Field Trip with the SNB NEGA Group
So, we had lunch at a great place called Crimson Moon. This is us:
You can hear about the group and see more pictures on Pixie Purls' podcast and blog. Yup - we are famous ;-)
After we took care of hunger and thirst, everybody got the projects out and we knitted. And time flew by - all of a sudden it was one o'clock and we walked to the yarn store. YES - you read correctly - we walked. I loved that. Where I come from (small town in the Bavarian mountains in Germany) you don't drive everywhere, you walk or you take your bicycle. Anyway - we had gorgous weather and Dahlonega is a cute little town.
We visited the local yarn and quilting store Magical Threads - a great store. Very nice selection of yarn. But I was a good girl. I've bought so much yarn recently - so I indulged myself with only one (!!!) ball of sock yarn and a knitting magazine. Am I good or what...
After the visit to the yarn store, the hardcore knitters didn't want to go home yet, so we looked for a nice place to sit and knit. And boy, did we get lucky. We found a table in a corner on a porch on the second floor of a restaurant/ice cream place. Sorry, I don't remember the name, but it was right on the square. So we grabbed that table, it was self-service - nobody bothered us - and we just knitted and chatted and stitched and bitched. It was great - these gals are just very lovely and fun people - well, what do you expect - they're knitters.
So, we decided we have to do that again very soon. The next trip will probably take us to the Athens area. Yeah - right - we are going to Greece for the day. I wish - been island hopping there once - in a former life... It is very nice, sunny and beachy ;-) Ahhhhh - a vacation would be nice now... But no, we're staying here and visiting Athens, GEORGIA, for a day. That's OK, too.
