Didn't realize I was a City Mouse...but I am.

I had such a great time in Philadelphia. Although I was there for a family wedding, I think the highlight was meeting the self-proclaimed Country Mouse, BritKnitter! I am so appreciative of her gutziness and steadfast determination to come into Philadelphia from BritKnitterville to meet little old me. I know, I'm not really all that little. Nevermind that.

We met on what turned out to be a very pretty, sunny, but grossly muggy day at a neat little shop called Rosie's Yarn Cellar. The staff was friendly (and searching Ravelry while we were there). We each chose a souvenier and got the heck out of there because if it was muggy outside, inside it was like a slow broiling sauna. Blech.

We chatted like old friends and new friends all at once. I enjoyed meeting BritKnitter so much, though I felt we had already known each other for a long time too. I love the blogosphere.

BritKnitter got some Noro, very exciting indeed. The yarn I got is so soft, I want to carry it with me everywhere. I won't though.


  1. I really had a great time, too. Such a fun day! Can't wait to see what you cast on with that lovely yarn!

  2. Oh! I ordered some of that Ella Rae "lace" from The Loopy Ewe a couple of weeks ago. Yummy stuff. I think mine will have to become a lace scarf, unless I make myself sick of lace scarves before I get to it.

  3. I am learning how to knit right now, but I'm not the best at it!

    As a fellow dog lover I wanted to let you know about a giveaway taking place on my blog for PUPCAKES! :)

    Here's the link to the giveaway:

  4. Very pretty yarn. It must be fun to meet a blogger you've chatted with for ages, but never met. Maybe someday I'll get the chance. I'd like to drive across country meeting my bloggy friends.

  5. Pretty yarn!

    Don't ya just love it when you finally get to meet your blog buddies? :)
