Capitola Cliffs

I am having the most wonderful time here in California. What a beautiful place, full of beautiful people. Stitches West was as wonderful as ever, I took some inspiring classes and am fired up with new techniques to practice. Carrie and I are spending this, my last day, relaxing in the pretty little seaside town of Capitola, before I must return to reality tonight.

I bought this Rare Gem skein of STR on the last day of Stitches. It had been calling my name all weekend, but with plenty (by my standards) of sock yarn already at home, I said that if it was left on Sunday, it would be fate. Funny how fate works.
I'm calling it Capitola Cliffs, because, look at the view from the window.....
If that's not a match made in heaven, I don't know what is :0)
A huge thank you to Carrie for putting me up during Stitches West, and to Terry for lending us her Capitola retreat :0) I have had a fabulous time and hope to see y'all, same time next year :0)

I'm so sad I missed you at Stitches! Capitola is a fun place --hopefully you got some nice weather!

I think that would make a nice shawl so every time you wear it you have a reminder of the wonderful time you had at Stitches.
