So I went to England! I've been back for over a week so it's about time I blogged, eh?
England was fantastic. We saw all sorts of interesting things, my favorites being any and all old churches/cathedrals/minsters/abbeys I could find. What can I say, I'm just a churchy kinda gal. Here I am, having climbed all the way to the top of St. Paul's.
See? Happy as a clam in mud.
Another highlight was finally getting to meet one of my favorite knitters, Philippa!
the inaugural meeting of the Transatlantic Sock Sisterhood
I wanted to take Philippa home with me
Philippa and Deri treated us to a picnic in the park, showed us Philippa's fountain and a nice hill and then we spent the rest of the evening in a pub having a fabulous time. The night culminated in getting a little lost on subway and Philippa giving me presents (an excellent combination...I recommend it). She knitted me this plummy hot water bottle cozy, which makes me fantastically happy every time I look at it.
hello. I am snuggly and lovely
She also gave me some yummy British sock yarn. Pictures of that and the yarn I bought in York to come...
This afternoon's assignment?
hello. I am unseamly. and slightly out of focus...
