Between one thing and another, it’s been a couple of months since I last made it to a meeting of my knitting guild.  I got to Thursday’s meeting and was so glad to be there.

There was a guest speaker – Robert Porter, owner of Coveted Yarns up in Gloucester – and he brought some of the Flat Rocks Yarn that is locally dyed and sold exclusively at Coveted Yarns.

It’s a great little store, we went in once last summer on one of our day trips to Cape Ann, and even Larry and the boys were impressed. Their online shopping options are pretty robust if you aren’t within a reasonable drive of Gloucester.  (Although I will say, Cape Ann is worth the trip.)

Anyway.  I’ve never met a trunk show that I didn’t like, and this was no exception.

My mother has been hinting that despite all my hat knitting up to Christmas, she hasn’t gotten a knitted hat in a long time… so the purple is for her.  The bluey one will coordinate nicely with my camel coat, I think.

Also, we finally had some snow yesterday.

And there’s more in the forecast.  No surprise – it IS late January, after all.

It’s perfect knitting weather.
