AUTHOR: Knitti-me TITLE: SF and an FO DATE: 1:45:00 PM ----- BODY:
Saturday the kids and I met up with friends and family in San Francisco to celebrate the life of my sister-in-law's father who passed away in December. After a touching service and lunch we all gathered on top of Twin Peaks to scatter Jim's ashes, which was his last request. Here is a view looking down Market Street into downtown. It was a beautiful day, albeit a bit windy. Here I am with my precious kids. FYI, I'm standing on a short wall; both my kids tower over me. Son just hit 6' and is still going strong. On the way down the hill, much to my kid's dismay, I stopped by ImagiKnit. The shop literally has floor to ceiling shelves full of high-end yarns with lots of comfy couches and chairs to sit and knit. Despite being surrounded by loveliness, I only came away with the "Decidedly Different Scarves" pattern from Stitch Diva Studios after seeing a beautiful store model. ~~~ And here is another Cape Bohemia, my third one, knit from some fabulous La Boheme from Fiesta Yarns, produced from the Embarrassingly Large Yarn Stash, I might add. I think I may knit Ally a matching doggy Cape Bohemia - uh, maybe not. ~~~ On a personal note, thank you for all your kind words of encouragement. It has been a difficult road, but I think I may be on the upward swing.
