MIdwest Girl falls in love with Desert
We just returned from Arizona. I was overwhelmed with the beauty, the blue skies, the warmth, and the desert. I had never been there and was completely taken with it. Sedona was amazing of course. Maybe the VORTEX got to me. I dont know, but it was 5 very amazing days surrounded by new beauty for me.
I knitted at the Cubs/White Sox game at Hohokam park. GO Cubbies, we did win! IT was so warm at the game, at only 78 desert degrees, that I had to go cool off in the ladies room twice. I knitted the colorful STR cowl often during the trip.
I am a nervous traveler and knitting calms me down. In crowds, I really search for my knitting to settle me. I broke my needles yesterday before we left the resort. I broke the tip off my plastic circulars. I was able to keep knitting as long as I moved all the stitches so the active tip was in my right hand I am right handed.
The desert flowers were just starting to bloom. Amazing. THey reminded me of delicate poppies here.
I did hit one knit shop! Knit Happens in Scottsdale. One lady there Barbie was exceptionally
nice. THat is where I bought the begonia pink yarn
Happy Saturday it is back to work for me tonight. I am ready. I love to come home too!
