Sunday my knitting friend Karol and I took an adventure to Oakland. Our mission, go to Article Pract, shop yarn and meet Kristine Brooks of Curious Creek Fibers. We drove to Fremont and took the BART to the MacArthur Station in Oakland then walked a little over a half a mile to Article Pract. The was was amusing in itself. Lots to see and umm, comment on.
And on Sunday, I brought this to show her...
Fiesta Mittens by Lucy Neatby. (Ravelry link) She approved. It was nice for the both of us to put a name to a face.
After the yarn store, Karol and I went to a coffee shop a couple of doors down, got a beverage and a cookie, knit and people watched. The BART train back was, well, interesting! We encountered a man that was having a difficult time getting information on his phone and kept arguing with a recording as if it was a live person. If you see me, I will go into more detail, lets just say I had tears in my eyes, not from crying though.
