JAUNT TO GLOUCESTER, MA

Last weekend was so much fun...It was spent in one of my favorite places ever...Gloucester, MA! Rich & I had such a wonderful time (except poor Rich was very sick & guess who's sick now). It's been a rough week with a heck of a cold, so not much has gotten done!
While in Gloucester, we visited my favorite yarn shop in the area...COVETED YARN. Robert, the owner & his assistant, Astrid were very gracious hosts! If you are ever in the area, Coveted Yarn is a must see. The shop is jam packed with gorgeous yarns...many sensory delights to be had ~ including Blue Heron & Noro yarns...2 of my favs!
Here are a few pictures of the goodies I came home with...Blue Heron Beaded Rayon (on sale)!, gorgeous Blue Heron Rayon Metallic that I just couldn't live without...lol, & a gorgeous skein of Frolicking Feet from Done Roving in Christmas Cactus colorway. Robert was so very generous to send me home with the Frolicking Feet yarn all because I just adored the colorway. It looks like an explosion of autumn leaves in every color imaginable. Hopefully I'll feel better this week & can get down to business swatching the yarn. I can't wait to see what creations await!
Thank you Robert & Astrid for a fun visit...Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Yet another reason to fall in love with Gloucester...In addition to being by the ocean, all the gorgeous sights & sounds, great seafood, chocolate/fudge shops, yarn & most importantly...a wonderful partner to experience them all with...who could ever ask for more!!!

Till next time...

I LOVE your felted entrelac bag: I have been searching high and low for an awesome bag pattern like this. Can you share it? Or, if there are copyright issues, can you PLEASE tell me where I can buy the pattern.

You are such and inspiration and I ADORE your blog. Just read about your trip to Quechee, VT: I live about 15 minutes from there!

Anyway, thanks for any information you can give me about the bag. And keep writing--reading your words is a treat.
