her wonderful array of yarns in a while, and I wanted to buy some specific yarn for the Regional Yarn Swap (Ravelry). The day was overcast but it had not started to rain when we hit the road, but as we passed out of the metro area, it started as a drizzle. As we headed east, we went into it. Evidently the rain was coming west as we were driving east. I spent about an hour wandering about the shop touching yarn and reading labels. I purchased 2 different yarns for my swappee and some other schtuff. I don't want to say too much b/c I have not mailed the package yet. It is still in the assembly stage. CC has such a variety of yarns it is difficult to choose among them! Please go see the shop in person or if you can't, you can always call or email to see if they carry what you are looking for. They ship...! Also, Sherri was working up her own little March Madness sale while I was there!

Your sweater is definitely one of the nicer ones I've seen and I looked at a lot of them from that pattern on Ravelry.
