SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Back from Retreat, and I am Pooped but Happy

Had a great time in Little Switzerland!  Good weather, except for a little fog on Friday (which broke up).


I bought some yarn for me (for a baby afghan), and some was in our retreat goodie bags (something from Berroco, very ribbony, mine was black and silver), and I won a ball of Dragonfly yarn (colorway: "Van Gogh's Sunflowers"), and a pattern (Momijigari).  If you are on Ravelry, there's a link to the pattern here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/momijigari , and to the yarn here: http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/dragonfly-fibers-djinni-sock (the colorway is pictured on page 3, I think).


I am home, tired but happy, and had 128 emails waiting for me!
